Apptim provides a desktop app that can be installed in Windows or Mac to run mobile performance tests locally using your own devices.

Apptim Desktop apps can be downloaded from here.

These apps can be used for testing both Android and iOS apps.

When profiling iOS apps:

  • Mac users need to have Xcode installed

  • Windows users need to have iTunes installed

When profiling Android apps, Apptim will install all required Android dependencies (if you don't have them installed already) as part of the setup process, the first time you open the desktop app.

Installation

The first time you download the app, you will need to follow the steps below to install it on Windows or Mac.

Note: Make sure you are installing the last version, by checking our release notes.

Windows installation

Windows users will download a zip file that contains the number of the version of Apptim Desktop they are installing. Open the exe file inside the zip file and follow the steps shown in the installer.

Mac installation

Mac users will download a dmg file that contains the number of the version of Apptim Desktop they are installing. Open the dmg file and follow the instructions. You'll need have Apptim app inside the Applications folder for it to work properly.

Mobile device setup

As Apptim Desktop works with you own mobile devices, it needs to be able to access them using a USB cable. Before starting your test, check our guides on how to enable and setup your devices properly so Apptim can recognize them:
