Simulator Automation: Sikuli

Now this is pretty nifty — Project Sikuli is a framework for automated GUI testing that works visually using screenshots, and it works on apps in the Simulator! Like this example:

… Select iPhone Simulator, bring URL bar up, enter google.com, submit, type in sikuli as search term, wait for the results and click all visible star icons. This can take a bit to go through multiple times in a row and can become very tedious and frustrating. With sikuli you can run that as an automated script…

OK, now that’s some cool stuff. Looks well worth looking into for implementing automated usability regression testing on your apps, indeed!
