Testing & the Minority Report UI
Cloud-based performance testing provider SOASTA launched a new release that delivers test automation for multi-touch, gesture-based mobile applications.
Through its TouchTest technology, SOASTA provides capture and playback of all touch gestures including pan, pinch, zoom and scroll on both iOS and Android devices. The platform also enables developers to capture the start and end points of each gesture, the path between and the speed with which the gesture is performed
“The way that users interact with data and apps is rapidly changing. Multi-touch, gesture-based applications are adding voice interfaces, and ‘big data’ applications such as logistics, distribution, and media will soon have 3D navigation and hovering browser UIs.” said Tom Lounibos, SOASTA CEO. “The ‘Minority Report’ user interface has arrived, and with it we must have a new test platform to validate the highest quality user experience. TouchTest and our new CloudTest Private Device Cloud will change the game for mobile developers and testers forever.”
