Automated Mobile Application Testing: Why Is It Crucial for Mobile Applications?

Understanding Automated Mobile Application Testing

A comprehensive understanding of mobile applications put for testing is an added advantage. It is important to check whether it is developed in-house or by the third party. In case of in-house application, mobile application testing should be carried out concurrently during the development process. For third-party applications, a comprehensive evaluation of structure, function, update frequency, security, stress, and support options is obligatory.

Mobile application testing is mandatory to inspect all device feature requirements for Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, games, etc. Their accessibility, performance, and security perspective must be evidently recognized and legitimate. The focus should continue to be on what type of platforms the application is designed for, who is the targeted audience, and what are high-risk areas.

Types of Mobile Application Testing

  • Functional Testing: Mobile application testing scrutinizes functionality of the software and its integration with the device, OS platforms, and technology. It looks into the compatibility issues, anticipated functional results, and capability to offer users a gratifying experience.
     
  • Performance Testing: Mobile application testing is carried out to recognize issues linked with display, speed, network, and stress, graphical interface, power utilization, etc., that impact performance. All limitations are outlined, and developments are marked.
     
  • Crash-Free Testing: This facilitates to validate the stability of the application and knack to take the load. Experts in the testing domain also test if it impacts other applications leading to the bad user experience.
     
  • Usability Testing: If we talk from a consumer's viewpoint, mobile application testing validates if it is easy to cognize and use the application, provides a good experience, how it varies from other applications in the market, and whether it meets the OS requirements designed for.
     
  • Security Testing: The penetration, as well as firewall issues, are organized to confirm that no one can access information on your device while using a specific application.
     
  • Peer Testing: This testing is conducted in a real-time environment and peers involved in the project are challenged to find out hitches.

Automated Mobile Application Testing: Key Challenges

  • Platform Diversity: The ever-growing diversity of mobiles in shape, hardware, screen size, and operating system calls for mobile application testing incisive skills and proficiency. An application must be extensively tested for its compatibility and immaculate functionality on all platforms.
     
  • Quick Technological Variations: The fast-changing mobile technology poses a challenge for mobile application testing. The older the technology is, the more rapidly it is becoming obsolete, and new platforms are introduced by competing with manufacturers rapidly.
     
  • Cost vs. Skill: Increasing competition in the market calls for low cost and high quality automated mobile application testing services. Balancing cost with the challenging skill and technical requirements call for intellect on the part of testing companies.

Conclusion

It is important to perform automated testing on various devices like mobile browsers, operating systems to provide efficient and effective automation to confirm compatibility of an application without the need of writing recurrent codes.
