So, listen up, here’s where you’ll want an experienced testing partner to concentrate their efforts.
These tests focus on user-centered interaction and are performed from the user’s point of view. Elements typically considered are ease-of-use, aesthetics and speed.
Test cases here emphasize whether an app can do what it’s built to do. User commands, data manipulation, searches, business processes and integrations are most often involved.
Sometimes referred to as rendering testing, works to validate the app across a breadth of mobile devices, OS’s and OS versions, screen sizes and resolutions.
The point here is to determine how well an app actually performs. This testing area evaluates factors like server connection changes (2G to 3G and back), shared image sizes, battery consumption, memory leaks, and device resources (think cameras and GPS).
Ensuring your app is accessible and effective for users with vision loss, hearing loss, motor control loss, and even information processing challenges is essential. Be sure to test for Section 508 Compliance.
Since data almost always gets pulled from various sources, extracting the appropriate data can be a complicated process. Data testing makes sure that the data surfaced aligns with what the app is looking for.
