Prepare your Mobile App for Automated Testing

Currently TestingBot provides Android Emulators and iOS Simulators to run tests against your mobile app.
Below are the steps necessary to prepare your mobile app for Automated Testing.

Building your app

You do not need to install any code or plugin to run a test.
Below are some things that are necessary to successfully run a mobile test:

For Android:
  • Please supply the URL to your .apk file.
    Important: the .apk file needs to be a x86 build (x86 ABI).

For iOS:
  • Please supply the URL to a .zip file that contains your .app
  • The .app needs to be an iOS Simulator build:
    • Create a Simulator build:
      xcodebuild -sdk iphonesimulator -configuration Debug
    • Zip the .app bundle:
      zip -r
