The Challenges of Testing a Wearable Banking Application
In many ways, the rapidly evolving mobile banking application industry is challenging for testers. Adding a wearable device brings new challenges, new user behaviors, and untested devices. To ensure a well-tested product, what changes and adaptations do you need to make to your test approach? Carl Johnson shares his hands-on experiences going from testing a mobile banking application to testing a wearable “watch-bank,” an application that makes it possible for customers to see balances and transactions on their smartwatches. Carl presents examples of his learnings—tools that could help you simulate the use of a token-based login method, the invaluable assistance of beta testers using the real world as their test environment, and possible security threats that need testing in order to secure sensible information. Carl concludes with the most important learnings and experiences put together in a framework you can use as a guide if you are involved in a similar project.
