Mobile Automation Testing
'Automation' performed on mobile devices is referred to as mobile automation.
Introduction to Mobile App Automation Testing
Mobile automation, as the name suggests, refers to ‘automation’ that is done on mobile devices. Automation is the process whereby one automates testing of an application – in this case a mobile application – which can be a WAP site or an app. This can be done by using tools and helps in reducing the testing time cycle.
To run mobile tests, Appium is used instead of Selenium. There are 2 versions of Appium: desktop and console ones, and both are good. Appium must be running every time before the test run.
Application-specific test case development is a process used to develop software for a specific application. The process begins with identify the devices that will be used for testing. A mobile test strategy is then designed and implemented. The lab is setup and the live handset testing is conducted. The results are monitored and analyzed. A final executive summary is prepared.
“We were very pleased with the work with PerfectQA Team and specifically, Rahul conducted QA for us. He found a number of major bugs and lots of minor ones which we had not picked up in our own testing. This helps us tremendously. Thank you!”
