HELSINKI - Bitbar announces that already over 1000 users are benefiting from its patent-pending cloud-based Android app testing suite, Testdroid [http://www.testdroid.com ]. This end-to-end solution provides the first fully automated, scalable testing platform for any Android application developer, from one-man game developers to large corporations developing a number of apps. Testing taking up to 50% of any development project costs and time, Testdroid provides significant cost savings and time to market benefits by automating the whole testing process, from recoding of test cases to actual running of tests and validation of results.
"We know that Testing Android applications for device compatibility on real devices is currently a major pain but we are still amazed of the high demand for our service," says Marko Kaasila, CEO of Bitbar. "With over 60 000 tests run within the first 3 months are a strong proof that this kind of service is desperately needed to take the pain away."
The company also announces it has raised a round of seed funding from 5 prominent angel investors and Finnvera Venture Capital, a leading Scandinavian early stage investor. The funds will be used for establishing Testdroid as a market leading solution for ensuring device compatibility of Android applications. Bitbar is expanding operations and accelerating product commercialization during year 2012 in Asia, North-America and Europe.
Bitbar has currently operations in Silicon Valley, Finland and Poland.
