Rapise lets you record and play automated tests on real Android devices (e.g. Nexus, Galaxy) as well as test applications using the Android simulator. With Rapise you have the powerful interactive Object Spy that makes it easy to record on one device and playback on multiple.
With Rapise you can connect to the Android device and view the device display right from within Rapise. As you interact with the application, you can select specific objects on the screen and Rapise will show you the object properties in real-time:
You can then simply use the ‘Learn Object’ option to record the highlighted object and add it to your test script. You now have a reference to this object for testing:
With Rapise, as you record your interactions with the mobile Android application your test script is automatically populated with the learned object references:
You can now write your test script to automate these objects, using any of the supported mobile actions, including clicking, tapping, swiping and shaking. With Rapise you can simulate 100% of the user actions that can be performed on your application.
Rapise lets you simulate different mobile events during testing:
With Rapise you can tap, swipe, shake, scroll, type and tap in a specific location during the test creation process. This lets you write your test without ever needing to touch the physical device.
Rapise can use your existing set of Android mobile devices. It uses the open-source Appium gateway running on either a Mac or PC to connect to the device, capture the current screen, record your objects and send your actions to the device during playback.
The Appium gateway server can be hosted locally or remotely, since the connection between Rapise and Appium uses standard HTTP or HTTPS for all interactions. With Rapise you can test real mobile actions on real devices.
In addition to testing real physical devices, you can regression test your applications against an unlimited variety of simulated devices using the Android SDK Virtual Device Manager (VDM):
With Rapise, Appium and the Android Virtual Device Manager you are not limited to your set of physical devices. You can test each version of Android, each platform, variant (Gaxaxy, Nexus) and form factor (phone, tablet, phablet, etc.) to make sure your applications are 100% testing on all devices that your users will have. With Rapise you can eliminate the risk of your application not working for your users.
