Reliability of these applications therefore becomes a matter of great importance. In this thesis we looked at the current trends in mobile operating system which show Google’s Android is the most popular and sold operating system. Moreover with increase in development of mobile applications with a rich Graphical User Interface, the need for automated testing for the GUI has increased.GUI plays an important part in the success of mobile application as it the most accepted and popular way for the user to interact with the application. If the GUI of the application is poor no matter how useful or resourceful the application might be the user will not like if it keeps on crashing and showing errors. We have a look at Android’s architecture and GUI testing for android application and various kinds of tools used for GUI testing. We during our research found out various existing problems that normally occur in GUI of android application and the techniques and tools that are used to overcome such problems. We went through various tools and frameworks for Android GUI testing to know which tools are best for testing the GUI.
