Tallinn Tech opens a new mobile applications testing lab ({{commentsTotal}})


The Tallinn University of Technology (TUT) opened its new mobile applications testing lab on Thursday. The lab, part of TUT's innovation and business center Mektory, brings together scientists, students and entrepreneurs, to help test and design mobile services and media.

"We have created an environment for testing applications that has all the versions of the most commonly used mobile phones, as well as pads, in Estonia. They are free for everyone to use. Our doors are open to students, pupils, businesses, and start-ups," said Tea Varrak, the director of Mektory.

Mektory has the largest selection of devices in the Baltics, and it welcomes people from abroad, the project leaders told ETV.

The testing lab offers manual testing and automatic testing to assess installation, functionality, compatibility, performance and security of new applications.

University students get a chance to learn to develop and test apps on different devices with different platforms, while the companies who outsource applications have a physical place where to test that the apps are functioning as ordered.

The Mektory innovation center itself was officially opened in late 2013.
