Run UI tests on thousands of real devices and hundreds of configurations.

Each device concurrency comes with 30 device hours per month, with an upgrade option for unlimited hours.

Engage your audience with targeted messaging at the right time.

Pay per number of monthly active devices for targeting more than 5 audience segments.


per build concurrency


per test device concurrency


per 100k monthly active devices


A build concurrency is the number of builds that can run in parallel at any given time. When additional builds are triggered, they are queued and will wait for the previous one to complete.

A test device concurrency determines the number of devices you can use simultaneously. For example, with 5 concurrent devices you can test 5 different device configurations in the same amount of time it would normally take to test 1.

We measure usage in device hours, which is a calculation of all activities on a device initiated by your test. For example, a 12–minute test suite run on 5 device configurations will consume 60 minutes, or 1 device hour. Time spent downloading apps, processing screenshots, and generating test reports does not count as billable time.

Send an unlimited amount of push notifications to all your users at once for free with the ability to target 5 audience segments. In case you need to target more audience segments, just pay $10 per 100k monthly active devices.

For example, your app has 200,000 monthly active devices and you need to send notifications to more than 5 audience segments, you would pay $20 USD monthly.

When counting your app’s monthly active devices, an active device is defined by having the SDK integrated and launched the app at least once in the month.

For 30 days, you will be able to test your app on more than 450 device configurations. With the trial, you can test your app on 1 test device concurrency with unlimited device hours.
