What is Beta by Crashlytics?

A streamlined solution for distributing apps that gives you a single, cross-platform toolset for iOS and Android, and a delightful, effortless onboarding for your testers.

What is Fabric by Twitter?

Installing and managing a wide range of SDKs can be cumbersome and complex. Fabric solves this problem by combining all seven of our SDKs under one roof and organizing them into three Kits: the Crashlytics Kit, the Twitter Kit, and the MoPub Kit.

What is TestFlight?

With TestFlight, developers simply upload a build, and the testers can install it directly from their device, over the air.

HockeyApp is the best way to collect live crash reports, get feedback from your users, distribute your betas, and analyze your test coverage.
When testing apps in the crowd, you never know what exactly was done, and what went wrong on the client side. TestFairy shows you a video of the exact test that was done, including CPU, memory, GPS, network and a lot more.
Instead of just showing you the stack trace, Crashlytics performs deep analysis of each and every thread. We de-prioritize lines that don't matter while highlighting the interesting ones. This makes reading stack traces easier, faster, and far more useful! Crashlytics' intelligent grouping can take 50,000 crashes, distill them down to 20 unique issues, and then tell you which 3 are the most important to fix.
Fabric is a Python (2.5-2.7) library and command-line tool for streamlining the use of SSH for application deployment or systems administration tasks. It provides a basic suite of operations for executing local or remote shell commands (normally or via sudo) and uploading/downloading files, as well as auxiliary functionality such as prompting the running user for input, or aborting execution.
Buddybuild ties together continuous integration, continuous delivery and an iterative feedback solution into a single, seamless platform.

Reviews of Beta by Crashlytics, Fabric by Twitter, and TestFlight
Review ofBeta by CrashlyticsBeta by Crashlytics

We have used this product on several high-profile iOS and Android applications, after using TestFlight for a couple of years; when TestFlight was acquired, Android support was deprecated. Managing two alpha/beta distribution solutions is cumbersome -- the Google Play service is prone to accidental mistakes in terms of release by inexperienced clients, and the TestFlight process is less streamlined for iOS distribution than the latest using Fabric (Crashlytics, Beta, Answer stack). It is simple, free, and platform agnostic -- what more could you hope for?

Used to be our go-to deployment platform but immediately after Apple bought and integrated it they dropped a handful of features, including the ability to deploy Enterprise IPA's. Not sure what the situation is now, but we since migrated to TestFairy and have had no problems.

When it comes to beta testing on iOS, there's really no other solid option. TestFlight is reliable, easy to use and has a set of great API's (albeit somewhat hidden).

We previously used TestFlight to deploy test apps, but since Apple purchased them we've been using HockeyApp so that we can test both iOS as well as Android.
