Mobile apps often expose bugs only under specific environment conditions or after specific interactions, making it hard to detect them via testing. By approximating the program behavior under all possible conditions, static analysis is able to fill this gap. TouchGuru is a research project to develop a static analyzer for Microsoft TouchDevelop scripts.
