1. Record , Stop Record and Replay – Start the recording by hitting Start and Leave the recording mode by hitting Stop. You can now replay your test. To do so press the Play button. You will then get a fresh device so that the replay starts in a clean state. The editor, the device and the operations bar are locked during the replay. You can now follow the execution of your test.


2. Device Operation (Random Input)– This dialog allows you to add a Random Input step to the test script. When this step is executed it sends random touch and key events to your application, or to the browser if are testing a website. As soon as an error is detected the step will fail. The following parameters can be used to configure the step:

Event Count: The number of events that will be sent.

Delay: The delay time between two events in milliseconds.

Random Seed: An integer number representing a certain sequence of events. For the same seed the Random Input step will trigger the same sequence of events.


As soon as the replay has finished, the result is shown at the top. It includes a link to the detailed report about this replay.

3. Detailed Report – In the report, all steps executed during replay are listed. For each step two screenshots are shown. The first screenshot had been taken during the recording and the second when the step was replayed. This allows you to easily compare how your app’s behavior has changed, for example, when running the test on a different Android version or on a newer version of your app.
