Mobile Testing

TestingBot currently supports iOS and Android testing on both simulators/emulators and Real Devices.

Configuring capabilities

Choose a device with the dropdown menus below.
We'll then show you example code, which you can use to run your own mobile tests on TestingBot.

1. Select a Platform
2. Select a Device


It's possible to rotate the device before and during your test. Please see these examples:

Rotate before test (iOS only):
desired_capabilities = { "orientation" : "LANDSCAPE " } # or PORTRAIT

Rotate during test:
((AppiumDriver) driver).rotate(ScreenOrientation.LANDSCAPE);

Specifying Appium Version

TestingBot will use the most recent, compatible, Appium version according to the device, OS and version you specify.
If you'd like to specify your own Appium version, you can do this with the appiumVersion capability.

caps = Selenium::WebDriver::Remote::Capabilities.new
caps["appiumVersion"] = "2.0.0-beta.44"
DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities();
caps.setCapability("appiumVersion", "2.53.1");
$caps = array(
  "appiumVersion" => "2.0.0-beta.44"
capabilities = {
  "appiumVersion" : "2.0.0-beta.44"
const capabilities = {
  "appiumVersion" : "2.0.0-beta.44"
DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities();
caps.SetCapability("appiumVersion", "2.0.0-beta.44");

Selenium W3C Example:

caps = {
  platformName: "iOS",
  deviceName: "iPhone 13",
  browserVersion: "16.0",
  browserName: 'safari',
  "tb:options" => {
    "appiumVersion" : "2.0.0-beta.44"
ChromeOptions chromeOpts = new ChromeOptions();
chromeOpts.setExperimentalOption("w3c", true);

MutableCapabilities tbOptions = new MutableCapabilities();
tbOptions.setCapability("key", "api_key");
tbOptions.setCapability("secret", "api_secret");
tbOptions.setCapability("appiumVersion", "2.0.0-beta.44");

DesiredCapabilities caps = new DesiredCapabilities();
caps.setCapability(ChromeOptions.CAPABILITY, chromeOpts);
caps.setCapability("platformName", "iOS");
caps.setCapability("tb:options", tbOptions);
caps.setCapability("deviceName", "iPhone 13");
caps.setCapability("browserVersion", "16.0");
caps.setCapability("browserName", "safari");
$options = new ChromeOptions();
$capabilities = DesiredCapabilities::safari();
$capabilities->setCapability('tb:options', array(
	'appiumVersion' => "2.0.0-beta.44"
$capabilities->setCapability(ChromeOptions::CAPABILITY, $options);
tbOptions = {
	'name': 'W3C Sample',
	'appiumVersion': "2.0.0-beta.44"

chromeOpts =  {
    'browserName': "safari",
    'platformName': "iOS",
    'browserVersion': "16.0",
    'deviceName': "iPhone 13",
    'goog:chromeOptions': {'w3c': True},
    'tb:options': tbOptions

self.driver = webdriver.Remote(remote_url, desired_capabilities=chromeOpts)
driver = await new webdriver.Builder().withCapabilities({
    "browserName": 'safari',
    "platformName": 'iOS',
    "deviceName": 'iPhone 13',
    "browserVersion": '16.0',

    /** Google requires "w3c" to be set in "goog:chromeOptions" as true if you're using ChromeDriver version 74 or lower.

    chromeOptions.ToCapabilities(), TimeSpan.FromSeconds(600));

Testing Internal/Staged Websites

We've built TestingBot Tunnel, to provide you with a secure way to run tests against your staged/internal webapps.
Please see our TestingBot Tunnel documentation for more information about this easy to use tunneling solution.
