Android/iPhone application testing – online services

In my previous post I have mentioned mobile application testing on simulator/emulator. This time I will describe the manual mobile application testing using online services. I have searched for online testing tools in Google and found many sites/services. Some of them only allow some devices listed and you can check only a website, by entering the URL. What about the apps made for mobile devices? I continued the search for something where I can test apps and URL’s, too.

Mobile testing – Screen recording on Android – rooted device

Along with the spreading of the Android smart phones, more and more Android applications have been published. These apps should be thoroughly tested before they appear for download in the Play Store.

When testing a mobile application, you will need to take screenshots and record a video to document the error that happened.

There are apps that can make screenshots simple and now if you have Android with Ice Cream Sandwich or above installed, screenshot option is built-in. That’s fine, but what about recording video on Android?

Mobile testing -Taking Screenshot on Android

Taking a screenshot while testing on Android phone can be a bit confusing, since the process isn’t the same on every device. There are different ways to take a screenshot.

1 – Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and above

If you have Android Smartphone with Ice Cream Sandwich or above installed, screenshot option is built-in! Just press the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time, hold them for a second, and your phone will take a screenshot.
