For any mobile application developer want to produce top quality mobile application , application testing is essential part of application development process.
Here are the essential points to be take into account :
Initial Beta User release
After designing and developing mobile application you will need to be tested by the eager mobile users(early technology adapters). This simply requires the early beta release & test it by fully using the application for the practical everyday use. Users at this testing stage should be asked to give feedback on the complete user experience and record any error they discover.
Basic navigation user testing may bring awareness to navigation problems, computer based application testing is the most accurate way of checking full application navigation.This process will check all menus are working and will find the break links in the application(checks internal and external links are accurate).
Check for Hidden Defects
If application works well with general usage but still there could be some hidden errors or defects that could cause performance issue or causes system crash.
These errors can be found by testing hardware and software with using professional testing tools.
Many android and iphone applications relay on internet connection for various functionality. Monitoring how application works in various conditions of low internet connectivity or low mobile signal is a very important stage in mobile application testing and it will help in finding any error and corrected it before release.
Test system and Negative usage
By performing application tests a developer can accurately determine how your application function in various conditions. Testing the applications to critical systems changes such as low battery or low memory also putting the system changes such as virus attacks.
