In the blog post for testing Windows Store apps
, we’ve primarily covered what to test your apps for. While you can manually execute the verification areas we’ve discussed in the previous post, it is more efficient to automate some of these verification areas. Automating the verification of your app has many benefits. Automated testing saves time and money that you’d otherwise spend doing manual testing. Once created, automated tests can be run over and over again at minimal cost and are much faster than manual tests. This helps ensure that the quality of your app stays high and the cost stays low with every new release of the app. Automated testing also improves the accuracy of the verification because even the most conscientious tester might make mistakes during tedious manual testing.
