It’s easy to test mobile apps in ideal conditions. But reality doesn’t always give us a full battery and strong Wi-Fi.
Did you know that 75% of mobile users delete an app if it freezes or crashes?
How does an app work…?
Let’s take an example of a m-commerce application. When a customer accesses the app, great things happen
1.86% Average network request failure rate per minute per app
1.7% average server error rate per minute per app
Maximum number of web service requests in an app’s busiest minute: 836,000
for an app with 35,600 active users at the time.
With a 1.86% average network request failure rate, your app could experience 15,550 failed network requests in a minute.
At a 1.5% average server error rate,
it could experience 14,200 server errors in a minute!
Mobile app testing is affected by challenges arising due to huge differences in network, devices and OS, not to mention differences in user skills. Adding to it, the need for better video and audio capabilities and hand gesture based applications, it is imperative that a mobile app delivers on all counts!

Developing a strategy that helps to lay down certain guiding principle, which all testers are expected to follow. This brings standardization in testing and ensures adequate test coverage.
Of course, emulators and simulators are really convenient in the early stages of mobile app development, but the app needs to be tested adequately on real devices too. This ensures realistic test results and gives the tester a better idea regarding the look and feel of the app and its general usability. Also, emulators don’t take hardware into consideration.
There is nothing worse than an app that loads slowly or crashes frequently.
50% users who encounter a bug never return. Selecting an appropriate testing partner to grow with can make the difference between success and failure for your app.
