Android :: Testing Applications On Device

Feb 11, 2010

I'm trying to make my application (compiled against 2.1) compatible with the 1.5 platform. I've handled all of the res/ folder issues, and have been able to run the app on all platforms without problems. I can run it fine on all emulators, and all devices/OS systems running 1.6 or higher. But on the only 1.5 device I have (HTC Hero), I get intermittent problems.

The only 1.5 device I have is an HTC Hero phone I got free at the Sprint developer conference a few months ago. When I test the app on that device, I have occasionally encountered a bug I've not seen anywhere, and can't find any information about.

I can install the application via the adb install command (although I get two messages about unknown commands), but after installing the app, the icon can disappear from the home screen, replaced either with a different icon or no icon.

When the app is launched in this state, rather than seeing my application name in the title bar, it reads "60.0dip". I don't use this value anywhere in my application.

I have never observed this problem on any other phone I've tested on (G1, myTouch, two Motorola Droids, Nexus One), but as I said I've only got one device running 1.5.

Android :: Testing On Every Possible Device?

Nov 13, 2009

We have many phones, but we don't--and probably never will--have all of them.

It's frustrating that some phones cannot see our apps in the market, and we'd like to know which phones those are.

We'd like to have a simple way to have our app tested on each phone, but at this point there's no easy way to do that.

My question is: what would we as developers be willing to do to get these needs met? Is there enough demand for someone to buy all possible Android devices and charge a nominal fee for these services?

We would pay a small fee to have out app accessed and downloaded on all phones--this would give us a report of which phones could access our app. We would pay a fee to have a step-by-step test ran on each possible device so we could know it worked on that device, at least minimally.

Android :: Testing GPS Based Applications - Phone Choice

May 11, 2009

I'd like some feedback from your experiences on the best option to test GPS based applications. I've been developing apps and in the middle of this will have to ship out to Afghanistan for a 1 year tour. Perfect opportunity to concentrate on the apps in the down-time (nothing to do stuck on a base most of the time in a 10x15 shippping container). This is bad (with bad being a relative term) from the standpoint that there are no "data" plans in Afghanistan for GSM phones. I can get GSM service but no "data" plans. If i buy a Android OS phone I'm concerned about how I can update it with new firmware and load apps. I will have wifi access, but from what I've read this will not enable a "push" of the new firmware update to the phone as if I was with T-Mobile. Any suggestions on what phone i should buy and how to "test' my applications where I can update my firmware and load my apps onto the phone?

Android :: Loading APK File On Device For QA / Testing

Sep 7, 2010

I'd love to get some ideas on best practices for testing our Android software, especially for AT&T devices. We're using a Samsung Captivate, on AT&T. As you know, AT&T disables sideloading (no Unknowns Sources option in Settings->Applications). We need to have our QA team load our apk file onto these devices as part of our testing and validation process. We're willing to install the SDK if needed, and upload the apk file via USB. We are not willing to root the phone.

I am making an android game, but i do not have the money to buy a developer phone. The game is not finished but i should it is testable.. and if i dont test it know i may have a big problem later... it is playable though.

Android :: Unit Testing Android Applications And Specifically Related To Db's

Dec 18, 2009

What is the easiest way to create some kind of test harness for Android apps and to be able to visualize (even on the emulator) what is going into the db? I want to test things like constraints, look at the data, unit test methods, etc. Is there any kind of GUI tool that I can hook up to the emulator to be able to look at the db of a particular app while I'm developing/testing, or are my only options the adb shell and creating test Activities within my app?

I am executing Monkey testing on a Android device. The command i am using is "adb shell monkey -p -v 50000000 > monkey-calculator.txt" When we execute this command i suppose it should send 50000000 events to the device. In my case after sending event #150900 it stopped and i see a message: ":Dropped: keys=0 pointers=0 trackballs=0 flips=0" What does this message tell me?

Android :: Android Functional Testing - Testing Multiple Activities

Apr 16, 2009

I've been exploring the Android test package and I'm very confused on how to implement functional testing for endpoint-to-endpoint.

Consider the example below, I have 4 activities: 1. A Contact List Activity 2. A View Contact Activity 3. An Add/Edit Contact Activity 4. A Sync Contact List activity

I want to automate a few tests that will go through multiple test cases simulating a user experience: From launching the application, to selecting 'Add contact;' opening the add contact activity, entering data, saving it, going back to the list activity, and verifying the new contact was saved properly.

As I understand it, ActivityInstrumentationTestCase<T extends Activity> and ActivityUnitTestCase<T extends Activity>, are only useful for testing single activity functionality.

But what if I need to switch between 2 or more activities inside a single functional test case?

Android :: Unable To Test Applications On Physical Device

Dec 26, 2009

Just started developing apps and am having a small problem. I can test the apps on the emulator but I cannot test them on my physical android device. When I am asked to select a running device I get a device listed as: Serial Number/name:? AVD name: N/A Target: unknown etc,

It seems that my device is being picked up but not able to be used. When I try to run the app I get an "Must set" error.

Is there something I am missing?

I am using netbeans 6.7.1 on Ubuntu 9.10, everything up to date. I have a G2-Touch from T-mobile, if someone tells me where to find it, I will post any other needed information.

HTC Desire :: Move Applications To Sd Card On Unrooted Device

Sep 12, 2010

This requires Froyo 2.2
It doesn't void your warranty
It doesn't delete existing apps
It's perfectly safe
It doesn't require rooting.

I realise there are a few threads about this, but I thought I would make a new one for my easier guide, and hopefully people will find it more easily as they won't have to scroll through pages of other threads to find an answer. I am now successfully running most apps from my SD Card now. I just thought I would make an easier guide as the others are fairly complex for noobs like me............
