Everyone should know that when you submit an application to Microsoft for ingestion into their marketplace the application is test by a real person on a real device. However, one thing I did not expect is that they would test the application on multiple devices.
As I am waiting for the next release of our enterprise application to be accepted into the marketplace I was looking at our data usage logs on our servers and noticed the fact that they are testing with various devices (trust me I know it is MS testing rather than one of my internal users).
Below are a list of the devices that they appear to be using for testing
T8788 – This is the Samsung Omnia 7
LG-C900 – This is the LG C900
SGH-i917 – This is the Samsung Focus (which was the only device there were testing on a few weeks ago)
MWP6985 – This appears to be the HTC Pro
I know this post is really not that useful other than to point out that Microsoft is attempting to do good, multi-device testing on applications prior to certifications.
Till next time,
P.S. As a side note, not only are they testing on multiple devices they are also going into and out of the application MANY times.
