About Waldo

Waldo is the world’s first no-code automated testing platform for mobile apps. Until now, testing has either been tedious and manual, or brittle and reliant on engineers scripting. We’ve invented an entirely new, proprietary approach that does not rely on any scripting (🤫 but under the hood, we've built an equivalent of Git for UIs so we're able to navigate application changes). With this, we can deliver the power of automation with the ease of no-code. It's an exciting challenge having no one to copy - now it's our job to lead:
