Testing is a critical part of the user experience design process. Observing people using your product in a natural setting is the best way to measure how successful your products will be in meeting their goals.

Until now, mobile testing sessions generally needed to be conducted in a lab with weird, home-grown set ups utilising a mixture of tripods, binder clips, gaffer tape, specially marked areas on desks and web cameras. Not exactly what you'd call a natural setting.

Magitest is a mobile usability testing revolution. With Magitest, all you need to test in the lab or the field is the test device. Magitest takes care of everything; from recording the participant's facial expressions, capturing a live feed of the screen and the conversation between the moderator and the test participant.
