Google’s Android ecosystem continues to expand rapidly. It is evident that new mobile OEMs are emerging in every corner of the world, bringing in different screen sizes, ROM/firmwares, chipsets, and etc. For Android developers, it becomes rather difficult to cope with the fragmentation.

Luckily, Android (including iOS) developers have had unlimited access to some advanced cloud-based solution, like Testdroid Cloud, to run automated tests on a large scale of real devices for quality assurance. Also the emergence of different Android testing frameworks has substantially eased Android developers’ lives.

Today we are going to behold 5 most used Android testing frameworks and break down the basics and code examples of each. You can also check out top 5 iOS test automation frameworks with examples here.

Best Practice #5: Make Your Testing Data-Driven

Any part of your mobile app that has a potential to change when users interact with it should be seriously tested before the app goes out for public. Naturally, there are several ways to enable efficient testing of those parts and one thing to consider for your mobile app development process is the data-driven testing (aka DDT).

Getting The Best Out of Today’s Android Testing Tools

Every dog has its day and in this case, every blog too. We decided the last blog in our well-read series, Deconstructing Mobile Testing Methods, would end with the list of all lists and would be your raison d’etre or making money and getting those 100M plus downloads on your app.

So far we covered The Pros and Cons of Different Mobile Testing Methods, Using Twitter App as an Example: How to Build Robust and Reliable Automated Tests, our most popular in the series, Advanced Automated Testing as Part of Your Development Work, Goodbye Hand-Written Test Cases! and now our crowning jewel, Getting The Best Out of Today’s Android Testing Tools.

Goodbye Handwritten Test Cases!

Since the dawn of time, humans have always been toolmakers. When we are faced with a problem, trivial or repeatable issue, we tend to seek out a tool that helps us overcome that pesky dilemma. If you think about it, many of the issues we face in software development aren’t very different and for us here at Bitbar, we like the fact that we create tools for humans to solve problems and make automated testing easier (and trivial).

A solid example of the man and tool paradigm is Testdroid Recorder. A trivial task and not necessarily so difficult to do by handwriting gets done automatically with Testdroid Recorder. The most significant difference is that handwriting that test case could easily take days, even weeks. But with Testdroid Recorder, the very same functionality gets recorded, tested and played back in minutes. This tool really does all the heavy lifting for you instantly with no need to reinvent the ancient and still used today, pulley!

The Pros and Cons of Different Android Testing Methods

The Google Play has become an overwhelming distribution channel for developers building their next-big-things, either in forms of applications, games or even services. This ever-expanding marketplace gives developers a global reach and target coverage of hundreds of different Android devices on a rapidly growing and changing platform.

However, due to variety in Android OS/platform versions, fragmentation does exist. Android fragmentation is known to cause multiple and incompatible versions of the system specific to the OEM and that causes applications and games to work differently (or wrongly) on many Android devices.
