dc.description.abstract Along with the significantly widespread of Android devices, Android applications (apps) also dominate the global market, in terms of the users, developers, app releases, and downloads. However, the quality of Android apps is a growing and significant problem. Many apps are released to the market with severe software faults that result in crashes, incorrect behaviors, and security vulnerabilities. Testing Android apps differs from testing traditional software programs because Android apps include new programming features and structures never used before. New types of software faults may be introduced into Android apps by these unique characteristics, but existing software testing techniques and simple testing coverage criteria cannot detect these new software faults, or help developers deliver high quality Android apps.
