Websites and Mobile Testing
Years ago, “software” referred to mainframe applications, and then later to desktop applications like Lotus 1-2-3 or Microsoft Word. Today, “software” generally refers to websites and mobile apps. Some testing methodologies remain as discussed in the classic book The Art of Software Testing by Glenford Myers in 1979. However, modern applications also require specialized techniques for complete testing.
Have you ever had a problem with an app on your mobile device? Did you stop using it and move on to a different one? Mobile Applications, or apps, place a high priority on usability and responsiveness. Poorly tested, bug-riddled software is often discarded quickly and the user switches to a different app. High quality mobile app testing, usually within an Agile development process, is critical to achieving the best user experience. At Iterators, we make use of actual devices, simulators, emulators and cloud-based device farms to test a wide variety of Android and iOS phones and tablets. We also test over a range of networks to make sure the app responds appropriately over both fast and slow networks.
