Mobile tests can be recorded and run on both physical and virtual iOS and Android devices. The recording itself can be performed on Windows, Macs or Linux computers using a web browser. When you record a mobile test, Testim converts each action into a test step which is shown on the Testim Visual Editor screen. However, you can always manually add additional steps to the test by Editing Tests. The tests are added to the Test Library and can be run at any time.
There are two ways to record a mobile test:
Recording a Mobile Test Using a Local Device - local mobile tests can be recorded and run locally on both physical and virtual iOS and Android devices.
Recording a Mobile Test Using VMG - The Virtual Mobile Grid can be used to record tests as well as to run them across a wide variety of iOS simulators and Android emulators. It is included in the license for paying customers and does not require any special integration.
iOS virtual/physical recording
For iOS, tests that were recorded on a virtual device, such as the virtual devices provided on the Virtual Mobile Grid, can be run on virtual devices only. And tests that were recorded on physical devices can be run on a physical device only.
