Perfecto DevTunnel provides the ability to debug Android mobile apps on real devices under realistic conditions. This speeds the process of validating new features and fixing bugs that only show up under specific environments or conditions.
Watch the video above, or follow the step-by-step below…
1. Install Android Studio
2. Install Perfecto plugin for Android Studio
3. Download sample app (.apk) – https://github.com/PerfectoCode/AndroidDemoApp
Download the app as .zip file and extract it.
15. Performing a “step over (F8)” command causes the application to crash. So, we know that we need to analyze and understand what is causing the crash.
17. Rerun the app with the debugger and note that it works as planned even when the “input” is empty.
Congratulations! You now know how to connect a real, cloud-based mobile device from the Perfecto Lab into your IDE. Try it out with the next feature you’re building or run some of your own tests on different devices to see if your apps pass with flying colors on other platforms.
