Sauce Labs to Demo New Android App Testing Cloud at Google I/O

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - Sauce Labs Inc, the leading provider of cloud-based mobile and web application testing solutions for software developers, will demo its Appium on Sauce mobile application test cloud at Google I/O. Sauce Labs' participation at Google's annual developer conference, which will be held May 15-17 in San Francisco, will be in the Developer Sandbox, where a select group of companies are invited to show off solutions based on technologies featured at the event. 

"Android applications are exploding in number and complexity as more enterprises look to mobile to guide customer interactions and support key business functions," said Steven Hazel, CTO of Sauce Labs. "With our new hybrid and native app testing tool, Appium on Sauce, we're enabling these developers to bring with them to mobile the kinds of testing best practices they employed developing desktop and web applications."

Sauce Labs' Appium on Sauce is a powerful cloud-based solution that automates functional testing for native Android and iOS apps and mobile web hybrid apps using the popular Selenium framework. Based on the open source tool Appium, it allows developers to write tests in any programming language and simulate how their users interact with their apps, from clicking buttons on the keyboard to swiping to different screens. The Appium on Sauce solution provides software developers a comprehensive, cost-effective and easy-to-use service that scales their testing to ensure quality and integrity of the applications being released to consumers.

Google I/O is an annual developer conference featuring highly technical, in-depth sessions, and showcasing the latest from Google's product teams and partners. In the Developer Sandbox, Sauce Labs will provide demos of its Appium on Sauce, share how Appium was developed and discuss new ideas and best practices for mobile app testing.
