Test Studio for iOS and MonoTouchSo test away! Completely free of charge, and yes, downloadable from the App Store!

If you are into creating iPhone and iPad apps using MonoTouch, then we have just given you a head start to outperform the competition. Xamarin and Test Studio’s iOS development squad joined forces to help you not only easily build amazing iOS apps with C# and .NET, but also ensure they work as expected and meet your users’ expectations.

Test Studio for iOS now supports testing of MonoTouch applications out-of-the-box. All you need to do is configure your MonoTouch project with our testing extension, and it becomes testable. You can do this without ever leaving MonoDevelop, Xamarin's MonoTouch IDE.

Watch a short video on test recording and playback of MonoTouch apps with Test Studio for iOS.

Once the application has been configured, recording and playback works exactly the same as it does with a regular iOS application. C#-based MonoTouch applications compile into native iOS applications and make use of all the common UIKit controls. MonoTouch developers can take full advantage of all Test Studio for iOS features: 

  • No jailbreak - out-of-the-box support for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch (iOS 4.0+) 
  • Test native, Web and hybrid apps 
  • Test all common UIKit-based iOS controls 
  • Object-based recording rather than image element detection 
  • Get your Beta testers early in to the game – have them record feedback, send comments & screenshots 
  • No need to record everything from start to update your tests. Test maintenance is a whole lot easier. 
  • The tool is fully functional on the device you’ve deployed it on. No need to go back and forth between various devices and simulators.

How do you get started? First you need to get your free Test Studio for iOS copy from the App Store, and then compile our Extension for native iOS app testing with your MonoTouch app.

If you’d like to learn it all from the source, there will be a live demo co-hosted by Test Studio for iOS & MonoTouch product development guys – a good chance for your to ask all the questions you have. The webinar will take place on August 16th @ 11:00AM EDT and will be presented by Robert Shoemate, Telerik Test Studio for iOS Developer Lead and Mike Bluestein.

Be sure to reserve your spot now.
