Buddybuild vs TestFlight: What are the differences?

Buddybuild: A continuous integration, continuous deployment and user feedback platform for iOS and Android development teams. Buddybuild ties together continuous integration, continuous delivery and an iterative feedback solution into a single, seamless platform; 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.

Buddybuild can be classified as a tool in the "Mobile Continuous Integration" category, while TestFlight is grouped under "Beta Testing / Mobile App Distribution".

Some of the features offered by Buddybuild are:

  • Frictionless Setup: set up a comprehensive CI system for your iOS and Android apps in just minutes.
  • Customizable Workflow: use and extend buddybuild to meet the needs of your mobile development workflow.
  • Test with Confidence: maintain and improve the quality of your code base with automated Unit and UI testing

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.

"Easy setup" is the primary reason why developers consider Buddybuild over the competitors, whereas "Must have for ios development" was stated as the key factor in picking TestFlight.
