Robotium is an open source testing framework for Android applications. It makes it easy to write complex black-box test cases. Test driven development is a methology where tests are written before the actual application.

1. Write a testcase
2. Watch it failing
3. Write the actual source code in you application which enables the test to pass
4. Watch the test passing
5. Go back to step 1
