Wind River Expands Android Smartphone Testing Software Portfolio

Wind River, an embedded and mobile software company owned by Intel and based in Alameda, announced this week that it has launched new automated testing software for Google Android-based smartphones, which the company says will improve end-user experience with smartphones, by reducing the time it takes phone manufacturers to run tests on the user interfaces.

Cristina Segal, general manager of mobile Linux testing at Wind River said, “Among the motives for why consumers return their mobile devices, a top reason is a disappointing user experience.” With the automated software testing solution, and accompanying test development kit, she said, smartphone makers will be able to employ automatic tests to mimic human behavior and reduce the time required to build tests for new smart phone applications.

The UX (User Experience) Test Development kit includes the basic test elements to test Android smartphone applications such as the web browser, camera, and e-mail as well as Android Market applications such as Google Maps, Facebook and Twitter.

Better test tools used by manufacturers and developers should ultimately result in consumers happy with their smartphone experience.
