Is it possible to touch mobile screen with no app context?

Post by Marlukaszek » Tue Apr 10, 2018 10:59 am

Hi,
My problem is that I have an app for iOS which can add photos from iOS gallery to itself. When I am entering iOS gallery ranorex is losing context of my app. I think it is not possible to work with orginal iOS gallery with ranorex because it is not install by it but is it possible to just touch center of mobile screen with not context at all? It would cause selection of appropriate photo.

Hi Marlukaszek,

Unfortunately, due to a limitation in iOS itself, it is not possible to automate system applications on iOS. This limitation is called "App Sandbox". With this system, Apple ensures that no app can either interact or even harm the OS.

I hope this information helps.

Best regards,
Matthias
