IOS - How to use external applications?

Post by cgautier » Thu Jul 31, 2014 3:10 pm

Hello,

in our mobile application (iOS & Android) we encounter an issue with Ranorex when we have interactions with external applications. Hereafter you can find samples :

- Creation of account or connection throw Facebook and come back to the application
- send an email and come back to the application
- send a sms and come back to the application
- give a call and come back to the application

Do you have some advice or workaround to use these use cases which are important to validate for our company.


thank you,

Cédric

Hi Cédric,

Unfortunately it is currently not possible to automate native applications which are not instrumented.
Since we do not have access to these native applications, it is not possible to instrument them.

Hello again,

Account connection is very important feature that many companies have to use and to test.

It will be very interesting if you have some advice how to validate :

- Facebook connection?
=> maybe using the embedded connection throw the mobile settings (this worakround could be a good solution)

- tweeter connection?

- other embedded actions SMS/email/calendar/photo album/camera...

thank you
