NEWS: Robotium 5.6.3 is released!

Robotium 5.6.3 is the fastest, most accurate and stable version of Robotium yet.

New functionality includes: clickInRecyclerView(int itemIndex, int recyclerViewIndex, int id) and Config.sleepDuration, Config.sleepMiniDuration (to adjust the execution speed, lower means faster) and more. See the Javadoc for more information.

Robotium provides the following benefits:

  • Test Android apps, both native and hybrid.
  • Requires minimal knowledge of the application under test.
  • The framework handles multiple Android activities automatically.
  • Minimal time needed to write solid test cases.
  • Readability of test cases is greatly improved, compared to standard instrumentation tests.
  • Test cases are more robust due to the run-time binding to UI components.
  • Fast test case execution.
  • Integrates smoothly with Maven, Gradle or Ant to run tests as part of continuous integration.
