Download this comprehensive Mobile Testing Reference Guide to help prioritize which mobile devices and OSs to test against, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.

Check out my latest Geofencing app at Google Play:


Features: Geofencer lets you add, edit, and delete geofences and choose:

  • When you want to be notified (entering or exiting the area, or both).
  • How you want to be notified (phone vibrating or playing a sound, or both).
  • What your phone is to do automatically on notification: turn on/off WI-FI or Blueetooth, put your phone on Normal, Silent. or Vibrate mode; send automatic SMS messages to contacts, etc.

By robotizing actions & firing events on crossing map zones, Geofencer ’s aim is to help bring more intelligence into your Android device.

The app is free as long as you use the one geofence that comes with it, which should be enough for most basic uses. More fences are available through in-app billing.
Give it a try, and feel free to post suggestions & remarks.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
