Keepsafe saves 1000s of hours on mobile QA
We run our full suite which gives our engineers more time to work on building new features or improving existing ones.
Keepsafe's QA was manual, tedious & time-consuming.
Keepsafe is a security app, which means they can't afford any regressions. Testing is super important to them and they need to make sure features in their app works as intended. There is also the added complexity of testing camera access and the device's photo gallery, which is virtually impossible to automate.
To tackle testing, their team would gather once every 3 weeks before release, pick up their own devices, and go through a spreadsheet with more than 500 end-to-end tests. Needless to say, they did not enjoy that much, but most importantly, they couldn't spend that precious time working on improving their product.
Freeing up time for the team
In an ideal world, they wanted to move away from Manual QA so they could automatically test a majority of the app’s functionality. The solution to their problem needed to have reliable handling of the device to seize control of the camera, take photos, and populate the gallery. All of which are essential parts of their user experience.
From a week to test the whole app, to two hours
Now that they use Waldo, Keepsafe can automatically manage their gallery with a deterministic population of assets. And after only a few weeks, Keepsafe was running 662 tests across iOS and Android covering 95% of their testing needs.
What used to take a week, now takes a couple of hours. And as of today, Keepsafe has run more than 460,000 tests, saving more than 1,000 hours of QA!
With Waldo, we’re able to test anything around the gallery, which is key to us, without a single line of code.
