Mobile App Testing Why is it important to take care of product quality?
Mobile software development is an impressive and growing part of the software market. More and more not only user, but also commercial software functions in various fields of activity are transferred from desktop computers and laptops to smartphones and tablets for iOS and Android. Investing in mobile applications pays off faster than developing desktop programs, and it is mobile software that is the engine of digital business transformation. And taking into account the specifics of using smartphones, testing mobile applications is especially important to increase the number of conversions and increase the popularity of software.
Mobile applications for iOS and Android are a useful component that can be connected to server or cloud business management systems, such as CRM and EPR solutions or accounting software that has extensive tools for desktop computers. But mobile programs can work without a desktop version.
There are solutions on the market in such serious niches as online trading or banking software only for mobile operating systems.
Online sales systems for mobile operating systems and other solutions involving the use of payment cards are convenient and popular, but also more vulnerable than desktop programs. Portable equipment has many wireless access and data transmission channels that should be protected from hacking by ill-wishers, but mobile operating systems have less functionality (including security) than desktop solutions. In addition, a smartphone or tablet with all the saved financial information can simply be lost.
Therefore, before launching all the programs for portable devices, primarily financial applications and solutions in the field of Internet banking, they undergo mandatory mobile testing, the principles of which are slightly different from the classical testing of programs.
How mobile testing differs from traditional software testing QA MobileApps
Although the software testing phase is important for the development of any types of programs, including desktop and mobile versions of the software, in the case of mobile testing, its value increases. The fact is that, unlike stationary computers and laptops, smartphones and tablets have a narrower specificity of use and slightly different functionality.
The following affects the use, and therefore the testing of mobile applications.
Due to the described reasons, the mobile app may make a number of errors, which can lead to different consequences. For example, a mobile program may shut down with or without loss of data entered. One way or another, testing mobile applications is a mandatory step in ensuring their quality, which should be included in the overall development cycle of a mobile software product.
What types of mobile applications exist Types of MobileApps
The features of testing mobile applications are affected by the specifics of their development and execution. There are three types of mobile applications:
They make greater use of device capabilities and mobile testing is easier. After all, initially there is a restriction on the device matrix and error scenarios;
The main types of testing mobile applications QA MobileApps
Testing mobile applications is carried out in various ways. A mobile program can be opened or installed on a specific device or run through an emulator on a desktop computer. There are beta testing services, when end users are involved in the verification of mobile software.
In any case, before the release of the program, these types of mobile testing are usually performed:
Acceptance testing of mobile applications and further technical support QA MobileApps
The final release of the mobile application ends with acceptance testing or beta testing and the release of a stable version of the software. You need to understand that the process of developing and testing applications does not imply the release of ideal programs that will work seamlessly on all existing devices. In most cases, mobile testing is limited to the criterion of reasonable sufficiency.
We have a considerable portfolio of executed orders in the field of software development for iOS and Android, including cross-platform web applications and installed programs for online trading, financial management, CRM systems, etc.
The necessary experience in testing mobile applications, ready-made device matrices and our own program verification algorithms allow us to optimize the time and improve the quality of mobile software without wasting time looking for and fixing common software errors.
Mobile App Testing Main types
allows you to determine how fully mobile software fulfills the functional requirements of the ToR;
and updates are required to verify the correct installation of the mobile program and its updates on different devices;
necessary to verify the operation of the mobile application on different devices running different operating systems;
allows you to find out what will be the behavior of a mobile program in the conditions of limitation of disk or RAM due to the use of other programs or non-standard user behavior;
it is necessary to check the operation of the mobile application in the conditions of search and loss of a wireless network, interruption of mobile software by calls and messages, battery drop, sudden disconnection of a SIM card or memory card, etc;
conducted to check the reliability of protection of the user's personal data (including payment system services) from hacking;
it is necessary to check the national versions of mobile software, taking into account the local language, currency, legal requirements and cultural characteristics;
this is testing the use of a mobile program in terms of GUI convenience and user capabilities.
