Ranorex & SeleniumBox

Post by sanTim » Thu Dec 30, 2021 10:31 am

Hello
Is it possible to run mobile tests (native apps) on emulators on SeleniumBox? :?:
If yes: How? I couldn't find any documentation about it, it would be really REALLY nice if one of you would/could share his/her experience with me.

Thanks a lot in advance :D

Hi,

The answer is the same as for BrowserStack. Ranorex Selenium support is only for web-based apps. So no, it's not possible to test native Android/iOS apps with it.

Ranorex recently introduced something called Ranorex Driver, which allows automating DESKTOP apps with Webdriver. But this is also not usable for mobile apps.

That means if I want to use emulators I take AndroidStudio for Android and xCode (on a separate Mac? Mac simulator on same pc?) for iOS?

Hi,

As long as you can create and connect to Android/iOS endpoint, it should be possible to use Android/iOS emulators. I'm sorry, but I'm not a mobile-testing guys, so I have zero experience with emulators. Only limited experience with Android devices ;)
