1 Answer 1

  1. Appium
  2. Calabash
  3. MonkeyTalk .. all of them are support for IOS and Android applications.

But I recommended Appium. It is an open source project for cross-platform test automation. Essentially, it is an HTTP server managing WebDriver sessions. It supports tests in any framework and in any language that can create an HTTP request. No app code needs to be modified for testing. Any test is suitable to run on either iOS or Android on real devices or emulators. It supports native, hybrid, and web apps.

following skills are also required for a good MobileApp QA:

  1. Programming Skills
  2. Familiar with mobile operating systems because when doing test scenarios for automation, the tester has to know whether the step can be simulated with the provided API of the mobile operating system.
  3. Familiar with telecommunications domain knowledge for determining the test environment matrix. For instance, for a video conferencing application, then the network, SIM card, and phone network capabilities play a big part in the test platform matrix.
  4. Familiar with the general telephony functions and their relationship (e.g. SMS, WAP, GSM). For example, incoming, dial, rejected and answered states. With this knowledge and their interaction with the other telephone functions, test cases with state transition test methods can be designed properly.
