"BugEspy successfully researched, designed, and implemented the testing automation for our platform. They consistently demonstrated technical depth, timeliness, and willingness to go the extra mile. We thank them for a project well completed and look forward to working with them again in the future."
"The final product’s quality was improved greatly and is now stable. The team communicated effectively, with daily check-in calls. They are professional and customer service oriented, with the co-founder occasionally jumping in the project to make sure all ran smoothly."
“We couldn’t be more grateful to BugEspy Quality Assurance team for the job they did. They joined us at the very start of the project. Now, our application is released, but we continue our partnership with Hamza and his team to check any design changes, validate new projects, and provide ongoing testing."
"BugEspy was in charge of setting up our entire QA organization. This included developing a framework for our manual testing efforts and setting up automated testing via Selenium Automation Framework. This was a complex exercise that required autonomy and independent decision making, and BugEspy excelled at that."
What is Mobile Application Testing?
By standard definition, Mobile Application Testing is a technique by which mobile applications are tested and is used to assess the required quality, characteristics, compatibility, functionality, usability, performance and all other main features of that application.
How to Test a Mobile Application:
In this article we will discuss all the detailed knowledge about the techniques used for mobile app testing, with all the strategies and main stages behind the process of mobile app testing.
With the gradual advancement in the field of smartphone technology, businesses are now finding new opportunities in mobile applications for scaling their business. All the mainstream businesses are now shifting towards mobile apps and they are millions in number now.
The fact is that there are just a few applications that have been successful in earning their mark and rule in the world of mobile applications. In such a competitive market, you have to make sure that you are offering a completely reliable and glitches free experience to your app users.
Mobile Application Categories
There is another essential component in the process of testing a mobile application that is, the type of application at hand. The types of mobile apps play a significant role in defining the testing process. Mobile apps are classified into three types:
Native apps are the applications that are developed for a single platform like Tizen, Android, Windows 10 Mobile, iOS, BlackBerry.
Mobile Web Application:
The main feature in a mobile web application is that it’s a website that can be opened in a mobile or tablet via a smartphone browser.
These applications are a mixture of both Mobile Apps and Native Apps described as the content of mobile web exposition in an application’s format.
Cloud-Based testing assists app testing to eliminate the drawbacks of the real devices and simulators.
It is favorable to test a mobile app with the help of Cloud-Based tools.
Advantages of this strategy:
Manual Testing Vs Automated Testing
Some app testers support Manual Testing while some consider Automation Testing to be better. But, in fact both Manual and Automation testing have equal importance and their implementation vary from case to case.
In today’s world several experts recommend that manual testing is moving towards its death. It’s not true as we could not replace all types of testing with Automated Testing. While in some conditions manual testing is essentially preferred.
Documentation testing plays a leading role in the preparatory stage of mobile application testing. The process of testing begins even before the process of software development.
2.) Functional Testing:
It assists in testing the functional capabilities of your mobile app, serves according to your expectations and specifications. You should keep these factors under your notice while performing Functional Testing for your application:
