Best CI for mobile apps by far

Reviewed on 27/08/2019

For mobile developers bitrise is a dream come true. With their focus on mobile they take out all the hassle from the setup process so that even users new to CI should find it easy to setup up their app with bitrise.

Paired with the many predefined and community-provided steps there are very few use cases which can't be covered by bitrise workflows. And if you happen to hit a roadblock their team will aid via Slack or forum.

I have used bitrise on all mobile projects across multiple companies for over three years and never looked back to high maintenance self-hosted solutions like Jenkins. I'll wholeheartedly recommend it to every mobile developer I meet.

Pros

- extremely customizable
- supports yaml for configuration
- super friendly team overall, very developer friendly specifically
- support via Slack and forum
- generous free plan and fair and simple plans overall
- support open source and contributors
- huge steps library which you can use as building blocks for your build workflow
- anyone can contribute workflow steps
- good documentation
- SSH onto build machines for debugging
- initial setup just takes a few minutes and is highly automated
- lots of free open source apps for monitoring bitrise on desktop and mobile
- high availability
- hosted in the cloud -> no maintenance
- supports iOS and Android native as well as flutter and react native

Cons

- storing the configuration in your repository is a hassle and comes with several drawbacks, unfortunate as this would be my preferred way to do config
- workflow management can be cumbersome at times
- workflows could be a tad more flexible
- webapp sometimes could load faster
- API could be more extensive (e.g. they don't have any user login endpoints as of now)
- iOS builds could be faster

Bitrise totally revolutionised my clients' workflows. We do testing releases daily because the overhead of uploads & App Store/Google Play submission is all but eliminated. Especially for multi-flavour or multi-target projects, it is absolutely indispensable.

Pros

Reliable, mobile-focused build automation: it is easy to set up, highly reliable, provides the technical depth needed for extremely customised builds & is intuitive.

Cons

In some cross-platform projects using Ionic or React Native, it's easy to get to the build time limit & the pricing tiers ratchet up quite a lot when you get to the levels necessary to support that. That being said, the system more than pays for itself every month.

Alternatives Considered

Travis CI

Reasons for Switching to Bitrise

I found other CI products to be insufficiently focused on mobile development, unreliable & cumbersome.

It helped us streamline our DevOps

Reviewed on 02/11/2021

Pros

The Build Log feature made the team really organized and in the loop about what to build next and which task to prioritize.
It's always feels Meta to talk about software helps you build other softwares but I am sure that your DevOps will be streamlined with Bitrise.

Cons

The lack of Deployment Management, API and Approval Workflow.

We are automizing all of our mobile services with Bitrise and the process could not have gone smoother. Way easier and more fun than the competitors.

Pros

GUI workflows that have easy to add/setup steps, links with most major services and business chats easily, can set a custom stack for each workflow, the UI/UX is really intuitive and constantly improving.

Cons

The build machines are a little weak but at the price I cannot complain

Alternatives Considered

CircleCI and Travis CI

Reasons for Switching to Bitrise

Because the overall user experience and ease of use was miles ahead at a much better price.
