What’s Local Device Connection?

A real device in your hand can be operated more efficiently as if it was remotely rented on Remote TestKit.
Remote TestKit provides features which are very convenient for app testing, such as taking a screen shot, opening a web browser with designated URL, and more.
Now testing features provided by Remote TestKit will be available for your local mobile device in addition to your manual test on the same device in your hand.
There is no need to register your information or obtain a user ID to use Local Device Connection. All you need is to download and install Remote TestKit client software.
