It was roughly a year ago when Facebook announced their intention to open source the React Native framework for building native apps. This wasn’t a big surprise considering their own experiences with the HTML5 based application which got lots of negative feedback. Moving to native was clearly the right move and as they had some good and popular implementation for writing web apps (with React) there was a need to bridge the gap between the native and web/hybrid apps. With this combo, writing native apps for mobile platforms (Android and iOS) is actually very easy and it seems to work well across different setups. But, how to test – and automate the testing of these sort of apps? We’ll take a look at this topic in this blog.
