Mobile testing focuses on monitoring mobile apps, content, and services on mobile phones. However, bug-free mobile app testing has become difficult and expensive due to complexity across handset makers, carriers, locations, and operating systems. Mobile app systems should be able to keep up with the many changes in its environment. Applications should be tested in ‘real world’ settings and on multiple devices. By using mobile app testing you can identify and solve issues, ensure the best performance on your applications, and meet users’ demands for load capacity and response time needs. Budgets usually determine how mobile app testing is approached.
Testers of mobile apps must be creative. They must think outside of the box and try out different things. Testers looking for different situations that users face when using the app. These situations can range from very impatient users to users without the required setup to incorrect data. Although every mobile app faces different issues, all testers want to go above the limits, change things around, and test over long periods of time. However, these are the factors which cause bugs to be created.
Mobile app testing is often thought of as being a logical, planned and predictable, passes and fails type of process. However, this is very far from the truth. These processes can happen if and when necessary but it shouldn’t be the result of what we do. The main goal of mobile app testing isn’t just to create test cases and find bugs. Rather it is to identify the problems that matter and provide information of value that allows additional project members to have confidence in the release date of the app. The best way to do this is to ask questions.
