Controlling the device's springboard enables actions such as: Changing device settings, Interaction with a non-instrumented application (like SMS, Contacts, Dialer…), launch and kill, application life-cycle.

Note:   If your only requirement is to test your application (without controlling the device springboard), you can follow the simple one-step
