Robotium Guide Updated for Testing Apps without Source
You may recall that just two days ago, we covered a guide showing you how to use Robotium for automated application testing. Now, it looks like XDA Senior Member EatHeat‘s handly little thread has received a rather significant revision.
When the previous article went live, we noted that EatHeat was planning an addition to his post to cover Robotium’s ability to test apps using only the APK, rather than source code. They say that good things come to those who wait, but apparently they didn’t specify how long you’d be waiting. The update has now been added to the guide.
As with before, the mojo behind this is the open source Robotium project. If you would like to learn more about Robotium, visit their Google Code page. If you’d like to take a peek at their source and/or fork some of that action, head over to their GitHub page. And finally, if you wish to learn how to use Robotium’s APK testing functionality, head over to the guide thread‘s second post.

The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion. What...
