Migrating Existing Services

App Center is the next generation of HockeyApp, Xamarin Test Cloud, and CodePush.

It provides a unified suite of capabilities that will greatly benefit a mobile app developer during their continuous delivery process of build, test and distribute to testers, while monitoring the app for crashes and user analytics. It also integrates mobile backend services of Identity and Tables (for storage). Some of these capabilities are built from ground-up while most others are using existing services like HockeyApp (Distribute & Crashes services) and Xamarin Test Cloud (Test service) under the hood.

HockeyApp

Today customers can sign-in to App Center using their existing HockeyApp account credentials. We've synchronized your existing HockeyApp apps and data with App Center. This allows you to login to App Center using your HockeyApp credentials and try out all the services App Center offers without affecting your HockeyApp workflow. Your apps are now two places at once with back-and-forward synchronicity. You can continue to use HockeyApp as you would normally. Get the high-level overview on the process or read the documentation.

Xamarin Insights

If you are a Xamarin Insights customer, we do not have any plans to move your data to App Center. We recommend that you move your production apps to HockeyApp as soon as possible, as HockeyApp will offer a transition path to App Center.
