Mobile Testing: Challenges and Solutions

Add to calendar

Now that we’ve gotten beyond the initial shock and prevalence of mobile applications, we’ve come to realize that it’s not just about making apps work. In chasing the mobile market, we often don’t really understand or choose to ignore the differences in the mobile platform when it comes to designing and building a successful app. Of course, the mobile platform is smaller, but what else do you need to consider? To be successful, you need more than just “it works.” Phil Lew explores the top mobile quality challenges, and discusses how to approach and solve them. Some of these challenges include platform proliferation, internationalization, usability, when—and when not—to automate, and how to handle the segmented performance issues with device, network, and server. Phil outlines the different approaches for getting the most bang for your buck in the platforms you test and the tools you use. Make sure your application works, is loved by your users, and keeps them coming back.
