Hi I currently in the process of investigating doing mobile test automation(iOS) for the salesforce1 app to verify that changes we've made to the desktop version are present in the mobile version and to run regression tests. Is it possible to get access to files such as .ipa and .app from salesforce that have a resigned certificate for 3rd party testing?
There is no way you can officially get access to the Salesforce1
APK files. Of course, there are other tricks in which you can recover these files from the device but they wilL NOT obviously be re-signed for 3rd party testing.
Considering your requirement, the best way to do mobile automation testing is to use the Chrome iOS emulation capabilities with the
/one/one.app emulator, you can then use it with something like Selenium ChromeDriver
