In recent years, research on mobile application testing is becoming popular. Testing of mobile application is more complicated compared to other applications such as web applications. User interactions in web applications are limited to its GUI through the mouse and keyboard. On the other hand, mobile applications are also inuenced by external events like phone calls, GPS, and hardware sensors. In this paper, we propose an approach for generating test cases for mobile applications, specifically Android applications, focusing on external events. Our approach considers events that are both handled and not handled by the mobile application, which we refer to as explicit and implicit events.
