Pragmatic Practices to Consider for Mobile App Testing Strategy

Mobile app testing is what evaluates the quality of the app and involves challenges set by different parameters about mobile devices. Depending on the type of device, its OS, network variations and understanding of users, mobile app testing program is conducted. A mobile app must deliver better visual capabilities and high performance without any undesirable interruption and live to consumer’s satisfaction.

Why we need an app testing strategy?

Getting five star ratings from users is not what every app entering the app store achieves. For an app to be most loved and used, it must overcome challenges and delight users in all circumstances. The reason why expectations for mobile app is strict is that users want to get unique experience from using your app and apps that underperform or disappoint them has no place in the competitive market.

It is very easy for users to find even the smallest of flaws in your app as they get deeply involved in inside-the-app journey. A defective or unpleasant app will result in users sharing abysmal reviews that will further smear your market reputation. It will also minimize the chance of retrying your apps.

Also, when you devise a strategy, everything gets streamlined and your approach towards finding solutions and improvements become disciplined, controlled and uniformed.

Pragmatic practices for app testing strategy

To avoid the depressing scenarios of mobile app rejection, the following are the guideline practices to consider to form the viable mobile app testing strategy

Put your tests on actual devices in use

Emulators or simulators are a usual trend when it comes to testing mobile apps. But until the app is tested on actual device, the testing process will remain incomplete. A pragmatic app testing strategy must emphasize testing on real device as it confirms whether or not the look and feel of the app will be appreciated by users.

Run frequent tests

When development process hits a mature stage, it is a time to start testing the app. This will come handy identifying the bugs and errors in the early stage, well before it ends up on the mobile screen of users.

Fix your preferences for device and OS

To include all devices along with different OS while testing is too ideal to achieve. It is almost impossible to consider all kinds of networks and OS platforms for testing purpose. Determine upfront which devices and OS your app will specifically cater to and perform QA on them.

Automate testing tools

Automation testing is making a boom in app testing space. This is because it curbs the time to market and limit the resources and time manual testing often takes. It also gives you the benefit of minimizing human error and generating high ROI. However, it is vital to maintain and monitor the routine automation test suite.

Performance and security check

Testing your app for performance and security makes it strong among users when it finally flies off in app store. Users will cost you a lot if they don’t find your app being secure and performing well. Detect and destroy all vulnerabilities that may arise from integrating third party software.

Check battery consumption, interactive capabilities and run-speed

Apps that load sluggishly or eat more power are more like a predator to your device. You don’t want your battery to get drained soon, or your mobile to heat up because of stubborn app issues. Users won’t tolerate power-hungry apps and those with limited interactive capabilities. It must endure fluctuating network strength.
