Quality Assurance Process for Mobile Applications
Quality assurance testing is one of the most important components of mobile application development. It is an integral part of project execution. The process of mobile application development is a complex one, and the possibility of errors cannot be left out. Testing helps one uncover those hidden bugs in an application. However, mobile application testing is not child’s play; it involves cascades of testing techniques. Therefore, a company requires testing professionals who are keen at picking out the bugs using the testing tools.
At IndiaNIC, we have highly skilled testing professionals who are well versed with advanced testing methods and possess sound knowledge of application programming. They are proficient in their task and perform rigorous testing of the applications across different handsets, carriers and languages. IndiaNIC enjoys being one of the most popular offshore web and mobile application development companies in India winning trust of hundreds of thousands of webmasters, companies and individuals across the world who seek outsourcing mobile application projects. We have ample resources and technical expertise for implementation of the entire software testing cycle (right from requirement analysis to test closure).
How does it work?
IndiaNIC proceeds in an orderly manner with QA testing and ensures that the testing takes place in a well-seasoned way.
After consultation with the project team, our QA team prepares a test plan. Based on the Software Requirements Specifications (SRS), the test cases and scenarios are developed.
After the proposal of the test plan and verification of the test cases, IndiaNIC’s professional testers start with the execution of the tests. Our testers use a variety of proven app testing techniques.
The bugs or the defects that are found into our on-line system are reported to the developers by our testers. The message of bug is conveyed using screen shots and other graphical tool.
Once the bugs are detected, they are reported to the developers who technically fix them and finally test again. After fixing bugs, the app is once again verified by the QA team before releasing it.
Types of Testing We Offer
User Interface Test
The objective of user interface test is to evaluate the efficacy of the application. It checks the degree to which the end users are able to interact effectively with the application. This test also evaluates the degree to which the mobile app can guide the users’ actions and enforce a consistent interaction. Furthermore, user interface testing also helps to:
- Ensure that the application’s conforms to the client requirements and to the other attributes of the analyzed model
- Dig up errors related specifically to interface’s working mechanism
- Ensure that the end users find the design friendly and easy to access. There should not be any ambiguity in terms of content and design.
At IndiaNIC, we carry out navigation test on your application to ensure that the navigation semantics and syntax are applied appropriately. We make sure that the navigation of the application is in compliance with the hardware of the device and that it conforms to the navigation standards of the device. Our testers also make sure that the users reach the app screens easily, and we make sure that they can get back to the home screen with the same ease.
This test is exclusively done for evaluating the applications by testing it on end users. This irreplaceable usability practice focuses on measuring the product’s capacity to meet its intended purpose.
IndiaNIC supports an on-demand User Acceptance Test (UAT). In this test, the application is actually tested by the end user. We share our testing guidelines through formal communication. This ensures the user friendliness of the application with better understanding and easy information sharing. The company also provides client support for technological inputs.
Network testing establishes the compliance of your mobile application with various networks like 3G and Wi-Fi. It tests the flexibility and performance of your mobile application under these networks and ensures that it works smoothly on them.
