Mobile application testing services are the specialized services, which aim the production of usable, safe and reliable mobile applications that were made according to the documentation. Mobile app testing substantially differs from standardized approaches to app testing on PCs, due to the work specificity, constructive peculiarities of mobile devices, and the variety of mobile platforms.
There are four main principles of mobile app testing as a service. The given principles only specify the direction and software testers always rely on them when performing app testing. The principles are the following:
Principle #1. Catching of Wi-Fi on the Live Bait
Many modern applications, in one way or another, use a network connection. Not always it is a “full connect”. That is why it’s essential to test the application in four ways:
- Positive case (availability of an excellent and permanent connection).
- Availability of a stable, but not a good connection.
- The absence of connection.
- Connection lose.
The majority of users will hardly see the crashes, but they simply might stop using the application if it loads poorly.
Principle #2. Interruptions
The given principle is one of the central and fundamental principles of mobile systems. Interruptions inflict a substantial harm to the application, because while using an app, the user may:
- Suddenly get a call, message, notification and so on.
- Close one application to open another one, not for a long time and later come back to the first app.
- Put the device into a sleeping mode.
The app behavior on these interruptions should be tested strictly after functional testing service. There, software testers may find and little defects, and more critical ones.
Principle #3. The Peculiarities of Operation Systems & Hardware
Operation systems and hardware installed in mobile devices influence the software performance more than desktops. Progress forges ahead, but the smartphone hardware is not that robust as the desktop one.
Principle #4. Human Factor
If the application is intended for a wide audience, be prepared that a bunch of people, infinitely far from development, will behave quite differently with your application. It’s essential to understand that we can not calculate all the cases when the unexperienced users use the application and what consequences would be. Instead, software testers should check all the app functionality specifications.
Mobile application testing service that is performed on the mobile devices and includes testing of the mobile apps testing updates, usability testing, multiplatform testing and testing the app capability to run on different devices. Mobile app testing requires a unique set of tools and technologies for a successful testing.
