The Testing Lab

An Open Device Lab for Dallas

As the explosion of web-capable devices continues, digital craftspeople must be able to test their work on real devices in real environments. But buying every new device that comes out just plum crazy, which is why Lifeblue has put together a testing lab of mobile and not-so-mobile devices, and we’ve opened it to Dallas-area developers for free.

Lifeblue Open Device Lab

Monday-Friday: 9am-4pm Free, But by Appointment Only!

Around the office, we also own newer iPhones (5 and 5s), iPads, Android devices, and even a Windows Phone 8.1 device. These are not part of the Lifeblue Testing Lab, but if you ask nicely, someone might loan you one. If your testing requires one of these non-lab devices, please confirm with us beforehand that the device will indeed be available.

Booking the Lab

Book some time in the testing lab. Call 972.984.1899 or contact us online. Make sure to communicate how long you hope to use the lab and if you have any specific device requirements.
