Can mobile apps be tested without access to apk?

Hi, does anyone know if I can record my interactions on my mobile without having to input a specific apk into Katalon?

Hi @pahally1,

To record a test or capture objects, you’ll need to start with an .apk, but it doesn’t have to be the one you’re testing. You could use the sample Android test .apk that comes with Katalon Studio to launch the recorder and then switch to the app you actually want in the emulator.

Playback of the test would be similar; starting with a real .apk and swapping it at runtime:

Hope this helps,
