Thanks again to everyone who turned out today for the webinar! As promised, here are the slides, a recording of the video, and links to the resources I discussed.
About this talk: I talk about different forms of testing, UIAccessibility, UIAutomation, and how making your apps testable will help make them accessible to visually impaired users running iPhones or iPads.
Projects I mentioned
- AutomationExample – Easily interact with Instruments from the command line.
- Tuneup.js – Helpers to simplify testing with UIAutomation.
- UIAutoMonkey – Send large numbers of simulated events to your iOS apps to stress test them.
Other test frameworks
- OCUnit – Built in to Xcode, unit testing
- GHUnit – Unit testing
- KIF – Functional testing, Objective C
