        What are some alternatives to Beta by Crashlytics, HockeyApp, and TestFlight?
        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.
        TestFairy
        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.
        BoardingBot
        BoardingBot will create a site for your app and allow users to opt-in to beta testing, and receive a TestFlight invitation automatically.
        DryDock
        DryDock is an open source iOS application that we built at Venmo to manage and install all of our internal builds, allow employees to download new experimental apps at any time and to easily share builds designed for a broader audience with their friends.

        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.

        We employ HockeyApp to test new builds for our mobile applications. It makes it very easy to send out early builds for stakeholders to test.
