by Tanzanite Infotech Mobile Apps Developers


The inception of Smartphones and the increasing popularity of mobile applications have created huge opportunities for software companies in the field of mobile application development  company however, the biggest challenge faced by most companies is releasing stable apps in the market that promise to offer superior performance and can be used with ease and comfort. Most often, organizations overlook malfunctions, small glitches as well as crashes to remain a strong contender in the market. Overcoming these drawbacks is only possible through mobile applications testing which ensures that apps released are stable and capable of performing to the optimum level.

Why Mobile Application Testing is Necessary

Presently, there are thousands of mobile applications available in the market and organizations need to make sure that apps released by them are of high quality so as to be a tough competitor in the market. Companies are nowadays required to test applications across different platforms like iOS, Android, etc. as well as different carriers, browsers and locations. Quality testing procedures not only ensure that applications perform the best without facing hiccups but, also help save time and money.

How Mobile Testing is affected by Platform Differences

Today, developers are more concerned about developing applications that can work across multiple platforms. Though, the differences are hardly observed by an end user but, when it comes to development and testing, small differences can lead to big challenges. The best way to deal with such concerns is to make use of tool for testing that helps in leveraging common data model aimed towards mapping of equivalent user interface elements from various mobile platforms. Such an approach is helpful for iPhone application developers as the same script can be used testing Android applications without changes in object or script.

The primary benefits of making use of cross platform mobile applications network is reduced cost, easy deployment and reusability of code. Common data model proves efficient for mobile application testing across different platforms by preventing testing re-work.

Mobile Application Testing Challenges

Even though, it is believed by experts that Smartphones will soon take over desktop and PCs but, implementation and development of mobile applications definitely pose some challenges. Be it Android app development or iOS app development or Windows app development, the major challenge comes in the form of mobile devices multiplicity with various capabilities, restrictions and features. Devices introduced every now and then come available with different technical abilities like screen resolution, available memory, display size and screen orientation, network connectivity options and more. Thus, testers are faced with different challenges to make sure that all these things are taken care of to provide the users with an easy-to-use, feature rich and well performing app. Platform testing is also complex and challenging as there are several operating systems available these days like Android, iOS, Symbian, Windows, palm OS, Blackberry and more. Unlike, the development of an application for a Smartphone, the testing phase generally requires a lot more time. People quite often fail to understand the need for thorough and complete testing before introducing the applications in the market.
