Zephyr Mobile App Press Release

Written By John Sonmez

I received an email from Zephyr about their new mobile app and I want to share the news to all of you. I'm posting this because this can benefit the software development and QA community.

Here are some of the reasons why the app can make testing easy. One, you'll be able to easily execute tests in one hand and manage in the other. Also, you can test from any mobile device from anywhere, whether you are on the road, in the field, or away from a desk. This is great news for teams who work at different places.

Zephyr has been a huge supporter of this blog and I am glad to post their press release since I have used and loved their products.

Check out the press release below.
