Crowdtesting platform Birdflight is being launched this month by Munich-based Testbirds in order to help developers test their apps in beta before launch.
Following the acquisition of a similar app testing platform, called Testflight, by Apple, Testbirds have stepped in with Birdflight to fill the gap. Apple quickly began the process to remove Android testing from Testflight's offer, which is scheduled to happen later this month.
Testbirds distributes iOS and Android apps among its crowd of experts and consumers around the world to help developers understand the customer journey and identify bugs. The platform is free, with premium services being developed, which will include demographically-targeted test groups. The company plans to offer an SDK if interest is high enough.
