For those of you who have not yet heard, all Xamarin Subscriptions
Include Xamarin Test Cloud Device Minutes. This is awesome as any android developer
will know, it’s hard to know what your app will look like when your device
looks proper on all the Android devices in existence (currently there are over

looking UI wise.
Now you might be saying “But Mitch, I use <insert one of
the many UI testing services here>, I don’t want to use Xamarin test cloud.”

with Xamarin Test Cloud.
A lot of the services out there are mostly for
Phone Gap app UI Testing.
You can test Xamarin, iOS, & Android apps
