Gorilla Logic has released its MonkeyTalk cross-platform iOS/Android functional record/playback functional testing platform. The new release combines with the company's existing FoneMonkey for iOS and FoneMonkey for Android open source tools, as well as the newly released Continuous QA in the Cloud service offering.
Pointing to the obvious growth of mobile across the US and elsewhere, IDC analyst Rona Shuchat suggests that companies are accelerating their demand for third-party mobile application testing tools and services. "With Gorilla Logic's new Continuous QA Cloud offering, QA professionals can automate the testing of mobile apps across multiple devices and simulators (in any combination) to meet the increasing demand for highly usable and high-performing mobile apps."
Perhaps not quite the first "comprehensive solution for mobile application testing", MonkeyTalk does carve something of a niche for itself by being able to test native and hybrid applications for both iOS and Android mobile platforms. Using its own keyword-driven MonkeyTalk Command Language for specifying functional tests, MonkeyTalk records, plays back, and validates any user interaction on simulators or devices as well as any gesture on any component.
