Visual Studio Mobile Center (VS MC)

Mobile Center brings together multiple services, commonly used by mobile developers, into a single, integrated product. You can build, test, distribute, and monitor your mobile apps and easily add backend cloud services to scale your app to millions of users on demand.
Build
With Build, you can manage your source code in a Git repository and create an installable app package automatically with every commit or push. Best of all, you don’t need to provision any agents or external machines that run macOS to build your iOS apps. Mobile Center takes care of this and will compile your iOS and Android app right from the source code with no manual setup on your side. Mobile Center supports GitHub, Bitbucket and Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) repositories.
Test
Once the build process is finished, you want to run your tests on real devices. Test Cloud offers more than 2000 real devices in 400 unique device configurations to validate your mobile app’s behavior. Tests can be written for your iOS and Android apps in C# (UITest), Ruby (Calabash), or Java (Appium). This service is backed by Xamarin Test Cloud.
Distribute
When all tests are green, your mobile app needs to get into the hand of testers which is exactly what the Distribute feature offers. Enter a set of e-mails called Distribution Groups and your users can install the app directly on their phones, much as they’d download an app from the app store. This service is backed by the HockeyApp’s distribution feature.
Mobile Center Build, Test and Distribute work together seamlessly, so each of your code commits gets the maximum level of validation. None of these features require any modification of your code.
