iOS SDK : Testing with TestFlight


Testing software isn't limited to beta testing. There are several techniques to test software, such as unit testing, integration testing, stress testing, etc. Each of these methodologies has its benefit and place in the development cycle. Beta testing is a process in which a pre-release or beta version is distributed to a limited audience that is not part of the development team.

In the early days of iOS development, it wasn't trivial to distribute test builds, gather feedback, and collect crash reports. However, in recent years a handful of services have emerged that make beta testing not only easier, but trivial. In this article, I will discuss one such service: TestFlight. TestFlight allows developers to distribute test builds over-the-air. Fiddling with .ipa files and provisioning profiles is a thing of the past if you decide to team up with TestFlight.

The ease of Ad Hoc distribution is not the only advantage of TestFlight. TestFlight also offers an SDK that gives you a number of great features with surprisingly little overhead. With the SDK installed and configured, crash reports are sent to TestFlight and automatically symbolicated. Another great feature of the TestFlight SDK is checkpoints. You can set checkpoints at specific locations in your application to see if a particular feature is actually used. Checkpoints tie in neatly with sessions. Whenever a user opens the application, a session is automatically started. The TestFlight dashboard shows how long a session lasts and which checkpoints the tester passed during a session. The list of features doesn't stop there. A few other useful features include: in-app feedback, in-app updates, and remote logging.
