Fabric by Twitter vs TestFlight: What are the differences?

Developers describe Fabric by Twitter as "Mobile developer platform". Installing and managing a wide range of SDKs can be cumbersome and complex. Fabric solves this problem by combining all seven of our SDKs under one roof and organizing them into three Kits: the Crashlytics Kit, the Twitter Kit, and the MoPub Kit. On the other hand, TestFlight is detailed as "iOS beta testing on the fly". With TestFlight, developers simply upload a build, and the testers can install it directly from their device, over the air.

Fabric by Twitter and TestFlight belong to "Beta Testing / Mobile App Distribution" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Fabric by Twitter are:

  • Crashlytics Kit - The Crashlytics Kit gives you a best-in-class toolset to build robust apps: crash reporting, beta distribution, and mobile app analytics that are so easy to understand, we called them Answers.
  • Twitter Kit - Bring the conversation happening around the world into your app. From Login, to sharing, to displaying Tweets natively in your app, the Twitter Kit makes social integration simple.
  • MoPub Kit - The MoPub kit helps you turn your app into a business. Monetize your app with just a few lines of code, and optimize your advertising across multiple ad networks.

On the other hand, TestFlight provides the following key features:

  • Sessions- Discover how testers are using your application. Watch as they progress and take unexpected turns.
  • Crash Reports- Reported in realtime, with environment snapshots and full session activity.
  • In-App Questions- The most effective way to get tester feedback. Get the answers you need by asking questions the moment a checkpoint is passed.

According to the StackShare community, TestFlight has a broader approval, being mentioned in 313 company stacks & 65 developers stacks; compared to Fabric by Twitter, which is listed in 66 company stacks and 18 developer stacks.
