In TestComplete, you can connect to Android devices managed by an Appium server and create and run automated tests on these devices. In this tutorial, we will use a ready-to-use solution provided by BitBar, a cloud-based mobile testing service by SmartBear.
We will show how to create a free trial account and use it in the tutorial. Requesting a trial takes only several moments and requires only an active email.
You can sign up for the trial before you start the tutorial, or you can skip it and do it later when you start the actual test recording. Both ways are acceptable.
1. Sign up for a trial BitBar account
