Today’s mobile and web apps rely on a complex web of dependencies to deliver the competitive experiences your users expect. In order to rapidly launch high quality releases on a tight schedule, you need to be able to automatically profile every critical user flow for every build of your mobile app, and quickly identify client-side performance issues across native code, device resources, and 3rd party SDKs.

Embedding HeadSpin’s NimbleApp into CI workflows can help developers, QA, product and engineering managers:

Deep Code Visibility

Profile critical app user flows on real devices. Pinpoint root causes of issues such as crashes, hung and slow methods, and third-party SDK bloat.

Smart Alerts

Catch and fix regressions in your code with built-in AI. Get instantly alerted to slowdowns, crashes, and other critical issues as soon as problem code is introduced.

CI/CD Integration

Seamlessly integrate into continuous integration workflows and automatically analyze every build of your app. Speed up your release checklist and catch hard to find issues.

Ensure total visibility and control throughout the app lifecycle

No SDK or code changes required Test iOS, Android and mobile web apps on real devices in a highly controlled environment.

Create customized user flows Use standard Espresso syntax to create multi-step user flows to profile actions that are critical to your business. Annotate the exact start and stop of measurements with simple log statements.

Diagnose app crashes
Get automated crash reports for all profiled Scenarios along with the accompanying stack trace.

Pinpoint root causes of slowdowns
Examine the call stack or CPU time by dependency to identify slow methods and SDK bloat.

Measure network, memory, and disk usage
See how your app is using system resources for each Scenario that is profiled.

Integrate into CI/CD workflows
Automate functional and performance testing by integrating with any CI/CD tool, including Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, UIAutomator, Espresso and more.

Identify build-over-build regressions
Automatically profile and baseline every build of your app with built-in AI. Identify performance degradation as soon as issues are introduced.

Track performance over time Track the performance history for every build of your app to give your team insight into how app performance has changed over time.

Get smart alerts for crashes and slowdowns
Configure email and Slack alerts to inform you about app crashes or slowdowns.

Automatically compare app builds
Compare full call stacks, system resources, app startup and user flow metrics across app builds to identify the source of performance regressions.

Track method count and package size
Identify APK/IPA package size increases and find out what’s adding to your method count.

“[With HeadSpin alerts] we resolved the regressions in ~21 hours, which is far less time than the multiple days it previously took to identify and fix a regression.”
