Description

An internationally recognized standard in Mobile App Testing

With increasing frequency corporations offer services by mobile apps instead of the formerly usual desktop applications. At the same time clients and users become more critical on quality. A “zero tolerance” attitude towards shortcomings applies to a lot of apps.

Both in development and testing of mobile apps we face new challenges. There are platforms like iOS, Android, RIM and Windows. There are sometimes a lot of versions for each platform. Not to mention the many hardware configurations. Our smartphones have become full-size computers on which many applications run side by side, and a lot of these applications do have strict quality requirements.

What are the consequences for the test approach? Which things do testers have to take into account and what kind of problems can they expect? How can they be sure that they are fast enough? Because the speed in which both hardware configuration, software configuration and new app versions are generated is fiercely fast.
