Things To Know About App Testing During Development


With years of experience in app development and testing, we give utmost importance to quality assurance in mobile application development. Our team of adroit software testers ensures that quality assurance is an integral part of the development lifecycle right from ideation to deployment and in post-development reviews.

Here are a few things the QA engineers at Toobler consider while involving testing as a part of the development phase.

Planning-Test Early, Test Often

Incorporate testing as early as possible in the development phase to maximize the benefits of your testing efforts. This ensures on-time delivery of  high quality products while saving big on overall development time, effort and costs. At Toobler, our experts build a standard testing procedure just when workflow and sprints of the development team are created. 

Identify Application Testing Types and Target Devices

Before testing any apps, the team analyzes and identifies testing types suitable for evaluating different parameters like performance, security, compatibility of the particular app. Besides, they also determine the target devices that the app will support and the corresponding functional requirements that should be tested.

Go for Continuous Testing

Embracing continuous integration and continuous deployment, continuous testing has become an integral part of our testing strategy. With continuous feedback, developers can detect and fix bugs early resulting in accelerated time-to-market and reduced business risks. The methodology promotes communication transparency by breaking silos between development, testing and operations teams. 

Use Automated App Testing

Automated testing is a win-win situation for both the testers who can focus on crucial quality assurance aspects like usability testing while monotonous and time-consuming tasks are automated and developers can detect bugs earlyand  fix issues at a much faster pace. With advantages like 24/7 test execution and reduced human error, automated tests save time, money and effort. 

Cloud-Based Testing Platform

With cloud-based testing, automated tests can be performed  on thousands of devices running on different platforms all at once. This helps our experts understand how the app will perform on various devices without the hassle of managing server settings or licensing.

User Interface testing

User experience  plays a crucial role in deciding your app’s success. It is essential  to check the app for usability issues. Don’t forget to test menus, navigation flow, content, history, bookmarks and settings of the application.

Functional Automated Testing

It involves testing the complete app functionality using advanced tools, identifying functions the software is expected to perform, running use cases and comparing actual and expected outcomes. 

Other Testing Types Incorporate in The Development Phase 

  • Performance test

  • Stress test

  • Installation test

  • Regression Testing

  • Upgrades testing

  • Operational testing

  • Services testing- online and offline

  • Security and Compliance Testing

To achieve success in the highly competitive landscape of mobile apps, a well-planned testing strategy is crucial. Poorly planned testing not only ruins your team’s development efforts but can also emerge as the single biggest cost in your budget.
