Research reveals that FoneMonkey stands out in a market where options for Apple iOS automated functional testing are limited
BROOMFIELD, Colo., Oct 27, 2011 – Gorilla Logic, (www.gorillalogic.com), a leader in enterprise application development services and creators of open source test tools for mobile and rich Internet applications, today announced the availability of new independent research from Ovum Technology (www.ovum.com), an objective analyst firm that enables organizations to make better business and technology decisions. The report written by principal analyst, Michael Azoff emphasizes, “For any mobile application developers targeting Apple iOS and the Flash platform, FoneMonkey should be considered for testing and QA purposes.”
Gorilla Logic’s passion for delivering quality software applications for enterprise customers led to the creation of FoneMonkey. It is the only test tool for iOS that records actions with the iPhone or iPad while in use and plays them back as a test script at any time. It enables the interactive creation, editing and playback of automation scripts that exercise an application’s user interface. Using FoneMonkey, developers and quality assurance team members can create suites of tests that automate and perform user operation sequences, and then verify results. FoneMonkey supports development as well as QA testing, and tests can easily be incorporated into continuous integration environments.
Ovum’s key findings on FoneMonkey 5.0 and FlexMonkey 5.0 include:
• Streamlined automated functional testing for Adobe Flex and Apple iOS applications, with record and playback capabilities for all user interactions.
• Can run tests in an automated, CI testing environment, especially suitable for Agile processes.
• Generates native code for complete test customization and extensibility.
“FoneMonkey is the only automated record/playback UI testing tool available for the iOS platform,” said Stu Stern, president and CEO of Gorilla Logic and co-creator of FoneMonkey. “We are pleased that Ovum’s Technology Audit echoes our organization’s view of the Enterprise Application Development market.”
