Abstract

In this paper we discuss challenges in testing multi-touch user interfaces. We report on our experiences with testing multi-touch UIs in context of industrial software applications for machinery control. For this purpose we developed a reusable capture/replay approach for recording multi-touch gestures. The tool support is used to establish a gesture library capturing the wide range of individual variants in multi-touch interactions for regression testing industrial applications.
