Rainforest QA Launches Rainforest Mobile, Offering QA-as-a-Service For iOS/Android
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rainforest QA, creators of the world’s first on-demand QA-as-a-Service platform, today announced the launch of Rainforest Mobile, giving Agile and Continuous Deployment teams “QA-as-a-Service” and the freedom to do quick and easy cross-device QA testing for native iOS and Android apps and mobile websites. Rainforest Mobile is powered by the Amazon Device Farm, a crowdsourced pool of 50,000 qualified testers, and virtual devices, allowing users to tighten the quality assurance feedback loop and drive product quality improvement successfully.

Rainforest QA, Recognized for Innovative Approach to Increasing Developer Productivity and Reducing Costs
Rainforest Mobile provides teams with fast, scalable Android and iOS testing without having to write and maintain automation scripts, and which integrates seamlessly into existing workflows.
“Exploratory and manual QA models are super slow, with painful management, turning QA into the bottleneck of development and shipping,” said Fred Stevens-Smith, CEO of Rainforest QA. “Instead, we give you the framework to write test cases — and the execution engine to get results — from real devices, tested by real humans.”
The framework opens a connection to the mobile application, allowing the pool of Rainforest testers to access the app and interact remotely from real iPhone devices running iOS 9.
Rainforest Mobile removes the QA bottleneck for both developers and QA teams, making it easy to do CI and CD, find bugs earlier via faster feedback, and ship products to market quickly.
BusBud, a Rainforest Regression testing customer, has been using Rainforest Mobile in alpha for the past 3 months. CTO Mike Gradek says: “The Rainforest QA Mobile offering for iOS shows a lot of promise. It helps us accelerate our testing — we can go through our regression testing for a release in minutes not hours and it helps our team focus on the areas impacted by the new release. We’ve been able to release more frequently with higher quality and confidence since using the service.”
Rainforest’s subscription model provides increased bandwidth and test coverage without significantly increasing costs, allowing fast-paced QA testing to be done at scale without becoming expensive. Rainforest Mobile empowers QA managers and developers to quickly deliver higher quality mobile apps, rather than relying on outsourced and traditional in-house manual QA.
Rainforest QA’s Functional and Regressive Testing Platform was recently named a Gartner “Cool Vendor” in Application Development for eliminating repetitive, slow, and costly manual QA that can often hinder innovation and the ability to keep up with the increasing pace of business.
Rainforest QA provides an on-demand, QA-as-a-Service platform for crowdsourced testing. The platform allows teams to write functional and regression tests, execute them via our network of 50K qualified testers, and get results in 30 minutes. The Rainforest QA platform enables teams to maintain ownership of QA while testing faster and more efficiently than with traditional in-house manual QA.
