Mobile application testing is a process that signifies the functionality, usability, and consistency of developed applications or software. It allows enables to build apps that are accessible across multiple platforms in terms of performance. Well, I got a couple of queries related to mobile application testing and the best tools for the same. I’ve shared my outlook below, considering my immense experience in this same industry.

Although there are two types of testing: Manual and Automated but considering the complexity of mobile applications at present, end to end precise testing required. So, automated testing is an effective way of testing in a faster time but along with this, you need the best testing tools to ensure efficient and fast testing and to select the one make sure to consider the following points:

-Should be able to choose multiple scripting languages

-The test should run across different mobile operating systems

-Script less option for quick test creation

-Smooth integration with CI/CD tools

Next, let me take you to the list of top mobile application tools:

-Appium

This open-source test mainly used to create UI tests for mobile web and hybrid applications covers both iOS and Android mobile platforms and also allows us to reuse the code across iOS and Android suites.

Highlights:

*Allows cross-platform testing

*Allows writing tests with multiple languages like Java, Ruby, JavaScript, and PHP, etc.

*Seamless integration

*Allows recording gestures as code

-Test Complete

One of the tops used testing tools is an automated UI tool that allows executing tests for mobile applications, web, and desktop as well. With this testing tool, you can test native and hybrid mobile apps. It leaves choice on you whether to go for a script or script less option for test generation- quite flexible and easy to use.

Highlights:

*Testing possible on multiple platforms

*Allows manual testing

*Offers keyword-driven tests

*Supports languages JavaScript, C#, Jscript, and C++

*Smooth integration with record and replay feature

-Kobiton

This device allows the manual and automated tests on native, hybrid Android/ iOS, and web. This has built on top of the Appium open source. The best part of this tool is that it keeps on adding the updated hardware and OS to the device.

Highlights:

*Allows tests without script across devices

*Allows faster identification of issues

*Allows testing with prepaid minutes that will not expire

-Calabash

This automated testing framework has been maintained by Xamarin and allows comparison with selenium web driver. To initiate the automated functional testing for native apps it’s perfect.

Highlights:

*Works well with multiple programming languages like Java, .NET, and Java, etc.

*Offers two open-source libraries – iOS and Android

*Experience APIs specialized for the touch screening

-Robot Framework

This open-source test automation mainly used for testing mobile applications, web, and desktop applications with the robotic process of automation. More or less similar to other testing tools but one thing differentiates is that it is used for acceptance level and acceptance test-driven development.

Highlights:

*Cross-platform testing tool

*Vast space with external and standard test libraries

*Allow generating keyword-driven tests

-MonkeyTalk

An automated tool offers interactive tests for both Android and iOS. This open-source tool consists of three exceptional elements which are IDE, scripts, and agents. Make sure to keep the same wifi network on system and device while testing using MonkeyTalk.

Highlights:

*Considerate for the little smooth tests to the toughest data-driven tests

*Controls multiple devices

-Headspin

This testing tool provides real-world with actual improvement in mobile performance. It allows expanding code base via API access.  AI engine available in it organizes all the issues automatically.

Highlights:

*Allows load testing

*Cloud set-up available

*Offer complete visibility- Pre and post-launch

Testdroid

Basically, a set of mobile software testing and development products helps in testing both Android and iOS applications and in the Agile development as well.

Highlights:

*Allows testing on real devices

*Provides API available on GitHub

*Avoids unpredictable costs

*Allows improvement in application rating along with dynamic of client

*Quickest way to publicize the application

Concluding the list here but there are many other testing tools available, these are the few top used tools. One more thing needs to understand, after choosing the best testing tool next start thinking for setting up its testing ecosystem. To get the successful results with theses testing tools make sure to add cloud-based solutions in testing tools if you want high coverage of tests.

Lastly, I would say to select the best tool always checks for the features, highlights, or benefits of a particular testing tool. I hope you’ll get the most reliable testing tool for your application through my article, to get more details for mobile applications; your queries are always welcome!!!
