Testing Mobile apps is not a Formality; it’s an Obligation of Software Testing Companies:

by Rock Den Software Testing Services

Most of the companies do not pay heed towards quality assurance of mobile application it’s a notion. As far as I have experienced that it depends on the project managers who are managing these mobile application testing projects.  They are just emphasizing on getting more and more testing projects and in this endeavor losing the quality that is promised while getting projects.

The incompetent QA professional who are not experienced in testing is employed for automation testing of mobile app that is a risk and nothing else.  The mindset that is working behind all these practices is majority of the mop bile apps works and if not then defects is a normal practice, not a big deal.

Another reason is that majority of the mobile apps are not tested on different platforms and environments in which they are supposed to be deployed, usability testing and beta testing of mobile app is ignored hence restricting the scope of testing.  Organizations do not focus on performance testing of mobile apps.

"Where it is challenging to replicate conditions mobile application users are likely to experience in the field," said Matt Johnston, chief marketing officer for test service provider uTest Inc.

The world Quality report demonstrate 2012-2013 Only 31% of more than 1,500 global organizations surveyed conduct formal testing for mobile applications, and the remaining one fails to meet the mobile   application challenges  and lacks the resources and tools required for testing.

The author of this report Murat Aksu and Charlie Li mention their remarks in executive summary.

"We believe that mobile testing needs to be a fully integrated element of the QA [quality assurance] discipline, so that the mobile strategy of the enterprise takes testing into account right from the start."

Test case strategy plays a very vital role in mobile application testing.  The test cases should be according to business requirements as these are the crucial for business processes and transactions.  For performance testing, limited lab testing does not make a mobile app user friendly, in this context Johnston said. "You need to place testers in the field, not just the lab."

So mobile app testing is challenging for testing organization. Testing is a liability on their part to make it bug free that can contribute to its commercial success.  The selection of right tools and drafting of test cases according to business requirements and allocation of right resources (QAs) leads to responsible mobile app testing this is the need of the hour.
