Mobile Testing Progress of Mobile App Testing Companies
Mobile users want their applications to have friendly interface and, as a consequence, to be easy to use. If a software company fails to meet these expectations, the user does not think twice before choosing a program from another manufacturer – the decision is easy to make because today’s IT market is characterized by abundance of software products offerings for any taste and budget…
Accordingly, app developers work up a sweat to please their customers and never stop improving quality of their software. However, it is hardly possible to create a defect-free application despite the talent, vocation, expertise, experience, skills, etc. of the creator. To protect themselves from post-release failures, software developers work in harness with mobile app testing companies.
Usability testing of mobile apps should be performed in the first instance. This is one of the most important testing types because in a competitive climate, software usability is one of the most important quality factors determining the product’s success. In this testing, it becomes possible to evaluate the ease with which the design is used. This testing is conducted by the app’s target audience who is assigned to perform the tasks for measuring the usability.
Moreover, mobile apps are to be subjected to load testing – the process of monitoring memory usage and system resources; besides, this kind of verification allows to identify and eliminate potential performance bottlenecks in an application.
Mobile testing companies use innovative tools and methods to make manual & automated application testing easier.
Fuzzy testing also known as “monkey” testing involves verifying whether an app correctly responds to occurrence of random or unpredictable events. It often happens that chaotic useless information is received on most mobile devices (for example, unblocked device in the pocket), therefore a mobile app must adequately respond to similar flow of data.
Multi-platform and cross-device testing is done to understand if an application can appropriately work on all possible mobile devices. Due to mobile platform fragmentation, it becomes important yet complicated to test all handheld devices having different versions of a single OS and different screen resolutions along with hardware support.
Penetration testing companies are successful in identifying vulnerabilities in IT infrastructure which can cause private information to leak from a computer or a network. The organizations offer measures on security improvement and attack surface reduction.
