Tool Evaluation for Android Automation
I'm currently evaluating several tools to facilitate automated testing on Android. While many of these tools and their creators are quick to tout their benefits, it's rather difficult to discover limitations of the tools. The five tools I'm working on evaluating are:
Does anyone have enough experience with these tools to comment on their shortcomings and/or limitations?
I'm doing the same thing here, but it has to cover iOS as well.
Robotium is a subset of Appium and TestDroid. It's a solid enough way to code in mobile tests in Java.
Calabash is a Steps format that some ppl are claiming can run cloud driven tests. Short answer: It can't.
We spent a few weeks making running demos of: SOASTA, Ranorex, Monkey Talk, KIF, and a few others.
Test Droid was up and running in a couple hours by comparison.
Appurify is making some very big claims, you may want to look at them.
As always, depends what your zookeepers are actually trying to find out/do with mobile automation.
