Kaspresso: Kaspersky gives open access to its tool to test Android apps before they are released. The tool, called Kaspresso, has flexible settings and is easy to use.
With Kaspresso, mobile application developers can significantly reduce the time required to control each application without fear of overlooking a bug, thus speeding up the release process. The tool has already received positive feedback at two major technology conferences - Mobilization IX and Codemotion Berlin 2019.
It is quite difficult for mobile developers to choose a suitable automated control tool that will reduce the time until the release of the application. Today, there are tools for automated testing, such as Espresso and Appium. However, these may not solve all the problems of Android developers, such as their concerns about the readability, recording, and UI testing architecture.
The issues mentioned above prevent mobile application developers from writing clean, consistent, sustainable and comprehensible UI tests. To solve existing problems by making UI testing easy, Kaspersky has introduced a new Android application testing tool called Kaspresso. The tool is based on two libraries for creating automated Android tests - Espresso and Kakao.
Thanks to the inclusion of the Kakao library, Kaspresso improves the readability of UI tests, bringing exam descriptions to a new level, making them more understandable.
"We have decided to make Kaspresso publicly available, as creating a framework for self-tests requires a lot of effort and resources. In addition, self-testing tools for Android simplify the lives of mobile developers. We tried to combine best resources and practices into one tool and add our own best practices and experiences to it. We hope that with the help of Kaspresso, mobile app developers will create better and more reliable Android apps. We also believe that users and the whole industry will benefit from it, ”says Victor Yablokov, Head of Mobile Products Development at Kaspersky.
