Today, with the “Mobile-First” era, the overall quality of your mobile app will undoubtedly affect its sustainability in the market.

Now the question is, how can you build high-quality and mobile-friendly apps with almost “ZERO” bugs that can stand out among others on Google Playstore and Apple Store?

The answer is: Mobile Automation Testing

What Is Mobile Testing?

Mobile testing (also known as mobile app testing) evaluates applications that are being developed for mobile devices. The primary goal of mobile testing is to ensure that the apps are functional, usable, and stable. In today's industry, mobile application testing is critical for a mobile app's survival. To provide the finest possible quality for end-users, we need to test the app for performance, security, and user interface to remove all the errors, bugs, and loopholes that can be exploited illegally.

Importance Of Mobile App Testing

Consider yourself a user who is testing out a new app. If the mobile app takes too long to download, you may abandon it before even using it. You may also opt-out if it works perfectly on Android but has a strange UI on your iOS devices. Also, if the app crashes frequently while in use or consumes a ton of your mobile storage or internet data or battery, you may want to uninstall it. As a result, rigorously testing the app will prevent dangers like these while also increasing app retention.

Types Of Mobile Apps

Native apps
These mobile apps are designed specifically for a platform or operating system (OS). They have the extra benefit of being faster and more reliable in terms of performance, but they are more expensive to maintain because they focus on a single OS.
Web Apps
Web apps are comparable to native apps, with the exception that we may utilise these apps on mobile devices through a web browser. It has modest development costs, but it is entirely reliant on the device's browser.
Hybrid Apps
Such apps are a mix of native and web-based applications. They present the HTML and JavaScript files in a full-screen format using a web view control. These apps are both - very affordable and easy to create.

Types of Mobile App Testing

Functional testing
UI components, screen adaption, fundamental architecture, and app operations are frequently tested with this method. It also examines the application's installation and update methods and its localisation options, compatibility, and accessibility (AUT).
Interrupt testing
Incoming and outgoing calls/SMS/MMS, pop-up notifications/reminders, and other interruptions are all simulated in interrupt tests. They ensure that the AUT can manage all interruptions by suspending them and then restarting them.
Performance testing
Determines how the program reacts to various obstacles, such as low battery power, network outage, and so on. In general, performance testing will assess the speed, stability, and reliability of a system.
Operational testing
Operational testing compares the AUT's responsiveness to events and changes in specific devices, such as power cycling, data cable connection, Wi-Fi connection, and aeroplane mode status, to the established requirements.
Security testing
Ensures that the AUT has complete control over its users' data to avoid dangers such as sensitive data leaks. The data and network security of the AUT will be adequately tested to meet the security criteria during security tests.
Regression testing
We do such testing to check if the most recent updates or patches have introduced any new regressions or issues in the mobile app system. It is done on a regular basis to ensure that new modifications are feature enhancements rather than bugs in the application.

Mobile App Testing v/s Web App Testing

Mobile app testing is not same as the web app testing; in fact, these are absolutely different types of testing and use completely different sets of tools and test environments. Here are the fundamental differences between mobile app and web app testings.

Web App

Testing
We do this testing for software applications that run on mobile devices.
We do Web App Testing specifically for computer-based software applications only.
Mobile applications are made for a broad spectrum of people.
In comparison to mobile applications, web applications are designed for a smaller group of consumers.
Mobile testing becomes problematic at times as mobile storage space is limited for downloading apps and multimedia.
As the storage capacity of a computer or laptop is limitless (much more than a mobile phone), so testing remains smooth.
Since different mobile devices have varied and more significant numbers of functionalities, testing mobile apps is relatively tricky.
Because of the desktop's capability, testing web applications is straightforward.
We surely need to do the performance testing of the app on both fully charged and low-charged devices.
Since there is no battery life issue with a desktop, there is relaxation in such tests.
Mobile testing becomes difficult because of varied screen sizes, OEMs, storage capacity, and a ton of other factors.
In web app testing, such things aren't considered, and the testing goes smooth and generalised for all devices.
Since mobile devices provide a range of possibilities for doing operations, the testing team must concentrate on how they interact with the user's movements, voice and environment, eye movements, etc.
Since the computers provide fewer possibilities for doing operations, the testing team does not require the interaction of web devices with user movement, the direction of user attention, eye movements, and so on.
