GameBench Desktop App

The smart way to test mobile UX.

Test any iOS or Android product from any PC, simply by plugging in.

Key Stats

Over 7,000 active users rely on GameBench tools 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 and iOS device models.

The GameBench Desktop App in three simple steps:

Connect your device
1

Connect your device and launch the GameBench Desktop App to begin.

Test your app or game's performance easily
2

Record multiple tests, and upload them to the cloud dashboard for comparison.

Learn from actionable reports
3

Analyze detailed reports with results, screenshots, and performance metrics.

How the Desktop App fits into the GameBench test suite:

Unlike the GameBench Android App, the Desktop App allows users to test both iOS and Android devices, making it the first truly cross-platform testing tool for mobile devices. Developers no longer need a Mac computer to connect to and profile iOS devices.

Thanks to the fact that the device under test is connected to your Windows, Linux, or Mac PC, the GameBench Desktop App allows you to view the recorded data in real time, which makes it easier to spot issues in the performance as you test.

Note:  An advantage of the GameBench Android app is that it 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 as well.

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.
