Build Any App with Visual Studio App Center


At Microsoft, we strive to deliver the best developer tools on the planet in order to help make all developers more productive. With Visual Studio App Center, you can easily automate your DevOps lifecycle to continuously build, test, release, and monitor your apps on every platform, so you have more time to focus on your users and their experience.

The App Center Build service is completely free for your first 240 build minutes per month (up to 30 minutes per build) and supports iOS, macOS, Windows, and, of course, Android apps.

App Center supports apps written in Obj-C, Swift, Java, React Native, and Xamarin, and integrates with existing tools such as GitHub, Visual Studio Team Services, and Bitbucket. Once you've selected your repository, setting up build automation for any branch of your desktop and mobile apps takes just a few clicks. Additionally, App Center Build includes other cloud services, so you can run UI tests to retain the highest quality standards and distribute your apps to testers.

If you need more flexibility and customization, you get full access to the build agent in three pre-defined stages during build time: post-clone, pre-build, and post-build. You can run any bash command with build scripts, and securely store sensitive information outside your repository with custom environment variables.
