Do you have your Mobile App Testing Strategy defined?
Are you spending too much time and money on mobile testing by trying to cover too many devices or is your testing coverage inadequate? Do you leverage mix of manual testing on real devices and automation testing? Define your mobile testing strategy!
We are all
going mobile nowadays. If it isn't mobile, it's not OK! But is everything we do
on mobile OK? The increasing adoption of mobile, tablets and other mobile
devices has fuelled the growth of mobile applications in last few years. Mobile
devices have become the prime medium of collaboration for businesses globally,
and mobile applications are driving these interactions.
As per current statistics, 60% of all mobile apps are uninstall if
they taking load time more than 3 seconds and 90% off all apps in general are
eventually deleted. In most of the cases it's the lack of a mobile app testing strategy that's one of the main
reasons for these errors. Because of the fact that mobile app
development needs to go tremendously fast, we tend to
forget this step in the testing process and that is where it goes wrong.
By utilizing the common risk-based testing standards in a mobile
context you can set up a test strategy that is adapted to the mobile world.
First of all, the specific attention points of your mobile project needs to be
defined. Based on these consideration points set up your risk matrix, with an
exclusive example. And as a last step in the procedure, this presentation will
show you what your test strategy will look like based on the earlier
activities. It will focus amongst others on security, compatibility risks,
specific functional tests and many other threats that need to be considered in
the mobile world we live in.
Challenges in Mobile App Testing
How much battery life does the
application use? What good is a mobile device that has to be supplied with
electricity just to power the application.
How does the app functions with limited
or no network connectivity? Minimally the app should not crash; ideally the user should not
even notice a difference.
How fast is the application
installed? With slower processors and networks, users still expect desktop
speeds out of their mobile devices.
How quickly can users navigate the
application? With limited responsiveness spans, mobile devices need to be
How much data will the application
without unlimited data plans or devices without large internal storage be able
to use the application.
Is your App compatible to all
devices? Whether your app is compatible with each potential device
configuration. Because Android runs on a wide range of device configurations,
some features are not available on all devices.
Does your app support multiple OS? Whether your app compatible
with multiple mobile operating system such as Android, iPhone, Blackberry,
Windows and many more.
How much secure user’s data is? Specifically, mobile app
security is paramount for any enterprise today.
