Video recording for mobile app testing is a neat feature that provides video as an output from the remote test sessions. When you start a test run on any number of devices and something goes wrong with any of those device runs, it’s a great feature to check what actually happened on that run – by looking at the video.
The Mobile DevOps practices and Continuous Integration/Delivery together enable Agile development. Basically all these together are fully complimentary. As we’ve been discussing Mobile DevOps is a methodology and a set of (good) practices where Continuous Integration/Delivery is more like an implementation of that. And for mobile app testing it has lot of great things to offer.
The most important things in mobile app testing are the efficient use of test automation (using real devices), the right test automation frameworks, and efficient bug catching/handling and notifying developers about those. When it comes to parallelism and concurrent, simultaneous test runs on real devices, that’s what test automation together with CI/CD system is all about.
As you may know, Appium 1.5.x is a complete rewrite of Appium from the scratch.
