The automate toolkit app is a logging framework for tracking mobile device usage and context information across arbitrary Android apps in a convenient and customizable way. A variety of different kinds of data can be tracked, like e.g. user interactions on widgets, interaction types (tap, scale, fling, ...), device information (device type, carrier name, OS information, ...) and also some context information (language, current location, …). The app can be used for starting and stopping the tracking process, changing the settings and triggering the file export. The collected data will be solely stored locally in CSV files which can be accessed using the built in export function.
This app is part of the open source project automate; more information about using the automate toolkit can be found at http://mint-hagenberg.github.io/automate-documentation/download.html
. The open source project is a result of the R&D project AUToMAte (Automated Usability Testing of Mobile Applications) of the Research Group Mobile Interactive Systems
of the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, which was funded by the Austria Research Promotion Agency (FFG) in the Cooperation and Innovation programme (COIN “Aufbau”) under contract number 839094.
