We applied the Crashlytics expertise to beta distribution. The result: a streamlined solution for distributing apps
that gives you a single, cross-platform toolset for iOS and Android, and a delightful, effortless onboarding for your testers.

Getting beta testers up and running can be a cumbersome and complex process. With Beta by Crashlytics, your
testers are up and running within seconds of receiving the initial email invite.

We understand the importance your branding has to the overall look and feel of your app. We promote it front
and center to create a consistent brand experience.

Our systems intelligently match your icon’s color scheme throughout each touchpoint with your testers so that
they immediately feel at home with your app.

When you have a new build ready, your testers will see in-app updates and notifications!

We support multiple organizations so you can have the same testers for your work and personal projects (if you want to).

Beta distribution is a complex process with many moving parts. We’ve simplified this process into one
beautiful dashboard that delivers detailed build, tester and developer information right at your fingertips.

We’ve made it easy to track your testers progress. Our intuitive dashboard allows you to manage every
step of the beta distribution lifecycle so you have an overarching view as testers accept, install and
launch your app.

We're device and OS aware. For instance, if you're building just for iOS 7, your iOS 6 users won't get prompted.

See the activity of both your developers and your testers. All in one screen.

View a detailed snapshot of the most recent tester activity to identify new tester status.

Glimpse at an audit trail of recent developer activity as your team distributes, updates release notes and invites more testers. It’s an easy way for everyone to stay on the same page without being in the same room.

With Beta by Crashlytics you have a pulse on your tester’s activity and the issues they experience. Your
distributions are integrated with our award-winning crash reporting solution to help you understand
your build stability. Get performance insight, starting with beta testing, all the way through App or Play
store distribution. From your beta dashboard we directly link to your crash reporting issues list so you can
easily dive right into these issues.


Our UI provides a high-level overview of your top issues so you can fix the most impactful ones first. We
connect and distill the individual testers experiencing these issue, allowing you to reach out to them
for more information.

Beta by Crashlytics is deeply integrated with our existing IDE plugins for Xcode, Android Studio, Eclipse and IntelliJ, with no additional install necessary. Invite and distribute to testers all without having to leave your IDE. Our plugins and build tools empower you with the ability to do more, all within your existing workflow.
