At QATestingTools, we continuously thrive to break through the monotonous ways of presenting Testing Tools and Test Management Solutions, with focus on a precise and a comprehensive visitors’ engagement model!
UA Studio is a fully visual tool for defining your application objects. Users point and click to capture Snapshots which contain all of the intelligence required to expose and organize application objects and attributes. It offers a universal agent for automated testing, providing superior object recognition, faster throughput and the most robust runtime stability available.
NativeDriver offers test automation for Android and iOS native applications. It implements the WebDriver API. Google has created NativeDriver, an implementation of the WebDriver API, a test automation framework that uses the native UI instead of a browser UI, as Selenium does, to run functional tests on an application. Google has decided to reuse the WebDriver API for native applications instead of creating a new one due to many similarities between them - they both control the same UI operations such as click, type, read text, switch window-, and users familiar with WebDriver do not need to learn another API and can start using NativeDriver immediately. Currently working on the following versions:

Ranorex is a Windows GUI test automation framework which provides seamless testing of a wide range of desktop, web and mobile applications. As every robust test automation project requires reliable user interface object recognition, Ranorex focuses on providing the best possible recognition for all types of desktop, web and mobile software applications. Ranorex’s award winning object recognition relies on smart RanoreXPath technology – RanoreXPath reduces effort in maintaining tests and at the same time simplifies the testing of dynamically built user interfaces.
mAutomate is an innovative and cost-effective framework for evaluating mobile apps across diverse handsets, networks, operating system versions, and geographies. mAutomate enables to execute automated tests on remote mobile devices connected to the provider networks–there’s no need to root or jail break those devices. It also provides key performance analytics about device CPU, memory, services, battery, and more while you run your test cases.
eggPlant is TestPlant’s GUI automation and software testing product. This black-box driven test tool does not interact with the underlying code, eggPlant is ideal for GUI test automation and black-box testing of any application including those that can cause problems for other tools such as: Flash,. Java, HTML, .Net, Silverlight. eggPlant is used for the entire testing process, from authoring scripts to evaluating results. eggPlant is installed on one computer per license. From there, you can author scripts and run them against any other computer. eggPlant uses Virtual Network Computing (VNC) to “look at” the SUT and send mouse and keyboard commands to it.
M-eux Test allows you to automate your mobile application test cases. The test scripts are based on C# and are easy to create, maintain and re-use. It is the leading product for test automation of mobile apps running on Windows Phone, iOS, Android, BlackBerry and other mobile OS.
Test automation tool for iOS, Android, Blackberry and WindowsPhone. Records on real devices (no jailbreak required). And on Emulators. Objects identified by Native / Web properties. Same test runs on different devices (e.g. andoird test runs on iOS). Plugs into UFT (QTP), MSTest/VisualStudio/TFS, RFT, TestComplete, C#, Java, Perl, Python. Mobile device connectivity: local (USB to tester PC) or remote (onsite Cloud) mobile test automation toolUFT (QTP) and Visual Studio add-onscode export to: UFT (QTP), JAVA, C#, RFTcode export to: TestComplete, Python, Perl
MonkeyTalk automates real, functional interactive tests for iOS and Android apps - from simple "smoke tests" to sophisticated data-driven test suites. Native, mobile, and hybrid app, real devices or simulators. The platform has three fundamental pieces: the MonkeyTalk IDE, the MonkeyTalk Agent, and MonkeyTalk scripts. MonkeyTalk can test apps running on real hardware, and it can also test apps running in the iOS Simulator or the Android Emulator, on tethered devices and untethered devices connected to the network. It is robust, cross-platform recording and playback -- no jail breaking required.
Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS or Android SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser. Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a "webview" -- a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app.Appium is "cross-platform": it allows to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS and Android testsuites.
WebDriver is a tool for automating web application testing. Selenium-WebDriver was developed to better support dynamic web pages where elements of a page may change without the page itself being reloaded. WebDriver’s goal is to supply a well-designed object-oriented API that provides improved support for modern advanced web-app testing problems. The primary new feature in Selenium 2.0 is the integration of the WebDriver API. Selenium-WebDriver makes direct calls to the browser using each browser’s native support for automation. How these direct calls are made, and the features they support depends on the browser you are using. It drives the browser directly using the browser’s built in support for automation.
Sikuli is a visual technology to automate graphical user interfaces (GUI) using images (screenshots). Sikuli Script automates anything you see on the screen without internal API's support. It can programmatically control a web page, a desktop application running on Windows/Linux/Mac OS X, or even an iPhone or Android application running in an emulator. Sikuli IDE or Sikuli Script -- this all now is SikuliX
Bstriker ALTM encompasses Features/Requirements, Development, (Automatic and manual) Testing and Defect management SAAS or on premise connecting or fully integrating with 3rd party applications from different vendors.
Bstriker’s main goal is to help companies to achieve high quality standards and to real time measure the level of quality of a software application.
Mobile application testing is a process by which application software developed for hand held mobile devices is tested for its functionality, usability and consistency. Mobile applications either come pre-installed or can be installed from mobile software distribution platforms. Mobile application testing can be categorized as:
Mobile devices have witnessed a phenomenal growth in the past few years. A study conducted by the Yankee Group predicts the generation of $4.2 billion in revenue by 2013 through 7 billion U.S. smartphone app download
By no means should QA management and their teams avoid test suites - including automated iterations - altogether. These resources can be extremely useful for software testers and help them dig up a variety of issues. However, no single asset should be given too much focus, as they will each display some strengths and weaknesses. Quality development practices should include a comprehensive arsenal of testing tools to aid the efforts of QA professionals. Explore the top 10 risks to keep in mind when taking a test suite approach to QA.
Some QA leaders have found that their collected data doesn't always effectively address the questions they have. This may occur for a variety of reasons, but a likely culprit is a lack of context. Testing metrics should not be considered in a vacuum. To get the best results from these assets, QA management must consider numerous measurements and the implications they offer as an entire unit.
This is the second part of Amit's tools he was experiencing during his work. This great list shows tools that can help any tester to succeed in his/hers quest. Good tester is the one that know, not only to activate the testing machine or application, also has strong ability to know and learn how to use wide range of tools that will help him/her to analyze the SUT and summarize in the correct manner. After going through the tools in this list, QA doesn't seem so simple any more.
