Authors(5) :-Dr. K B Priya Iyer, Haritha J, Divya G, Sanchana G, Subasri B

In recent years with the growth of mobile smart phones, the number of android application increases rapidly. Automated testing is necessary for these applications. Automated test are used almost during every testing process. The properly organized automated testing reduces mobile applications often simply called as "apps" are used often to perform number of activities. There is a wide choice of tools for automation some are free of cost. Some automation tools for android application are created and some appeared on the market and each has unique feature. The paper focuses on comparing the effectiveness of various automated tools for android applications based on the software quality factors. The paper also analyses the best tool for detecting faults by considering various features.
