Mobile Engine 3.0

Tricentis Tosca Mobile Engine 3.0 enables you to automate tests of mobile applications. You can execute TestCases on different mobile platforms, devices, and applications using different types of connection.

Types of platforms

The Mobile Engine 3.0 supports the following mobile platforms:

  • Android

  • iOS

Types of devices

You can test mobile applications on the following devices:

  • Smartphones

  • Tablets

  • Android emulators

  • iOS simulators

Types of applications

You can test the following types of applications:

  • Native applications, that is applications developed for a specific platform or device, thanks to which they can use the built-in features of a mobile operating system.

  • Hybrid applications, that is a combination of a native and web application. In a hybrid application the web content is wrapped in a native application.

  • Mobile web applications, that is mobile websites that you open in Chrome for Android or Safari on iOS.

Additionally, you can execute TestCases on native and hybrid applications developed with the frameworks: Xamarin, Cordova, React Native, and Flutter.

Types of connection

You can test mobile applications using one of the following types of connection:

  • Direct connection: connect the device to the workstation with Tricentis Tosca using a USB cable.

  • Remote connection: use the Appium Server to connect to the remote device, emulator, or simulator.

  • Online clouds: access the device, emulator, or simulator using any Appium based cloud, which means Tricentis Tosca is cloud-agnostic.

  • TestProject: scan and steer your mobile application via TestProject, which enables you to automate iOS devices without a Mac and Xcode. For detailed information, see chapter "Prepare and run mobile tests in TestProject".
