Mobile Testing
Bridging the Gap in Mobile App Quality

Today, an alarming 65 percent of mobile apps—more than 1.3 million—have a 1-star rating or less. Why? The majority of development organizations have neither the right processes nor access to the devices required to properly test mobile applications. If not addressed, these deficiencies will have a major impact on the quality of the apps the organization develops. In addition, users are intolerant of problems and quick to switch to competing apps. Costa Avradopoulos explores how to address the unique challenges of mobile testing, starting with adopting the right test strategy. Costa describes the top challenge test leaders face today―how to design a proper test lab, given thousands of unique mobile devices. Costa shares insight into choosing the right devices to optimize test coverage and reduce risks. He also shows you how to leverage existing tools and evaluate automation options to keep your team current with the faster pace of mobility.
