Mobile app testing services aim to produce usable, safe and reliable mobile applications, which were made according to the documentation. Mobile app testing essentially differs from standardized approaches to app testing on PCs, due to work specificity, constructive peculiarities of mobile devices and a variety of mobile platforms.
Software testers from mobile app testing companies highlighted 10 essential tips that would be useful and for experienced testers, and for beginners.
Tip # 1. Use mindmaps and heuristics/mnemonics to make a testing process easier because it’s hard to keep all mobile testing aspects in mind.
Tip # 2. Screenshots, logs, and videos – are the best tester’s arguments.
Tip # 3. Study the application lifecycle, for a better understanding the way the app screen or app itself changes its state.
Tip # 4. The app should work stable with:
- unstable connection;
- no connection;
- extremely slow speed (1-2Kd/s);
- no respond from the server;
- incorrect server respond;
- changes in Wi-Fi connection type.
Tip # 5. If your application supports portrait and landscape mode – pay special attention to the orientation change. It can cause memory leaks, crashes, return to a previous state.
Tip # 6. If there is a third-party service – it will malfunction. It is necessary to think over all the situations and provide a workaround.
Tip # 7. Ask the developers for a debug menu with the functions that will make their and your life easier.
Tip # 8. Don’t neglect to perform mobile application testing service on emulators/simulators – usually, it’s a very powerful stuff.
Tip # 9. Don’t forget to validate the migration of data/caches when version updating. Users can ignore versions and you will have to check the upgrade from 1.0 to 1.5.
Tip # 10. You will need the analysis system of usage and reports of errors.
