In the current technological era, it is normal to find 4-5 new Android-based apps uploaded to the Play Store every week. Seeing competitors deliver apps so frequently creates pressure to deliver quality apps in a short span of time. During this limited time, mobile application development and testing of the business’ purpose should be achieved. With this pressure, there is a need to automate certain processes which can save time while providing a trusted output.
That being said, mobile test automation can save a lot of time and is always preferred over the entire manual test execution process. With much less effort, the verification of frequent test cases that manual execution requires can be automated, and more effort can be diverted to new features of the application, which are vulnerable and tend to have more defects.
