The Need For Mobile Application Testing
In today's market for technology-based applications and products, almost all business services are compatible with mobile devices. Mobile apps are a global entity today. They are everywhere – in e-commerce, e-bidding, e-learning, e-reservations, e-banking, and social media.
Mobile application testing is different and more demanding than traditional desktop web apps. The biggest challenge in mobile testing is the ever-increasing variety of mobile devices; mobile operating systems, firmware updates, and other adaptations require a large number of test permutations.
Mobile app adoption is happening all over the world today as web app users hope to continue to be able to access the same web services on their phones while away from their computers.
Mobile apps are fast becoming such an important aspect of business profitability that many web-based apps are considering the app-only route. This is a discontinued desktop app and the service will only be available via the mobile app.
This complicates the existing software delivery challenges as users have very high expectations for the quality of the apps they install on their devices.
• Stable and safe
• 100% availability around the clock
The most important considerations for planning a testing strategy can be summarized as follows:
• Maximize test coverage through the optimal combination of emulators and physical devices.
• Choose efficient automated testing tools to reduce regression testing costs.
• Consider different types of tests.
• Perform the test process primarily on Wi-Fi networks and use network tools to simulate network connectivity and other network parameters.
