The latest version now supports testing of iOS Apps and Android Jelly Bean based Apps, to add on to the mobile side of Test Automation support. Users will now be able to automate testing of native, PhoneGap and web based iOS apps without Jail breaking the real iDevice in addition to the emulator. As has been the case with Ranorex, users can record one test and run it on any device and in any language.

Excel 2013, Windows 8 UI Apps and SAP GUI Application Technologies have also been added to the supported Desktop Application Technologies list. A separate license is required for the SAP plug-in though. Windows 8 touch interactions and touch gestures that is a part of the Windows 8 UI interface parcel can also be easily automated with Ranorex Version 4.

The list of automation tools facilitating integration with Source Version Control tools is very small, Ranorex being one of the few. Now along with integration of SVN, integration of Team Foundation Server is also available with Ranorex version 4. Which means users now have two options to choose from, to check-in and checkout test project files directly in Ranorex Studio to effectively manage software test projects throughout the IT lifecycle.

The users who hold a valid license are eligible for a free upgrade to the latest version of the tool. Ranorex comes in three editions - Runtime, Professional and Premium. All the licenses can be Node Locked or can be Floating. The price for Node Locked licenses starts from €389 and Floating licenses start from €780. Which is almost the same since April when version 3 of the tool was made available.

You give more, people will want more, I am sure next, the developers and testers would be looking for Windows Phone 8 support, on Ranorex. On Demand model of the tool would be what the individual , or a small team of independent developers/testers, SMB’s and even big enterprises would be looking up-to.
