As seasoned app developers, we know that any code change can affect a lot of things: it can cause a crash, create a memory leak or make one of your tests redundant. Whilst finding a crash is easy (assuming of course you can create just the right conditions to trigger it), but to find a memory leak or stop the slow erosion of your test suite requires a lot more effort. So, how can Anteater help?

  • Do you sanity check every screen after every code change? With Anteater you can!
  • Do you know how much memory your app uses after two, five or even 24 hours of use? Anteater to the rescue!
  • Do you know all the tests which your code change could break? Anteater embraces 'fuzzy testing': no more outdated tests!

Anteater automates the basic testing so you have more time to do more interesting things.
