Is there any eWallet available that works on the TestNet? I want to test some payments and so forth and sometimes I want to have an access to an online wallet, so I don't need to hassle with installing Bitcoin on various machines.

I have recently created a Faucet and an eWallet for the TestNet. It is very basic, but serves its purpose.

Unfortunately, every time I try to create a TestNet wallet there and then request a tiny amount to it (0.27 BTC looks like at last load), I get an error that reads: "We are sorry, but an error has occurred. API error 5 (urlfetch: DEADLINE_EXCEEDED) Back to main page. Server code created by ThePiachu." – Patrick Jul 25 '14 at 21:06
OK, seems to be working now. I tweeted @ThePiachu so maybe he fixed! One thing I noticed was that when the CAPTCHA was just the simple numbers on the side of a house (i.e., to use humans to improve Google Maps), the request did not work. However, once they were actual letters/words, they did. Could be entirely coincidental .. – Patrick Jul 25 '14 at 21:12

I built a dedicated testnet wallet during a weekend hackathon

Andreas Schildbach's Bitcoin Wallet for Android comes in a second variant that uses testnet, so you can have it on your phone or tablet with no hassle.
