TouchZTouchZ

TouchZ soothes app-testers' black-letter days and at the same time helps developers to get better insight of what's the real nature of the bug the testers bump into. Some bugs are impossible to track: testers do catch them but lack understanding what caused the bug stepwise. Sometimes they are unable to take a screenshot of the malfunction found because the app quits unexpectedly. TouchZ is here to help testers and developers, being an integral thread between these two worlds.

The main value of our library is that it optimizes time and efforts spent to test mobile applications and helps app developers get a better idea of how bugs occur.

How to integrate our library into your project

TouchZ main screen

Features

  • Screenshots have additional information on the date when they were taken.
  • Screenshots show your tap activity. In the picture you see an arrow showing the gesture performed.

How it works

The library we developed is integrated into your iOS project and is ready to use. If your app is active and being tested, it evokes screenshots being taken automatically. This feature is activated by particular activity of your app: tap on the screen or any other gesture. Screenshots are not taken nonstop, because our developers don't want your phone memory overfilled with immense number of pictures.

Any time during the app testing period you could organize and send all or some of the screenshots to developers through:

  • email;
  • cloud
  • sharing or export the archive with the shots to other programs.

To get access to the archive or TouchZ settings draw Z on the screen. Then simply pick up the shots and press "Share".
