Over the years, the number of mobile apps have grown rapidly, inundating users with a colossal number of apps. Quality is the key to the success of the app, and this can only be achieved through mobile application testing.
The success or failure of an app can be measured by the number of user downloads, positive reviews, and the continuous inclusion of new features to keep users engaged, as well as dealing with quick bug fixes.
Users associate experiences with mobile platforms based on their overall brand experience. An app that presents defects and bugs is likely to lose you customers, as well as brand reputation. Dissatisfied users will post negative reviews on social media platforms, or switch to one of the many alterative apps available, which could result in a short life cycle for your app.
Mobile application testing allows you to deliver the best quality app to your users by continuously testing its functionality, usability, and consistency, ultimately leading to a growth in your user base.
Biggest challenges faced by Mobile App Developers
One of the biggest challenges faced by mobile app developers is the vast number of mobile devices in circulation. The devices have different sizes, shapes, software systems, operating systems, hardware, and more. In addition to testing different types of phones, it is important to consider speed, security, privacy, and other factors when conducting mobile app testing.
The best way to achieve this is to conduct mobile app testing on a range of devices, continuously engage users by introducing new features, and fix any bugs or functionality issues within short intervals, so that users do not lose interest and move on to a competitor’s product.
Another point of testing should be to check how the app functions when there is a change in the mobile network, or when the mobile device is being used overseas on a roaming network. The app should ideally be able to function normally online, offline, or when signals are very weak.
