Mobile app manual testing

It would be awesome to do Manual Testing for Native Mobile applications (right now it's only available for websites)

I know there is a weird workaround that can be used right now (https://support.saucelabs.com/customer/portal/articles/2033423-manual-testing-of-mobile-apps), but what i'm proposing (and guessing we are not alone on this) is that this should be as easy as testing websites is right now.

    Is this on the future roadmap? Enterprise user of SauceLabs it would be an excellent feature but not heavily used by us. We use Sauce Labs for all browser base testing and AWS Device Farm for native mobile apps testing. AWS Device Farm just released new feature for remote access to real devices for manual testing -

    I was surprised SauceLabs did not offer this type of testing. I hope they consider this feature request.

    It's under consideration as a more formalized feature, but our highest priorities right now are increasing the reliability of our service and updating our platforms to represent more current mobile devices and specs.

    This feature will definitely help us.

     

    What is the work around? It seems that link is broken.
