Surely needs mention http://www.deviceanywhere.com
 
Companies will setup  mobile crowdsource testing for a fee: http://www.mob4hire.com/ (I participated as a tester, not a developer) and http://www.utest.com/mobile-app-testing
A somewhat skimpy list of test tools http://www.mobileapptesting.com/the-best-tools-for-mobile-app-testing/2011/08/, but the blog has other interesting reading IMHO, and the W3C site http://validator.w3.org/mobile/ seems relevant for browser-based apps.
 
An OSS test package (mainly Java?) http://code.google.com/p/mwta/
 
An emulator based on iPhoney http://www.testiphone.com/, though this article slams emulators: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2011/09/carriers-developers-customers
 
Closest AT&T app developer center is in Palo Alto :( http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=21020
 
Local developers ask others informally to try their apps http://groups.google.com/group/san-diego-iphone-developers/browse_thread/thread/8bb65c8282eb0d60# and an idea was floated on this list earlier this year http://www.meetup.com/SDMobile/messages/15287831/ to form a coop of some sort. Motorola supposedly offers remote device testing but is anyone using it?

Hi Alex:

It all depends on What kind of testing we are doing, whether its an application testing or a platform testing. 

For Android there are tools like Robotium and Junit

Another blog where we get useful information about Android Testing is http://unifiedtestinginitiative.org/blog/

For iphone they are many tools like

Squish - Squish is the leading cross-platform/cross-technology GUI test automation tool for functional GUI regression tests. Many companies in all kinds of industries all over the world use Squish to drastically cut down the time spent on GUI testing software releases while increasing the quality of their applications.

Fonemonkey - FoneMonkey lets you create automated tests for your iOS apps by giving you the ability to easily record, edit, and add verification steps to scripts you create by simply interracting with your app in the iOS simulator or device. Scripts can be saved as Objective-C or JavaScript-based tests that can be extended as necessary to automate even the most complex testing scenarios!

UIAutomationtool : This tool lets you run an automated set of tests against an application, and test to see if they had the expected results. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, there is minimal documentation for the tool.

Testiphone- A web browser based simulator for testing iphone web apps, Testiphone is online web browser simulator which provides you an online platform to test your iphone web application.It supports  Internet Explorer 7, FireFox 2 and Safari 3.

if you want to find a memory leaks in iphone app, there is a nice tutorial how we can do it


Hope this helps.

Regards,
Sarath

Hi All:

I recently was asked this great question; any thoughts? 

"From your experience, could you provide some information regarding strategies used in the industry for testing applications on mobile devices. What are the commonly used test automation software on the different platforms?"
(I think we should have a panel talk on this topic as well.  Whomever has the best answer to this will be volunteered to the panel ;-))
 
Alex
