Test complete for mobile devices automation

Is test complete support mobile devices automation?

What driver does it uses?

 

I have tests run by appium driver and would like to know if test complete uses the same. 

So it would be easier for me to configure and migrate.

Re: Test complete for mobile devices automation

So it is testcomplete built in driver.

Re: Test complete for mobile devices automation

How does test complete define the android device capabilities?
If I need to set it run app under work profile (user - 10)
and specify app activity?

Hi,

 

https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/app-testing/mobile/android/index.html and related articles.

TestComplete provides very extensive documentation that is definitely worth detailed reading.

And TestComplete is not Appium, thus, again, reading documentation usually answers a lot of initial questions.

Re: Test complete for mobile devices automation

I have read document and can't find answer.
Anyway I have dropped the idea by using test complete to drive mobile automation test. It is not flexible like native appium or robot framework which I can script by using native android method.

Hi,

 

Every tool has its advantages and disadvantages.

But the final decision and the responsibility for it is obviously yours.
