5 strategic steps to adapt functional testing to mobile apps

5 strategic steps mobile testing.pngMobile apps are coming at us at a fast and furious pace. Often times, this pace leaves testing in the dust.

 

Luckily HP has a great way to test mobile applications. With the power of Unified Functional Testing, you can now keep up. Keep reading to find out the five steps you should take to maximize the functional testing of your mobile apps.

Mobile Testing – Mobile Apps can do almost anything – but can you test them?

Mobile applications are everywhere.  You see them being used on planes, trains and automobiles.   I’m sure that many of you received new mobile devices as gifts for the holidays and are busy playing Angry Birds or Words with Friends.   The power and flexibility of mobile applications to change business processes and implement innovative solutions is amazing.   I recently downloaded an app that lets me measure my heart rate with my phone!  It’s not surprising that mobile is taking off.

 

But, what does that mean for the QA teams that are responsible for testing mobile applications?  They face a number new challenges that mobile devices introduce.

Delivering better mobile performance

As we continue Mobile Month and we’re continuing to share insight, innovation and solutions to help you address your mobile challenges.   Mobile performance is one of those areas.  You are either willing to that there might be a problem, or are proactive about ensuring that our mobile users have the best possible experience.  I’ve seen research that indicates that users expect their mobile devices to perform more or less as fast as their PC.    So, if you’re taking the chance that performance will be OK, then that might be a pretty big gamble.    

 

Today, we have two guest bloggers – Mark Tomlinson and Esther Levine, from Shunra who are sharing their insight and perspective about how to deliver better mobile performance

 

Also, we're very interested in hearing from you... about your experience with mobile testing.  If you have a few minutes, please share your perspective in our BRIEF Mobile Research survey.

Mobile Performance Testing and the 'Update Surge’

Have you encountered performance challenges with mobile applications?  

 

In many situations, the only ‘performance’ problem I have is a bad signal or no signal at all.  Don’t worry - I’m not going to talk about mobile carriers and which is better, but I am going to talk about performance and load testing of mobile applications.  In fact, I learned about an interesting load testing scenario that you need to consider in when testing your mobile applications.
