Reveal Critical Issues Before You Go To Market

Just imagine... You spent hours of planning and developing the most innovative app that will delight your customers. It fails! How is that possible? Chances are, you may have missed a crucial phase in the app development lifecycle - testing on real devices.

What is mobile app testing? Mobile application testing is a process by which application software developed for hand held mobile devices is tested for its functionality, usability and consistency. Mobile app testing can be automated (leveraging Selenium or Appium) or manual.

A core challenge for app development and testing teams is making sure mobile apps and websites respond optimally across all digital platforms - smartphones, tablets, wearables, and browsers. When looking at the complete digital landscape, it has become more crucial that DevTest teams perform functional testing as well as real-user condition testing.

A great mobile app testing environment will support functional and user condition testing. It will also allow teams to perform side-by-side testing on multiple devices in real-time. A cloud-based lab should deliver highly secure access to legacy and newly released devices to ensure that you have the best test coverage.

Best Practices for Mobile App Testing

  • Cloud-based Mobile App Testing

    Cloud-based access gives you and your team the ability to run functional tests anytime, from anywhere, which means increasing velocity and releasing better mobile apps.

  • Become Agile and Get Feedback Faster

    Support Your Agile Environment

    Increase test automation coverage and benefit from earlier detection of functional and user experience issues. Extend testing across the entire SDLC – reduce release time from 3 weeks to 2 days.

  • Enterprise Grade Device Maintenance

    Get Enterprise Grade Service

    All devices, whether hosted privately or publicly, are managed in highly secure global data centers located worldwide. Our customers also benefit from dedicated on-boarding and support services.

  • Great Partnerships

    Leverage Existing Tools

    We integrate with the IDEs, test automation frameworks, and other tools you already use to develop apps, including Eclipse, UFT / QTP, Visual Studio, Jenkins, Appium and Selenium.

  • Real-user Mobile Testing
