Keynote, a provider of Internet and mobile cloud monitoring and testing, released of Mobile Web Perspective (MWP) 5.2 and Mobile Internet Testing Environment(TM) (MITE) 2.2, the latest versions of Keynote's mobile performance monitoring and content testing products supporting advanced HTML5.

MWP 5.2 and MITE 2.2 empower IT and Web operations professionals to set and achieve performance goals in order to provide a better mobile user experience. Using these solutions, enterprise customers can consistently monitor and optimize their mobile sites around the clock, based on devices, networks and geographies.

Keynote Mobile Web Perspective (MWP) allows users to monitor the availability, response time and quality of any mobile website from the Keynote global monitoring network. Complex use cases that combine navigating websites on a desktop or mobile device and sending/receiving SMS messages can be monitored using MWP. Companies can set instant alerts to quickly inform key members of the operations team who can then address issues and minimize their impact.

Keynote MITE is a tool for testing and verifying mobile content. With MITE, mobile content developers as well as operations and QA teams can instantly verify if website content is correctly formatted and displayed across mobile devices using a built-in library of 2,000 devices and 12,000 devices profiles.

New MWP 5.2 and MITE 2.2 Features

* WebKit Browser - WebKit is the most widely used mobile browser and is embedded in both iPhone's iOS platform and Android phones. Keynote's use of the actual WebKit browser enables accurate performance monitoring for mobile websites. Keynote MWP provides performance measurement data on HTML5 sites that is native and faithful to how smartphone users actually experience the mobile Web.

* Touch Events - Mobile websites taking advantage of smartphone touchscreens allow end users to interact with content in ways generally not supported on the Web. With this release, MWP and MITE are both aware of touch events and provide Keynote customers with the ability to create scripts that mimic a human being actually performing gestures such as taps and swipes. Consequently, operations teams can now monitor the end user experience of tap and swipe gestures on today's leading smartphones.

* Global Infrastructure with Geo-location - The Geo-location API allows smartphones to take advantage of location aware services offered by mobile websites; examples include: downloading store locations on retail sites, finding restaurant lists on Yelp, checking-in on Facebook, seeing local ads on content sites and getting weather updates on Yahoo!

* HTML5's Local Storage - Local Storage is a great new technique Web developers are using to improve the mobile browsing experience. With this release, Keynote MITE supports HTML5 Local Storage giving testers the ability to verify that an entire mobile site has indeed been downloaded for offline browsing.
