  • It depends on what you mean by "Surface App" and what sort of automation you are trying to do.

    Windows Store apps support UI Automation and can be automated by apps which use UIA. Specific tool recommendations would require knowing your goal. Testing Windows Store Applications with Coded UI Tests is a likely place to start.

  • 'Surface App' Means Surface Application. I am planing to automate our apps flow on surface. so we an reduce our QA workload by repetitively running the app on MS Surface device.

    When i run the our app in windows 8 desktop/lap it by default open in full screen. So further not able to use the UI automation tool for that.

    Do you suggest any tool or any work around for this. ?

  • It sounds like you are talking about testing Windows Store apps.

    See the link I provided previously for a Microsoft provided automated testing tool. Community members may have other suggestions.
