Nevercode

A cloud-based continuous integration and delivery platform that helps you release defect-free mobile apps. Nevercode will automatically detect and configure your iOS, Cordova and Ionic projects from GitHub and Bitbucket. Then the code signing collector will fetch all signing files for you. You can run UI and unit tests using Appium, XCTest or KIF, and target real devices or multiple simulators, or catch potential bugs with static code analysis. You can also share your build status with your team instantly via Slack, HipChat or Email and deploy to iTunes Connect, HockeyApp, Crashlytics and Testfairy.
