To input text:
Select a location to enter text (or simply press the ENTER key on your keyboard)
Type text in the textbox
Click  to enter text
[Demo on a live session]
[Open a device. Demo: Typing a URL inside a browser session.]
The device should be in text-entry-mode. Either the virtual keyboard is open or the cursor is waiting for text. In most devices, text entry can be completed in any language supported by the device. The text is sent directly to the operating system, disregarding the virtual keyboard.
In some devices, typing the text at the dialing screen might not be supported. For these devices, the keypad can be used.
INFO: In this section, you will find all of the key details regarding the device you selected, including Model, OS, Version, IMEI, and much more
AUDIO: available for devices with Audio Connected, as shown in the Select Device list. When it is clicked upon - Audio becomes activated. Toggle back and forth on the icon to activate and deactivate the audio.
ROTATE: Device position options:
Rotate View: rotate the displayed image only
Reset: reset the device orientation to default
Restarting and Recovering Devices
Use when needed in test case or on unresponsive device
While the device is rebooting, you can not perform operations. If you attempt an operation, an error may appear
Recover Device – Disconnects & reconnects device to the MobileCloud
Use only if restarting device did not work
In case of persistent failure, please open support ticket.
What is a Repository?
The Repository is your MobileCloud storage space. You can save images with their device skin here. You can also store your applications, data tables, scripts and test flows. This is useful when sharing screenshots may be required for demo purposes.
How to SELECT devices to work with.
We began our ‘hands-on’ experience by having you log into your MobileCloud™ and begin to ‘touch’ devices using simple functions such as KEY PRESS, TOUCH, SCROLL, DRAG, and SWIPE!
You learned where to find DEVICE INFORMATION, ROTATION and AUDIO.
We covered basic TEXT ENTRY.
How to RESTART and RECOVER a device.
We reviewed how to take a SCREENSHOT and where to store it (HINT: in the REPOSITORY)
Basically, you learned how to operate a MobileCloud device just as if the device were in your hands!
What a great start!
