The sheer number of Android devices pose a challenge to developers. How do you test your application across such a diverse and ever expanding set of devices? Unit tests might ensure that the business logic is sound. But what about the UI?

And is it enough to rely on the emulator and the few phones you have lying around the office? And how do you go about making sure that testing happens continuously?

In this talk we will show how you might go about automating the random tapping around you do before every release. We will focus on how you make your testing reliable, repeatable, continuous and the results visual. And demonstrate how to achieve this with Android Instrumentation testing and Robotium.

And finally give a quick glimpse at how Cucumber and a hat full of cloud might make your testing a little less painful.
