Automating mobile apps

Recommended Posts



We are a development company writing a mobile application. I'd like to add automation testing for the mobile app. I know AutoIt can drive mobile emulators and I know that doing this for games is banned. Rest assured I'm not planning to automate games.

However, every post I see on the forum that mentions android emulators (such as Memu, BlueStacks etc) get locked with a warning that driving games is banned.

Is there a recommended way of automating mobile apps that will be accepted by the community here?

post 15 in above and search for adb.

Nowadays i have the luxury of hp uft and mobile labs deviceconnect to deal with android and ios.

My advice for android use espresso and for ios use xctest as i assume you build native apps or go for the more expensive cost at least initial startup cost with uft and mobile labs.

Or start building a udf in autoit depending on the knowledge you have in your company
