Ensure your Android app performs consistently across Android versions and devices. Start today with a free, full-featured trial.

With the diverse ecosystem encompassing multiple brands, versions of Android, screen sizes, performance levels, and capabilities, including React Native applications, the Android market presents unique hurdles for development and mobile testing.  Developing an app that is compatible with all these devices is challenging. So is building automated tests.

Ranorex Studio delivers the tools you need to perform in-depth Android app testing wirelessly or over USB – with no need to jailbreak a phone or tablet.

Test your mobile app on real Android mobile devices or emulators

Reuse tests across different displays

Automated tests created with Ranorex Studio utilize the powerful RanoreXPath query language to uniquely identify UI elements, rather than relying on coordinates. This makes your mobile tests robust against UI changes and reusable across different screen sizes and resolutions.

Access device-specific information

Include device-specific parameters in mobile tests to ensure your application interacts as expected with real Android devices. Ranorex Studio enables you to effortlessly access information from the phone such as text messages, calls, battery, memory and CPU state as well as mock its GPS information.

Simulate real user interaction

Ensure your Android app is fully compatible with the gestures allowed by different devices on the market. Test on physical devices and emulators to simulate real user interaction, by combining UI objects and text fields with actions such as “swipe”, “touch” and “change orientation” from portrait to landscape.

Just 3 steps to robust Android automation testing

The most time efficient and effective way to test your Android application on real devices or emulators.

Just 3 steps to robust Android automation testing

Use a Wi-Fi or USB connection

A stable and reliable connection is essential during Android automation testing. Using Ranorex Studio, it’s up to you to decide which connection type you prefer: Wi-Fi or USB.

Instrument without device modification

You don’t have to jailbreak, unlock or root your device. Once you’ve connected your mobile device to Ranorex Studio, the instrumentation wizard will prepare it for automation testing.

Create tests instantly

Designing mobile app tests doesn’t require coding skills, and can be done in just a few clicks. Once you’ve designed a test, you can reuse it across platforms, browsers and O/S.

We used many tools as trials at the beginning. We realized that there are no tools better than Ranorex Studio: the UI is very easy to understand and easy to automate data-driven, reusable, and modular tests.

Direct feedback for the developers after check-ins. Saving 20-30 tester days in each regression cycle.

Continue using the tools you already work with and further enhance the Ranorex automated testing capabilities. Due to the lightweight Ranorex Studio mobile tests that result in JUnit-compatible reports, mobile automation tests can seamlessly be integrated with multiple testing and infrastructure tools.

Mobile testing on real devices and simulators

Test native mobile apps

Combine your automated mobile tests created in Ranorex Studio with the powerful capabilities of the open-sources tools Selenium WebDriver and Appium to test native apps based on the Android SDK and React Native framework. This way, you can automate testing of the native browser Chrome on real Android devices and automatically review installation and update processes on your app under test.

For beginners and experts

Design once, run everywhere

Get the most return for your test automation investment and perform cross device and cross browser testing with Ranorex Studio. Once you have designed a test, you only have to change a single parameter to instantly reuse it across O/S versions, browsers and devices, regardless of its screen resolution: from Android wearables and tablets to smartphones.


Comprehensive report & easy debugging

Each test run results in a comprehensive report with a pie chart summarizing all test cases, log messages and screenshots that provide a graphical overview of the test execution flow. When a test automation step has failed, you can rapidly debug it using the quick links “Jump to Item” and “Open in Spy”. If desired, you can send the report via email or save it as PDF.
