Mobile App Testing: Types, Approach and Best Practices
“Mobile first” is the motto now a days for many companies. Recent research directs that the global enterprise mobility market is projected to reach $174 bn by the year 2017! Mobile apps are unique, they need a special treatment and should be frequently tested to meet end-user expectations, and this agile process especially requires set-ups to be on top of infrastructure and processes to support frequent mobile app deployments and pushed updates.
The number of mobile device types is resulting in explosion of devices which is now further complicating mobile device testing strategy efforts, because of the range of device screen sizes and resolutions, hardware API access, network and performance is fragmented and changes rapidly. The pace of change in the mobile market presents challenges in particular to the testing team, and this pace is unlikely to slow down.
Today, so much stress is positioned on end-user experience, predominantly when it comes to mobile where end users believe the identical level of performance from mobile apps as they do from web apps. Also, enterprises need easy proficient business technology, but they also desire security. Businesses are understanding the need for secure mobile apps and mobile business progression workflows. As a result secure instant messaging apps preserve their top title app for smartphones and unseated custom apps, moving up to the third position in the most activated app category.
Mobile app testing can be very challenging, but building a complete test strategy that understands the nature of various platforms and tools is the key to success. Providing a trustworthy and hermetic test environment is as important as the tests you write. To achieve sound results your approach should be focused.
Firstly, to ensure the quality of any Mobile App, target device selection is the most significant job, then comes the analysis of the devices and OS being used the most by the application audience. Next the companies should classify the testing scenarios to ensure maximum test coverage. Along with this to ensure maximum market coverage use simulators, emulators and cloud devices support. To be cost effective use effective test automation tools. Last but most important to track the productivity of development and testing teams use trend chart matrix reports, helping you to plan and achieve milestones.
