Mobile App Revolution Demands Mobile Testing Evolution


The top two operating systems that are leading and setting up the market standard for  mobile application development and mobile application testing are: 

  • IOS (iPhone Operating System) 
  • Android  

The (IOS/Android) applications have seen a revolution over some past years, and mobile testing now requires an extensive evaluation. A company should have strong mobile testing criteria to overcome the common challenges if it develops mobile applications.

Mobile App Testing

Not all the applications run in the same pattern, so there are some variations of mobile testing depending on the platforms. These can be categorized as follows: 

  • Native Applications: Applications built for particular platforms, e.g., iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry. 
  • Mobile Web Applications: Web applications launched on mobile browsers. 
  • Hybrid applications: A blend of mobile web and native applications. 

Based on the classifications mentioned above, one can imagine that app development, including mobile app testing, is far more complex than it initially seems. Moreover, as mobile devices become more common, user expectations for high-performing mobile applications continue to increase. The primary purpose of building mobile business applications is to run the business with proficiencies and get output without failure. Mobile application testing is the key to achieving these goals.

Mobile Performance Testing

To measure the performance of an application, you need the three main components that are connected: the phone device, the server, and the Network that is being used to connect the mobile device with the server. Additionally, a few more components can negatively affect application performance, e.g., startup speed, battery life, memory consumption, etc.

Performance means the user’s perception of how well the mobile application performs to complete a specific function. To manage user performance expectations, developers must consider core mobile application design considerations such as the amount of data, API calls, screen transitions, background threads, and computation power. Moreover, architects must understand how apps interact with networks and network properties. Network speed, packet loss, and jitters are familiar mobile app issues one should analyze and test to ensure mobile performance.

Who will test it, and how can it be done?

For testing Android, IOS, or Blackberry, you need an SQA engineer with some automated testing experience to fast-track the mobile application testing process. You would follow the below-mentioned steps for a successful testing phase: 

  • Agile development: You should follow the agile process to maximize the release pace. 
  • Devices: You need to test the mobile apps on multiple devices to ensure quality. 
  • End-to-end verification: You must ensure the app executes business processes as planned. 
  • Automation: You are required to automate sanity checks and test API calls to ensure overall system reliability. 
  • Load testing: Load and stress testing on back-end systems must ensure healthy support for the expected traffic loads.  
  • Robust test suites: Testing is needed to ensure accurate PDF and Office file format processing.
