Robotium Testing

The Robotium is an open source Android App testing framework with robust functionalities to cover almost all possible scenarios encountered in Android applications. With its powerful features it has become the most widely accepted tool for android Black-box testing to develop test scripts for functional, system as well as acceptance test scenarios. Being an open source framework, is considered an expansion to the Android’s testing framework. It is useful in writing various types of functional, acceptance and system testing scenarios. It works in scenarios where source code is present as well as in those where only the APK is present.

Robotium stands ahead of other android automation tools with full support for Native as well as Hybrid applications. Being a JAVA based library, it is flexible enough to be integrated with various testing frameworks having support for JAVA. It deals smoothly with user actions like Tap, Touch, Swipe, Slide and is versatile enough to assert and verify each and every element on application interface.
