Azure DevOps vs TestFlight: What are the differences?

Azure DevOps: Services for teams to share code, track work, and ship software. Azure DevOps provides unlimited private Git hosting, cloud build for continuous integration, agile planning, and release management for continuous delivery to the cloud and on-premises. Includes broad IDE support; TestFlight: iOS beta testing on the fly. With TestFlight, developers simply upload a build, and the testers can install it directly from their device, over the air.

Azure DevOps can be classified as a tool in the "Project Management" category, while TestFlight is grouped under "Beta Testing / Mobile App Distribution".

Some of the features offered by Azure DevOps are:

  • Agile Tools: kanban boards, backlogs, scrum boards
  • Reporting: dashboards, widgets, Power BI
  • Git: free private repositories, pull requests

On the other hand, TestFlight provides the following key features:

  • Sessions- Discover how testers are using your application. Watch as they progress and take unexpected turns.
  • Crash Reports- Reported in realtime, with environment snapshots and full session activity.
  • In-App Questions- The most effective way to get tester feedback. Get the answers you need by asking questions the moment a checkpoint is passed.

"Complete and powerful" is the primary reason why developers consider Azure DevOps over the competitors, whereas "Must have for ios development" was stated as the key factor in picking TestFlight.

According to the StackShare community, TestFlight has a broader approval, being mentioned in 313 company stacks & 65 developers stacks; compared to Azure DevOps, which is listed in 79 company stacks and 68 developer stacks.
