Creating a test

Learn how to create your first test and ensure that your users can always get from point A to point B in your application’s flows.

Waldo is designed to test your app from the perspective of the user experience. Our philosophy is simple: if you know how to navigate your application on your phone, then you already know how to record your flow on Waldo.

How to record a test:

  • On the Waldo Tests dashboard, locate the Create Test button on the top right of the header.
