Welcome to The Xamarin Show Snack Pack Edition. A Snack Pack is bite sized episode that is focused on a specific topic and covered in just a few minutes. In Episode 6: User Interface Automation, we were joined by friend of the show Charles Wang, Automation Software Engineer at Microsoft, who talks to us about the importance of testing mobile applications and how to build our first UI Test. Today, we take a look at how to created automated test scripts using the Xamarin Test Recorder, a standalone program, available for macOS.

      Hi there and thanks for making The Xamarin Show.
      There is any way to export the test then edit it and then import it again to Xamarin Test Recorder?

      @jzeferino: Currently not that I know of. You can stop, replay, re-insert, and edit a current one.

      @James​Montemagno thanks. Yes, I yes I know that but I ended up needing to edit the file manually due to having a random keyboard on the application for the login.
