Learn how to scale UI test automation with Tricentis Testim, and uncover ways to address typical testing issues in this webinar.
We love our mobile phones. We take pictures, text friends, and sometimes even use them to make a phone call. For many of us, a mobile phone is about the apps. Apps help us stay connected, inform us, and make our work easier.
Yet according to one study, users uninstall 49% of apps within the first 30 days of installation. Why? There are many reasons, including the app being too spammy, taking up too much storage space, or the user just didn’t need it anymore. In another study, 62% of responders said they would uninstall an app if it freezes, crashes, or has other errors. If your mobile app is the interface to your company, adequate testing can mean the difference between retaining or losing a customer.
Compared to browser-based tests, mobile UI testing poses additional challenges. Unlike browsers, phones and tablets and their operating systems can vary significantly in size, performance, operating system versions, and more. To test mobile apps adequately, Agile development teams must verify that the features perform as expected across the most popular configurations.
Mobile devices are also expensive. To safeguard them, many QA teams have asset control systems requiring check-out/in. Testing from remote locations can require shipping the physical device to testers, which incurs costs and delays. For efficient testing, quality-focused teams need ready access to physical and virtual devices.
And finally, authoring a mobile test on a physical device has historically required scripted or coded tests and specialized skills. QA teams need easier ways of composing and maintaining tests that don’t depend on scarce coding resources.
Tricentis Testim historically focused on UI testing for applications accessed through a browser, whether on a laptop or mobile device. We are delighted to announce support for testing native iOS and Android applications from the same platform Agile organizations use to test their web applications. Here are some of the notable features we’ve released, and it’s only the beginning!
