21. Testing Your Applications

Test early, test often, test on the device. That is the quality assurance mantra we consider most important when it comes to testing Android applications. Testing your applications need not be an onerous process. Instead, you can adapt traditional QA techniques, such as automation and unit testing, to the Android platform with relative ease.
