Mobile application testing is the process of verifying whether an app designed for handheld devices meets certain mobile testing requirements. “Mobile app” refers to three types of software: native apps, mobile web apps, and hybrid apps.
In all software development processes, mobile app testing is a must before an app is released into the marketplace. This step ensures the final product functions properly throughout its customer experience journey.
Mobile testing not only oversees the quality and functionality of the app but also effectively increases user engagement.
Often applied to test UI elements, screen adaptation, core structures, and functions of the app. It also tests the installation and update processes, localization settings, compatibility, and accessibility of the application under test.
Operational testing assesses the AUT’s response to events and changes in certain devices such as power cycling, data cable connection, Wi-Fi connection, and airplane mode status; then compare them with the defined requirements.
Interrupt tests imitate all possible interruptions, such as incoming and outgoing calls/SMS/MMS, pop-up notifications/reminders, etc. They ensure the AUT can handle all interruptions by going into a suspended state and restarting afterward.
