App Center works seamlessly with Azure so you can export your user data to Azure and analyze it there to learn more about your users.
Let’s first take a look at some real-world scenarios where customer data analyzed over a long period of time helps organizations provide better experiences for their customers.

This is a guest post by Jean-Marie Alfonsi, Freelance Software Architect. At the dawn of the app era, crash reporting was a dull and heavy work. You needed to manually retrieve your crash from your smartphone system, put some context in it and then send it to your custom web service. Being in the golden age of apps, we are now pretty ...
Reposted from the HockeyApp blog. One year ago, we announced Visual Studio App Center as the future of HockeyApp. During this journey we listened to you and have continued to improve App Center in every way. We started out with the next generation of your favorite HockeyApp services: distribution, crash reporting and analytics, and added ...
App Center is the next generation of HockeyApp, and there’s a lot of reasons to start using App Center today. All your existing HockeyApp data and configurations are already available to you in App Center, so you can start exploring today.
With App Center you can perform both unit tests and automated UI tests within a CI/CD pipeline. You should launch your unit tests on a post-clone step and UI-tests on post-build step. While planning your UI test strategy (how many testing devices, how many tests, and how often to perform them) you should consider that UI testing requires more time than unit testing.
The mobile CI/CD approach allows you to simplify and accelerate the process of creating a quality product. Cloud Mobile CI/CD pipeline based on App Center allows to “configure-and-forget” environment for build, test and distribute. In this article we explained mobile development pitfalls and how to avoid them with automation.
All developers must take into consideration functionality, user experience and security when they build and update their mobile apps. These issues are not insurmountable and can be addressed by increasing a focus on secure mobile development best practices with developer training resources, improved security hygiene and the addition of automated security testing approach into the dev pipeline to establish a strong security baseline.
App Center is a modular platform that lets you pick and choose the services you need to continuously build, test, release and monitor apps for Android, iOS, macOS, really whatever platform you choose.
Integrating feature flags with your App Center crash service allows you to reduce the impact of crashes. Such an integration makes investigating crashes quicker and easier and allows for almost immediate rollback of problematic features.
This is a guest post from Daniel Puterman, engineering lead at Applitools. Suppose you’ve built a new Android app and want to build some visual test automation scripts to ensure that it appears correctly on the devices it might run on. Not all the Android devices out there — just the top 20 for now. Suppose further that your app isn’t ...
