One of testmunk’s main goals is to make mobile app testing easier, and we are constantly striving to find new ways to do so. In our efforts to help our clients automate their testing, we have seen hundreds of apps over the past few years, and have noted some similarities between both companies and their mobile development teams. We have had the good fortune to work with companies such as Secret, QuiZup, 3nder, Flipboard, and many more to help them achieve launch success. One of the commonalities noticed in helping these organizations and others is that many of them, when developing completely new apps or working on a major overhaul of an existing app, require a basic test that covers the following:
We soon realized that testing the above functionalities did not need a large script of automated tests. Taking our experience working with various companies, we have developed a universal testcase that detects elements on the views that touch it. Or a “Munkey” test, if you will.
The test detects all elements on the current screen and touches them. Instead of randomly pressing X or Y coordinates on the screen, the “Munkey” is actually interacting with the real app views, providing a more realistic response. As time goes on, we plan to add more interactions, such as swiping, keyboard events for input fields, and more.
After every step, you will see a screenshot. Moreover, testmunk provides execution, logcat and XCode logs for you to check how the test went and help you to identify any issues that might have been detected. This test has been successfully used by several of our clients with very positive results. It’s an easy and effective way to enhance your testing process.
