App Testing

App testing

The app market has witnessed a phenomenal growth in the past few years with over 7 billion apps downloaded in 2015.

Our app testing services are based on three key principles. Functionality, usability and consistency. Mobile app testing can be automated or manual. All our tests and services are performed inline with the App Quality Alliance (AQuA)*.

Our testing services ensures your app functions in real world situations. So we always test on a range of real devices not simulators, fingers and thumbs on touchscreens are very different to simulated mouse clicks.

The choice of devices is growing, bringing with it a range of screen sizes, resolutions and processing power. The number of devices you would need for app testing in the current market would be just over 120 devices. That’s one large mobile contract and one lucky mobile phone provider!

With 4G networks now available in most towns and cities, connectivity is changing and so does your fluctuating Internet signal, just ask Kevin Bacon from the latest EE adverts, nobody likes a buffer face. Some conditions cannot be easily replicated inside of testing laboratory, so if your app is designed to be used on the go, it must be tested everywhere in every situation.

Not everyone regularly updates their operating system or they apps. Some users might not even have access to the newest version. How does your app behave on an older operating system?

As they say the devil is in the details and by testing your app in real world conditions, will help your app achieve its goals.
