Can not continue testing in BrowserStack

Hi,

I created an account on BrowserStack yesterday to test the website from lesson "Website testing" . I am getting this screen on BrowserStack. I didn't know that you have to pay to test a website. I only used it for 1 day and for 1 website.

I have sent a question to BrowaserStack. Not sure how long they will take to answer.

How can I fix this? Thanks in advance.

Hi a k,

Sadly BrowserStack is free for only 60 minutes per day so in order to get unlimited use per day for one user you will need to pay for a subscription which start at US$29.

Thanks its started working after relogging.

A lot of people use http://CodePen.io

It appears to be free all the time.

If you use Brackets as a text editor, there is a live preview that works with Chrome. No need to use any external sites for working with that. If you use PHP, you need a local server, but the PHP course has a video on how to install an open source one.

Hi Theodore,

Just to clarify, BrowserStack is a device/browser testing tool for websites, unlike CodePen it's used for testing websites across multiple browsers, mobile devices and operating systems.

Thank you. I realized that after I posted, but thought I would leave my answer up anyway.
