10 tools for testing on real mobile devices

Keynote Mobile Testing

To test your website or mobile app effectively, you need to cover an ever increasing range of mobile devices, operating systems, screen sizes, browser versions and other capabilities.

Supporting all of these tablets and smartphones, from iOS, Android and Windows, can be expensive if you need to purchase a large number of devices.

Thankfully, there are testing tools that enable you to carry out your testing on a huge number of real mobile devices without having to purchase every single smartphone and tablet.

Here are 10 tools for testing on real mobile devices.
