Mobile App Testing Problems

The process of building and deploying a mobile app can be very tedious and expensive. But all your effort and expenses will be forgotten the moment your end users notice a bug. Or worse still if the application crashes.

Such unexpected problems can be avoided if a proper and robust testing was carried out.

A few factors including a low budget and insufficient execution time which lead to improper testing are highlighted below. 

Device Fragmentation Issues

There is an endless number of variations in the OS and OS versions, browser versions, different screen sizes, etc.

So testing an app till it meets the the specifications of all types and combinations of devices requires a lot of time and efforts.

Small and low budget QA teams may be overwhelmed by such huge tasks and expenses.

Evolving Dynamics & Cloud Device Lab

Cloud device labs are beneficial for mobile app testing in different ways. It allows smooth parallel testing and saves cost, time, and efforts.

The dynamics of the mobile app industry keep changing frequently, with respect to new versions and OS, which can only be tested with the help of a cloud device lab.

It can also be helpful in collaborating with teams that are working remotely. In addition, they can also be accessed at any time of the day.

Increase Speed with Parallel Testing

Keeping in mind the dynamic nature of the mobile app industry, it is important to deliver faster results while ensuring quality. As the OS versions and mobile versions keep upgrading and changing, QA teams need to ensure that an app supports multiple platforms.

To resolve this issue, QA teams need to test an app continuously, until it meets all types and combinations of device variations.

So, with the help of parallel testing in a device lab, QA teams can test an app on a wide range of mobile devices. It boosts the speed of testing and saves time and effort for the testers.

Different Types of Mobile Apps

There are different types of mobile apps such as a native app, web app, or hybrid app. Testing every type of application requires different skills and expertise, as its implementation is also different from one another. 

Just as each app’s behaviour is different from one another in terms of installation and functionality, the testing processes is also different.

Again, this may be too much to handle for a small QA team. 

Conclusion 

Today, more than 90% of young rely on mobile applications for their daily. User expectations towards mobile apps are always on the rise.

Thus, business should involve the service of QA expert. This will ensure that bugs don’t follow the apps to the app stores.
