Mobile App Testing
Make Your Mobile App A Key Advantage For Your Organization
The mobile application industry is one of the most competitive and dynamic industries in the digital transformation era. Users are increasingly demanding for faster and more responsive applications at their fingertips.
However, ensuring that an application is fit for the best user experience, involves time, expertise, and infrastructure that are costly, which is where external mobile QA services come in.
The main challenge that demands a QA is the sheer diversity of available mobile devices out in the market. These devices differ in terms of screen size and shape, operating system, hardware capacity, network connectivity, etc. Most QA providers explicitly stipulate that they test for both functional and non-functional features of mobile applications.
Manual & Automated Testing
Mainly focused on user experience, and how that application interacts with the user. However, manual testing takes time, since bugs are harder to detect with the manual explorative approach. It is recommended that only 20% of QA testing should be manual.
Assess an application based on an array of test cases - based on those that are most frequent, those that are easy to automate, and those that are tedious to leave to manual testing.
Similar to web application testing, mobile application testing also uses functional testing, compatibility testing, performance testing, security testing, and usability testing. However, there are also tests that are specific to mobile application, namely:
- Installation testing
- Upgrade testing
- Integration testing
- Landscape/Portrait Mode Testing
- Battery Drain Testing
- Memory and RAM testing
- Interruption Testing
- GPS, Touch Testing
- Connectivity testing
- Sound/Vibration testing
- Carrier-specific testing
- Error Handling
