Mobile GUI Test Automation: Squish Goes Android

Hamburg, Germany – 2012-06-12 froglogic announced Squish, its cross-platform automated GUI testing tool, will support automated testing for Android Apps on Android-powered devices and emulators.

The Squish GUI testing tool is the market leading tool for cross-platform GUI test automation on desktop, embedded and mobile platforms. By adding the Android Edition, Android App developers finally have the professional GUI testing tool option for software functional and regression testing.

“Squish for Android deeply hooks into the tested App – on the device or an emulator – to grant the tester full access to the App’s object tree, properties and methods. This approach has proven very successful in other Squish editions. Making the creation of more reliable and sophisticated tests than those with image-based testing tools possible”, says Harri Porten, froglogic’s CTO.

Squish for Android comes with the same feature set already known in other Editions: convenient test script recording, flexible scripting capabilities, integration with powerful Eclipse-based test development environment, and more. In addition, it features dedicated support for all Widgets from the latest Android SDK and touch gesture support.

Squish for Android is currently in BETA. Pre-release packages can be obtained by contacting The final version will be part of the upcoming Squish 5 release.

About Squish

Squish is the leading functional, cross-platform GUI and regression testing tool that can test applications based on a variety of GUI technologies, including:

  • Nokia’s Qt Software Development Frameworks
  • Java SWT/Eclipse RCP, Java AWT/Swing
  • Windows MFC and .NET
  • Mac OS X Carbon/Cocoa
  • iOS Cocoa Touch

Squish stands out from other GUI testing tools by giving test engineers the freedom to record and write tests using familiar scripting languages such as JavaScript, Perl, Python, Tcl, and Ruby. Furthermore, Squish provides extremely tight integration with the specific GUI technologies it supports. This gives testers unprecedented access to the internals of the applications they are testing (to data items, controls, widgets, etc.), and also leads to the production of very robust and stable GUI tests.

Squish and all the tests created with it, are completely cross-platform, and work on Windows, Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and embedded Linux.

Squish is being successfully used in QA departments across the world in hundreds of companies both large and small, including, for example, ARM, American Power Conversion, EADS, Ericsson, France Telecom Group, General Electric, Reuters Financial Software, Siemens, Synopsys and Xilinx.
