Good programmers test, and great programmers test everything. But it's much harder to test user interfaces than raw code. Still, in iOS applications, the user interface is critical... and nothing gets a 1-star review like a bad interface. In this Breakdown, Dan Pilone introduces and demonstrates the UIAutomation framework, which allows for robust testing of your app's user interface. You'll learn how to ensure your keyboards and swipes and text boxes all behave, and quickly impress your users with a flexible and responsive user interface.

The experts in the O'Reilly Breakdown live video series not only break down the concepts of difficult and complex subjects, they also demonstrate practical implementation and use. Each episode features an experienced programmer, developer, or software designer working on real-world challenges, ranging from iPad user interface design and multi-tasking on Android phones to caching in cloud-based applications.
