– How choose the automation tool ?

– Verify how you inspect the elements.

– Scalability, How many devices supports (IOS, windows phone, tablet, kindle, ipad, etc).

Integration with other tools like Jenkins, JIRA, etc.

Cloud, If this tool supports cloud tests (Amazon cloud, Sauce Labs, etc).

Automation Support, How long do you take to find the solution for some problem ? (Particularly, this is the most important for me )

– Do some proof of concepts (The configuration it is the hard and most boring part for me).

– Share the right quantity of tests between emulators and devices.

– Distribute the right level of tests between unit (70%), integration (20%) and manual tests (10%).

– Remember that if you are using BDD, it is just 3 layers.

– Use CI since the beginning.

– Decide what must to have in the report.

– Considerate the language which the developers are using (You never know when you will need help).
