Pitfalls Need To Avoid When Testing Mobile Application

In today’s world, Smartphones become an essential part of our lives. our thinking is not possible without Smartphones or mobiles. In the fastest growing technical world, mobile applications have become the soul of almost any business. You don’t have much time to impress your users rather than you have just one second or less to impress your user. Therefore mobile application testing becomes essential to ensure the quality and reliability of the application.

As a Tester, here I am going to introduce some mobile application testing pitfalls you need to avoid. Let’s have a look 🙂

Not able to think like a customer

It is advisable to test an application like an end-user who have no technical knowledge. Sometimes a tester fails to think like a customer. Tester just tests the functionality and another aspect of the application. The tester must think about which functionality will be used the most. He must test whether the different functionalities seamlessly integrate with each other or not.

Infrequent regression testing

Regression testing verifies the application, which was previously developed and tested, still performs correctly or not. Regression tests are important to show you bottlenecks so you can uncover the bugs in your code. One of the best ways to make sure you are conducting regression tests regularly.

Testing on emulator

Testers can sometimes favor emulator testing too heavily when testing mobile applications. While emulators are useful in identifying issues early in the development but in the later stages needs to be done on actual devices. Teasing on the real device gives the tester a feel of real user interactions, factors like battery consumption, overall performance and other interruptions like notification and other things. Hence it is advisable to use the real device while testing the final application.

Failing to find areas for continuous improvement

Testers must use some metrics because it is the best way of pointing out areas that are working well and those that need some improvement. Metrics like response time, average session time and retention rate give important insights of the application. Other than this It is also an important task to collect data on how the application is performing in real-time.

Avoid test Automation

Nothing can replace the manual testing but it is advisable to use automated testing when it comes to testing repetitive, complex or lengthy test cases for the application. In the repetitive and complex testing an experienced tester may fail but the automated tool never. I said never 🙂

Testing front end too late and in isolation

Typically, the front end of the application is typically not built until after the back-end is ready. Therefore front-end testing gets squeezed. Even though the front end of the application isn’t built yet, you can still simulate your front end by building test cases that interface directly with the back end. Therefore, if you want the best result then build test scenarios that use web services and an API to test performance earlier in the process.
