Mobile Application Testing Services
As iPhones and Android smartphones now dominate the market, Microsoft hasn’t given up with Windows 10 Mobile. Because you no longer need an app that just works, mobile app testing has come to demand highly specialized expertise. Ensure your mobile apps work properly through our wide offering of expert XBOSoft mobile application testing types.
The ecosystem of mobile devices is a diverse array of hardware, software, and network configurations. These are complex and in constant flux with new mobile devices, browsers, and operating system versions being released at every turn of the calendar. This presents unique challenges from a mobile application testing strategy perspective. There is no comprehensive mobile test tool or one stop mobile test. Instead, a broad portfolio of testing services, and test process with tools, some specific to mobile and others generic to QA, must be utilized to effectively address mobile testing.
Our Mobile Application Testing Services include:
- Automated Testing: Mobile Test Automation, when applied in the right places to mobile testing can increase your efficiencies enabling you to focus your manual testing on new features and functions. Our specialization in using Appium provides you with expert services on an open source platform that works across multiple operating systems.
- Functional Testing: Test cases strategically designed for mobile applications for reducing risk with the highest coverage. Functional testing goes hand in hand with mobile test automation.
- Game Testing: QA services specifically for mobile games to identify crash, performance, hangs and gameplay issues before your gamers do.
- Localization Testing: Test mobile apps via localization testing to ensure that your mobile app is ready to go global. Don’t wait to find out your app renders off the screen or your buttons and text are misplaced.
- Performance Testing: It can be a real challenge to kick start a mobile performance testing program, and then maintain it moving forward. Knowing “why you want to do performance testing” is easy, but determining “what user scenarios you’d like to test” or “what your user distribution is” can present real hurdles to overcome. Mobile performance testing must be done in a process-oriented way within a solid testing environment and structured testing process to effectively achieve your objectives. Mobile performance testing done right will help to identify bottlenecks and peak load limits in both the mobile devices and associated servers.
- Platform Compatibility Testing: Supporting multiple mobile devices and platforms can be a headache. Access our mobile lab with hundreds of mobile devices and emulators. Discover compatibility issues before it’s too late. Take advantage of our expertise in knowing when to use real devices, emulators, and device farms to discover early in the testing process, compatibility issues before it’s too late.
- Security Testing: Our security experts penetrate and identify your mobile app’s vulnerabilities before someone else does. One popular (and false) myth about security testing is that there is no return on investment (ROI) in security testing, which is why not every company is prepared to do it. However, security testing can point out where your applications can be improved in order to improve efficiency, reduce downtime and enable maximum throughput. A good start is the OWASP Top 10 for mobile security, a standard awareness document for developers and mobile application security. It represents a broad consensus about the most critical security risks to mobile applications.
- Usability Testing: Users have little patience for poorly designed mobile apps: Recent data shows that 80 percent of customers delete appsthat don’t meet expectations. UX forms the core of these expectations and their outcome. Simply put, it’s everything that happens when users interact with your applications. This includes how apps look, how they perform, if features and services work like they’re supposed to, and how long the app takes to load content. Application User Experience UX testing is designed to measure both specific outcomes and user impressions to deliver valuable feedback about your application before it goes live. When done properly, it should be a core element of the design process and also the development process.
- Appium: Automation is not for all devices nor for all applications, but when you do automate testing for your mobile applications, Appium has become one of the leaders. Appium testing is an open-source test framework that covers the automation testing across all three types of mobile applications, native, web, and hybrid. It is also cross platform and can reuse code between iOS, Android, and Windows test suites with the same API.However, as with many open source tools, getting started is not that easy. Directions and documentation on the ‘official’ site are not very clear and installing is one thing, but actually using it for real script writing requires a little help. To learn more about how to get started using Appium, check out our Appium tutorial white paper.
- Mobile Application Testing Strategy: A general framework for mobile application QA should be considered when developing an overall mobile application testing strategy and approach to meet immediate and future needs in this dynamic environment. Critical dimensions in a mobile QA strategy include functional testing, testing tools, platform compatibility (OS/mobile devices), Network, Performance testing, test automation, and Usability and User Experience testing.
