I can only automate app developed by me?

Post by m.pernice » Mon Jun 10, 2013 3:16 pm

Looking at mobile testing instruction, it seems I can only automate application developed by me.

Is it possible to automate action on different applications including native ones or developed by others?

Thanks

How did you come to this conclusion?
Usually testing is always done without accessing / modifying application source code.
So, it totally possible to automate action on any application, where Ranorex can recognize controls (i.e. almost any kind of application)

Hi,

the only way to automate a mobile app for iOS-devices on a non jailbroken device is that you must have the source code of the app to build in the Ranorex agent.

Kind regards
