I was tasked to look for performance testing tools for both iOS and Android. I was wondering if any of you had suggestions or know of tools that are commonly used. I was looking for something like Dynatrace. It offers performance monitoring of production users, performance testing, and crash reporting for both OS's. Essentially what we want to do is run a performance test on our app before releasing to production and compare to previous releases. That way we can track down and fix the new performance change easily.

What I am looking for:

  • Ability to perform performance tests
  • Performance monitoring
  • A comparison of performance across builds
  • Open source or paid (budget doesn't matter all that much)
  • If it is a programming language - Java


  • Production performance monitoring
  • Crash reporting
  • Performs functional automation
  • Good community or awesome support

    You didn't mention the license (should it be open-source) and budget (must it be free, or how much money could you invest) – so could you please edit your post and fill that gap? Thanks! // In case of open-source, there are a few projects on Github you might wish to check. Especially the first two hits, and especially AutomatorX :) – Izzy Oct 20 '16 at 15:02
  • I updated the post. I was looking at something like appium, don't think it can really "performance" test though. I'm not sure what the automater x is, I can't read that language. – Brian Dawson Oct 21 '16 at 11:17
  • Thanks for the update! So do you prefer something open-source? Must it be free, or how much money would you be willing to spend at max? As for ATX: Scroll through the description. Though a lot of it is in Chinese, it's there in English as well (I can't read Chinese either, but it seems "bi-lingual"). I have to leave it at that, as it's not really my area of experience (I'm not a dev ;) – Izzy Oct 21 '16 at 12:57
