I am looking for an application like selenium but for mobile devices such as android/IOS would anyone have any applications that would suit this description?
Have you looked at Appium? I haven't used it but I think it's pretty much selenium for native app testing.
Yes, if you are looking for tool similar to Selenium for mobile application testing, then you should go for 'Selendroid'
Selendroid is a test automation framework fully compatible with Selenium, that's why it is called as 'Selenium for Android'. It can be used on emulators and real devices and can be integrated as a node into the Selenium Grid for scaling and parallel testing.
You can also use the same for iOS mobile application testing with its iOS driver
If you are interested in paid tools then you can also try
- Test Complete http://smartbear.com/product/testcomplete/mobile-module/overview/
- Test Studio http://www.telerik.com/teststudio
- ExperiTest (supports even Blackberry and Windows) https://experitest.com/automation/
- Saucelabs https://saucelabs.com/
I up-voted GKS1's answer because I have used Appium and it's great, once you get it setup.
I will also recommend Telerik Test Studio if you have the funding. It currently only supports iOS but Andorid is coming soon. A major benefit is that it uses physical machines rather than the XCode iOS Simulator. I have found minor differences in emulated devices compared to physical ones.
