One of the traditions in my wacky subset of the testing world is not only building mnemonics, but adding / remixing them. And so, I introduce COP FLUNG A GUN. Which is COP FLUNG GUN plus Automation.

Automation

The primary way to test mobile apps remains to be, literally, by hand. But we’re starting to figure out how to do it though automation. (No thanks to the OS vendors…) As automation frameworks get more mature we should check whether automation hooks are provided by the developers. Unique ids or other identifiers for all interaction bits, synchronization points exposed, etc.

Also included in this is integration into your CI system, since that is the bit that controls the execution and reporting of the automation.
