Testdroid Brings Clarity to Android Fragmentation

Saying the Android market is fragmented is an understatement. Develop for Android and you are essentially developing for more than 400 different Android devices in the world today running different versions of Android with an unknown amount of carrier and manufacturer-dictated tweaks. The market is huge and varied, which is a challenge as well as a potential benefit.

Recording from WebView

Hi all,

I would like to present how to implement WebView in your application for good cooperation with Testdroid Recorder.

First issue is, that we can’t handle any events from WebView, if you don’t use own WebClient and don’t override method shouldOverrideUrlLoading with command view.loadUrl(url) For example:

[sourcecode language=”java”]
webView.setWebViewClient(new MyWebViewClient());

private class MyWebViewClient extends WebViewClient {
public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
return false; //it doesn’t matter true or false for recording

If you override this method websites are opened directly in WebView, not in default browser. Anyway, all what we are able to record from WebView are clicks on screen (x, y), drags, send keys and enter texts. I hope this help you testing your application with WebViews.

Instagram test cases created with Testdroid Recorder

Before we start, please download the latest version of Testdroid Recorder and install it in Eclipse. Here you will find instruction how to do it. Restart your IDE and start testing your application.
We will use Instagram application as an example to show how to use Testdroid Recorder and how it works with market applications. Let’s start 🙂

Testdroid to play at Developer Sandbox during Google I/O 2012

May 15th, 2012 by Bitbar
Woot! The Testdroid team just received an invitation from Google Android Developer Advocates team to play at the Developer Sandbox at this year’s Google I/O conference.
We have developed Testdroid based purely on standard Android frameworks omitting all proprietary stuff, really in the spirit of openness of Android platform itself!
And we will be announcing something totally new at the event too.
Google I/O is the kind of event that you really want to participate, chat with all the other developers and show your stuff to people. We heartily thank the Google’s team for inviting us!

So, if you’re coming to I/O 2012 in June, you’ll have a chance to talk to Testdroid developers about Android apps testing, continuous integration, and, well, Android.

Instagram in Testdroid Cloud

We will be writing a short series of blog posts on using Testdroid tools, Recorder and Cloud for testing your applications behaviour on all the different devices automatically and after every change. In theses posts we show, how to use Recorder to record your clicks and drags on your device and how to create good set of testcases. You don’t have to create everything from empty class. After that, you can simply run the tests in Cloud and check how your application looks on different resolutions, UI themes, APIs or hardware platforms.
