This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Have you tried a Google search for "ios test automation tools"? –  user246 Oct 22 '11 at 23:50
    
There was also some very good answers in the following question: sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/1/… –  Lyndon Vrooman Oct 23 '11 at 2:48
    
Hi @sahi16, welcome to SQA! Questions that are very broad rarely get useful answers here. If you could provide a bit more context, it's likely that people will be more able to help you - if you're not sure how to do that, read this for some more ideas: sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/how-to-ask –  testerab Oct 23 '11 at 18:03

I don't agree that this is a dupe of "what are some tools for testing mobile web apps". That question is specifically about mobile web apps, this question is about testing iOS apps, which aren't necessarily web apps. You will use different tools to test native apps vs web apps. –  Pete Hodgson Dec 3 '11 at 23:32
    
@pete-hodgson Could you suggest some edits to the question that would make that distinction clearer? I'd like to hear why you'd want to use different tools, and what the differences would be. As it stands at the moment, I'd agree with user246's assessment - it's a question better asked of Google rather than SQA. Maybe you could help to improve it? –  testerab Dec 4 '11 at 14:09

Check out Frank. It's a tool for writing automated acceptance tests for native iOS applications. Sort of like Selenium for native apps. There are screencasts and presentations on the Frank website that give a good introduction to the tool. Most people today drive it using Cucumber, but recently (Oct 2011) a Java driver called Victor was released.

Full Disclosure: I'm the maintainer of the Frank project :)

I like Frank, too. I wrote Victor, the Java front end: github.com/dhemery/victor –  Dale Emery Nov 21 '11 at 22:47

sahi16!

For example, I can reccomend the following one: Froglogic Squish

We use it for testing our Qt Win application and it looks great! Will try it for iOS.
