Thousands of mobile developers use Ship.io to deliver the apps on the latest platforms
Electric Cloud, the leader for enterprise Continuous Delivery, today announced updates to Ship.io for mobile continuous integration on the latest Android L and Xcode 6.1.1 development platforms. Ship.io, while officially in beta, is a free SaaS offering that is used by thousands of mobile app developers worldwide to automate build, test and deployment processes for native iOS and Android apps. Ship.io is the first hosted CI service to support the latest versions of both Google’s Android and Apple’s Xcode.
“Mobile app developers are a different breed in that they leverage latest OS versions and development platforms with lightning speed of adoption. We’re pleased to be the first-to-market with support for the latest versions of both Android and Xcode, the two dominant development platforms,” said Prathap Dendi, general manager for Ship.io. “We are committed to releasing new versions very quickly so our growing community of mobile developers can not only use the capabilities, but help refine and improve the Ship.io service.”
Ship.io significantly simplifies and streamlines the mobile app lifecycle process, allowing app developers to focus on the code and quality of the app. The cloud-based platform enables developers to build and test apps within minutes. It automatically detects and configures native Android and iOS projects to allow teams to collaboratively build apps across supported OS, version and device screen types. It connects existing tool chains to simplify and automate unit, functional and physical device testing, and allows teams to run these tests every time code is committed to provide fast feedback. Centralized dashboards provide complete visibility into all build and test status levels, along with management for cross-team collaboration and historical reporting.
In addition to recently released Gradle support, and updates for improved Git polling and GitHub integrations, the latest version of Ship.io for Android L includes the new Material Design visual language, one of the most significant redesigns to Android yet. Still in its early form, the capability allows for the design of apps using the innovative “physical surfaces” that will surely change the way Android looks and feels. The intent is to reduce fragmentation in the Android user interface.
