Wildnet (Manual and Automation)

pcloudy has released a feature called "Wildnet". Using this feature users can test their local site on any android/iOS device on pCloudy platform. Users can use this feature for both manual and automation testing.

Overview

As we know a private server has no public access. These servers are internal to the user's network or they are some kind of staging server (A staging server is a type of server that is used to test a software, website or service in a production-similar environment before being set live).

So Wildnet provides a platform to test private or internal servers on any Android/iOS device present on pCloudy.
