It works across multiple platforms - including Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and HTML5 - and handles a broad set of interaction types, including multi-touch, swipe, drag and drop, zoom, scroll, and virtual keypads.
"Organisations are under continued pressure to release higher quality mobile apps faster and more often than ever before and Silk Mobile provides development teams the tools they need to deliver on time and on budget," said Bruce Craig, country manager for Australia and New Zealand at Micro Focus. "Our goal is to make application testing easy for developers and Silk Mobile does just that. With broad support across platforms and easy-to-use visual capture capabilities, Silk Mobile is a one-stop mobile testing solution."
Other features include the ability to record tests from mobile devices; native, image and OCR recognition of navigation and screen content; support for exporting tests in multiple scripting languages (Silk4j, Silk4Net, jUnit, nUnit, C#, MSTest, Python and Perl); and integration with the Silk Central test management tool.
