Mobile devices continue to increase in popularity. All sorts of software applications are developed for a variety of mobile platforms: iPhone, Android, Windows CE and Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and more. Yet mobile devices pose a number of challenges that must be addressed before the user has a chance to get frustrated.
The cost of error in mobile software is high, and verifying that the changes introduced to one of its components are not going to cause problems with the other parts of the application is essential. Yet the time-to-market is ever more important, so the need to run the tests quickly is a must. However, testing mobile apps manually takes significantly more time that testing web or Windows applications – the data entry is much slower on mobile keyboards than on regular ones.
All this makes mobile test automation an imperative. Yet it is tricky. Installing a serious test automation tool on a mobile device is impossible. Using emulators reduces the reliability of the test – after all, you want to make sure the app runs well on the device, not on a PC-based emulator. Special tools are expensive to maintain, and often they do not fit into your overall testing framework.
