Automation is Essential for Mobile Testing

Share Article

Expanding device options and short-cycle release versions increase testing demand. LogiGear Corporation's TestArchitect now provides full Android test automation support.

LogiGear Corporation announces full Android test automation support for TestArchitect™ to enable mobile testing to keep up with the pace of new model releases. According to Comscore 41.8% of US wireless subscribers had smartphones at the end of 2011. Google’s Android operating system is estimated to be running on 47% of the mobile devices, and the frequent introduction of new smartphones and tablets necessitates more and faster mobile application testing.

“Creating and maintaining apps for hundreds of device variations for six major US carrier platforms and multiple application interfaces puts testing organizations in overload,” commented Hung Nguyen, CEO of LogiGear “Robust test automation is the only way that an organization can sustain a mobile strategy.”

Enterprise-grade test automation for smartphones and tablets running Android version 2.1 and higher is now possible with TestArchitect. SDK controls and the WebView-based application allow visualization of both the device and website UI when creating and running tests. Additional functionality includes support for multi-touch, and native and bitmap control recognition.

TestArchitect uses a modularized keyword approach for test creation and maintenance to accelerate mobile device and multiple version testing. Parallel testing and remote agent functionality increase the volume and speed of test execution. In addition to Android, TestArchitect supports a wide variety of desktop applications, platforms and browsers. The multi-platform framework enables a single test to execute across all the supported platforms reducing the time need to write and maintain test cases.

TestArchitect with test automation for Android is now available for purchase. To purchase or request a 30 day free trial visit
