Test and Automate Apps Under Real-user Conditions

Meet Perfecto's Wind Tunnel

Instead of running only functional tests such as login, search, payment, checkout, etc. under generic conditions, Wind Tunnel allows you to test your mobile apps under the same environmental profiles as your users – including location, preferred device(s), network coverage, and other apps running in the background.

Wind Tunnel is just another way that Perfecto helps you deliver great digital experiences every time, to everyone.

  • Test Every Digital Experience

    Use Wind Tunnel™ to expand testing to end-user conditions such as location, preferred apps, network availability (WiFi to Cellular), device conditions, and peak usage.

  • Develop Inside Your Favorite IDE

    Integrate with Selenium and Appium

    Wind Tunnel is part of our Perfecto Test Automation solution. It will work inside the mobile app development and testing environment you already rely on. Learn more about Perfecto’s integrations.

  • Use Point of Interest (POI) Testing to Find Blind Spots

    POI tests will help you pinpoint specific performance and functionality issues such as an online purchase taking too long, or Facebook eating away at CPU. Wind Tunnel will provide detailed dashboard views and reporting so that you can identify and fix the issues before you release them.

  • Create Custom or Use Pre-defined Personas

    With Perfecto you can test across unique personas like Georgia, a corporate road warrior living in Manhattan. Her network is constantly connected but frequently changes from WiFi to Cellular, and she is passionate about brands such as Apple, Verizon, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Expensify and Chase.

  • Generate Interactive Reports Enable Real-time Analysis

    The timeline report will show POI results, timer reports, event stats such as device orientation, apps open or closed, network performance and speed, location, checkpoints and failed actions.

  • Test Automation

    Pump Up Digital Test Automation

    By leveraging our Wind Tunnel™ technology, you can progress from traditional functional test automation to testing real user environments such as network conditions, locations, screen orientation, incoming alerts, app vitals and timers, and background-running apps.

Build Out Sophisticated User Profiles that Pinpoint the Blind Spots

As consumer usage patterns change, so must your test scenarios. To achieve true mobile quality, Perfecto believes you need to bring your users to the lab. The Perfecto Wind Tunnel feature offers a set of user profiles that assist in defining what real user conditions need to be emulated during testing. The goal of the Wind Tunnel is to help you find blind spots that may only be revealed to certain users. The best part? Once you pinpoint the user scenario and failure, you can fix it and then run that same user profile test everytime your release an app upgrade - automated tests that are repeatable and consistent.
