Introducing HeadSpin Local

November 30, 2020

In the past few years, and even in just the past few months, we’ve witnessed rapid digital transformation across all industries, as changing consumer expectations present new opportunities for experience innovation. With this comes the need of product teams for a seamless, local approach to application testing and development, as they find themselves facing faster time-to-market pressure and their users increasingly distributed across the globe.

Conventional tools tend to fall short of delivering the velocity and scale, as well as the global reach, required for success in today’s experience economy. That is why we’re proud to introduce HeadSpin Local, a new platform that allows you to test your mobile experiences around the world from an easy-to-use platform powered by HeadSpin’s 24/7 technology.

With HeadSpin Local, you can perform manual testing on real iOS and Android devices running on real carrier networks in 10 locations worldwide  — all from the comfort of your home or local office. HeadSpin Local provides a remote control workbench with full support for gestures and orientation that allows you to upload and debug your apps, games, and other mobile experiences on our pool of real mobile devices without modifications to your app. Plus, you can collaborate with ease by saving and sharing screenshots and device logs with your teams.
