Test an App that is already installed on a device.

When starting a recording, I get the option to choose or add an App to my Android device. The App I want to test is already installed on the device. How do I go about running tests on this please?

Hi stapes,

In order to test an application on a mobile device, the application needs to be instrumented before.
Therefore, you will need access to the corresponding apk-file (for android) or .ipa-file (for iOS).
If you have also access to the source code itself, you can also instrument the application by code. Otherwise you can use the Ranorex Instrumentation Wizard.
Please find more information about mobile testing in our User Guide Hope this information helps.

Regards,
