With the mobile market exploding, mobile testing tools are increasing in number, functionality, and integration options. Where once it may have been difficult to find something that worked across multiple platforms, now there are many to choose from. Keeping up with such fast-paced changes is not an easy task, but at QA Mentor we know it’s crucial to the future of software quality assurance. Our QA Lab Compatibility Service utilizes all of these mobile testing tools and more, with new additions to our list being added all the time.

Android SDK

Android SDK The Android software development kit (SDK) includes a comprehensive set of development tools. These include a debugger, libraries, a handset emulator based on QEMU, documentation, sample code, and tutorials. Currently supported development platforms include computers running Linux (any modern desktop Linux distribution), Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later, Windows XP or later; for the moment one can develop Android software on Android itself by using AIDE – Android IDE – Java, C++app and Android java editor app. The officially supported integrated development environment (IDE) is Eclipse using the Android Development Tools (ADT) Plugin, though IntelliJ IDEA IDE (all editions) fully supports Android development out of the box, and NetBeans IDE also supports Android development via a plugin.
