6 Major Aspects That You Need To Check While Performing Mobile App Testing


Statista reports that there are more than 5 million mobile apps available on the app stores. We can easily say that there are apps for every need, with the number of available mobile apps growing each day. There are still many innovative ideas.

While it’s impossible to predict the success of an app or app idea, you can ensure its usability and performance, which will increase your chances of your app being successful.

But how? It is easy to ensure that your solution is bug-free, high-performing, and error-free if you use the right testing methods. This checklist was created by our expert mobile app testers and will assist you in creating a high-quality product that delivers amazing user experiences.

Here are six things that you need to check while performing mobile app testing – 

  1. Performance of App

Application developers often overlook Mobile App Testing services. Mobile development teams must adhere to strict timelines, so testing an app’s performance is not a priority.

They believe that passing functional tests is enough to meet all the basic criteria for launching an app. This statement is the most common mistake app owners make.

The first thing that will influence the decision of the user to keep or uninstall your app is its performance. Poor app experience directly impacts revenue. This clearly demonstrates the importance of app performance testing.

When you’re done developing your app, make sure you measure its performance in terms of device, server/API, and network performance.

  1. Mobile Application Testing

Performance testing focuses on both the functional domain and the back-end application. Performance testing includes energy consumption, GPS, battery life, memory usage, bandwidth usage, and whether the application can withstand excessive load. Product owners can quantify the framework’s performance when users use the app more or perform more actions. The testers will be able to determine the response time and resource consumption at peak times of the application. 

The performance testing of mobile apps will also ensure that the app works as expected, regardless of whether it is using low CPU utilization or very little storage. Performance mobile app testing will allow app developers to set the limits for the app’s performance. You can also predict and prevent system crashes.

  1. App’s functionality

Because it serves many purposes, functionality testing of mobile apps is essential. This type of testing ensures that the app works as intended. It ensures that all requirements and design specifications are met.

Functionality testing is a way to ensure your app works well from the end-user’s point of view. Mobile devices have many hardware features, such as storage, camera, screen, and sensors such as accelerometer, geolocation touch sensor, or ambient light. Each one must be tested under different conditions.

There are also a variety of interpretation scenarios that can be used to interpret messages, calls, or other notifications while the app is running. Functionality mobile app testing’s main purpose is to identify potential errors and other problems that could arise in the event of an interruption.

  1. App Usability

Developers in the mobile app development industry must provide more value and quality to their users. Simply testing apps for functionality and performance is not enough.

This must be done in advance to ensure that the mobile app is intuitive, responsive, and engaging enough for users to use and satisfy their needs.

As you can see, usability testing for mobile apps helps developers identify and implement changes that are crucial to usability.

This includes addressing product users’ needs and fixing the quality of the mobile app so that they can provide a complete solution that meets client requirements well, communicates with them in a way that is understandable, and creates a connection with them to their level of delight.

A/B testing can be used to gain full insight into how users use your application. This is where you send two different versions of your application to the same group of end-users to see which one performs best.

Analyzing the user’s behavior can help one modify components and features in a way that appeals to the target audience. This can also be used to guide advertisers in making growth-oriented strategic decisions.

  1. App Security

Security testing has become a crucial part of modern digitalization. An insecure but functional application can lead to severe consequences. 

Access security is a key component of security testing. It must be considered first to ensure the safety of your business as well as your clients. It includes authorization and authentication. It allows you to decide who has access and how much.

This helps to ensure that your data is secure from both internal and external breaches. A tester with a good knowledge of the subject is a great choice. A tester who is skilled in the job will create multiple user accounts.

After you have completed accessibility testing, make sure you test the data protection of your app. To ensure data security, you must use legitimate security testing methods. To find vulnerabilities, it is important first to test.

A mobile app tester who is an expert can test the database for critical information such as user accounts, billing, passwords, and other data. Document transfers and payments are also functions that need testing. These functions also require extensive testing.

  1. App Compatibility

While usability testing considers the appearance, feel, and convenience of the application, compatibility testing is focused on whether the hardware and the software can work together to allow it to function properly.

Mobile Compatibility Testing will verify that your application works on the various mobile devices and browsers that users use to access it.

Research shows that there are many issues with compatibility that can affect the user experience.

Your mobile app compatibility testing method should be flexible and tailored to each case. It would be best to choose the right tools/methods depending on the particular situation. It is also good to modify your process according to the functional testing situation.
