It is imperative to have a clear vision for your app that supports your business logic. But, finalizing the development phase of a mobile app requires multiple rounds of cross-checking. After you have implemented the features and functionality, there comes a crucial part of quality assurance (QA).
It is app testing, which ensures that the features are accurately working when subjected to various scenarios. QA testing involves feature functionality, multiple network compatibility, storage, application flow, GUI, database, and cross-platform measurement. Without following these steps thoroughly during the testing process, there could be ramifications on the part of the end-user experience.
At Think Future Technologies, we have curated a team of QA team experts who can craft your app vision with such precision and standard that is well above the industry standard. We make your mobile app hack-proof and glitch-free by adhering to a range of strategic app testing methods. Here you can learn about the mobile app testing strategies that Think Future Technologies follows.
As the name suggests, this testing process is done manually by a QA analyst. While testing, the analyst performs a manual check across the app’s entire architecture and tries to find out any errors made during the development process. The analyst sets certain test conditions, also known as test cases, for the mobile application to achieve this.
After the test cases are successfully executed without automated tools, the analyst creates a report on the app. The range of manual testing services that Think Future Technologies offer includes black and white box testing, integrated or unit testing, and multi-platform compatibility testing.
Compared to iOS, manual testing for an Android app has a better possibility of discovering bugs. There are some drawbacks to this process. A large quantity of app testing is not suitable for manual testing. Moreover, specific tasks are difficult to perform manually. However, the flexibility and cost-efficiency that manual testing offers for short term projects allow for a strategic solution.
Automation testing is an excellent alternative to manual app testing. This process compares the app’s expected and actual outcomes by running tests that repeat predefined actions. To run these actions, analysts use automated tools. Thus, analysts can also avoid the drudgery of repetitive manual testing.
Initially, it may require some time to set up the automated test cases. But, as the test conditions are organized, it consumes less time to run repeated case scenarios. A broad array of services like regression, load, and web testings are performed in automation testing. Additionally, via this method, businesses can also choose to deploy keyword and data-driven testing.
Automation testing can help you maintain a steady developmental timeline if you have a large number of tasks. While publishing your app on a popular platform like Android, you can benefit from the quick app review done by automation testing. In comparison to manual testing, this process can be cost-effective for long-term app projects.
Besides testing via manual and automated mode, at Think Future Technologies, the team’s QA routine includes strategic performance testing on the mobile app. This crucial process aims to measure, validate, and verify the operational capabilities of an application to see if it aligns with the expected system performance.
There is a range of tests in this process that help the analyst benchmark the overall system in terms of the response time, speed of the APIs, and the usage of the CPU, and memory. The tester generates variable synthetic load conditions to measure these performance parameters. The segment of stress testing allows the analyst to get a report on the power and stability of the application.
In performance testing, the testers also perform volume and scalability testing. While volume testing helps determine the number of users that the app can accommodate, scalability testing allows us to measure the app’s processing capacity when more resources are applied. After executing these services appropriately, the source code of the app can be reviewed for optimization.
TFT’s mobile app functional testing is a strategic method of verifying the system strictly from a practical aspect before finalizing the release. Through this process, the broken functions are detected, and the necessary resources are incorporated into the app. Thus, with functional testing, clients can get a validated application that works appropriately for the users.
The team at TFT runs various functional testing on the app. With smoke testing, the QA analyst verifies the app’s build and ensures that the most significant functions work as expected. In a user acceptance testing, also known as beta testing, the team works to structure an acceptance criteria. Following that criteria, a new feature or function is approved for the app.
This process involves a sort of collaboration between the stakeholders, the technicians, and the end-user.
Interface and usability testing are other parts of the functional testing that allows us to detect flaws in the UI and design language and make altercations. The client may provide input to the QA analysts for improvement in the UI experience. These functional testing services certify that there is no flaw in the steps that the user may need to navigate in the app.
Without security and penetration testing, an app can fall prey to data breach and unauthorized access subjecting the entire business to various perils. At TFT, the team of cybersecurity experts ensures that your app leaves no security issue. To find any flaw in the app, security engineers run vulnerability assessment & penetration testing (VAPT).
Moreover, the application is analyzed using proprietary security testing tools to identify further security issues. Both the app logic layer and the server-side layer are examined in the process. By simulating attacks on the app, engineers perform penetration testing. These security tests certify the protection of the clients and their stakeholders.
Following these testing strategies, the analysts at TFT document the results precisely to understand the problem better and apply the required elements. The dedication of TFT can undoubtedly ensure a glitch-free user experience for any mobile application.
