Key Stats

Over 7,000 active users rely on the GameBench Android app every month -- including hardware engineers, app and game developers, product reviewers and enthusiasts. They’ve used it to test around 6,000 different apps on 3,000 distinct Android device models.

The GameBench Android app in four simple steps:

We've made the GameBench Android app as easy to use as possible, requiring only a few steps, and no code-changes to start testing your apps, games, and devices.

Step 1

Perform one-time connection to PC

Step 2

Launch the app you want to test

Step 3

Automatically record key UX metrics with less than 5% overhead

Step 4

Visualise metrics on device or sync to web dashboard for full analysis

How the Android app fits into the GameBench test suite:

The Android app has two key advantages over the other tools in our suite, both of which increase the convenience of testing:

  1. The app lets you collect vital metrics without needing to keep your mobile device(s) tethered to a PC
  2. The app lets you conduct manual testing of multiple devices at the same time.

Note:

A third advantage is that the Android app lets you gather full power metrics (volts, amps, watts) on compatible Snapdragon and Exynos chipsets. However, this functionality will soon be enabled on the GameBench desktop application too.

Initial agenda: Mid-2016

Note:Initially, Project ReMark will not be based on roundtables or other face-to-face events. Instead, forum activities will be one-to-one, between each member and GameBench, with GameBench aiming to pin down agreements that all forum members feel able to ratify.

The initial agenda will be focused on hte following points:

Giving forum members a chance to respond to GameBench’s proposed testing methodology, to ensure this methodology treats products fairly;

Giving forum members a channel for responding to, or otherwise protecting themselves from, inaccurate assertions based on real-world benchmarks that are made in public forums (e.g. blogs) and yet are not conducted according to agreed standards;

Given member an opportunity to raise requests directed either at GameBench or other forum members to address real-world benchmarking needs for newer applications like VR

Connecting hardware members with software companies whose apps and games are widely used for real-world benchmarking;

Giving forum members early access to GameBench data, both crowdsourced and generated in-house, before this data is made public.
