- [Voiceover] If you're like me,…when you heard that two facilities…to help you test your Android app…are named "Monkey" and "monkeyrunner",…you probably had to hold back a little snicker.…Turns out, these are serious tools…to help you improve your apps.…Despite their common sounding name, Monkey and monkeyrunner…are two different and generally unrelated tools.…Monkey, which we'll look at in this video,…is a stress testing tool.…Monkeyrunner, the topic of the next video,…is an API that allows you to write tests…that control the emulator or device…from off the emulator or device.…
