Testing web apps on mobile devices

I am currently testing a website and also want to do so on mobile devices. Is there a solution to do so without having an apk-file to upload?
Or does anyone have an suggestion for another programm that can do so? Even though I am love Katalon and feel safe and fast using it.

Hi there,

What you are trying to do is using your current automation test scripts for mobile browser? If so you just need to execute your web test scripts using connected mobile devices, that’s all.

you totally got my question right and it works after some set up problems with the mobile device! :slight_smile: Thanks a lot!
For iOS devices is this option not available. Is there a way i can still somehow test my web test script on iOS devices?

Hi Lukas,

I came across this discussion since I am facing similar issue. I test website features and I need to test website under mobile devices.
I have android emulator which I am planning to use. I was able to see emulator model under katalon mobile device but I could not mobile object spy and mobile recorder without apk file.

I have tried to test run but I have been getting error since it does not launch mobile browser


For me it worked fine. I run the same test script that I have for desktop PC test, and surprisingly it worked also on an android emulator. I didn’t even have to change anything. Katalon really works great.

Can you help me guide me
