Type of Testing for mobile Application
1 Functional Testing- Functional testing ensures that the application is working as per the requirements. Most of the test conducted for this is driven by the user interface and call flows. Its application should be able to handle these interruptions by going into a suspended state and resuming afterwards.
2. Network carriers Testing- If your application is related to the mobile network provider of location wise. It should be tested well in all geographic location with multiple service provider. In this testing is performed to find out any glitches when a mobile application uses voice and/or data connection to perform some functions.
3. Performance Testing- In this testing we will check the how much me memory is consume by the application during using the app. Also check the behavior of the application under certain conditions such as low battery, bad network coverage, low available memory, simultaneous access to application’s by multiple user.
4. Memory Leakage Testing- Memory leakage happens when a computer program or application is unable to manage the memory it is allocated resulting in poor performance of the application and the overall slowdown of the system. As mobile devices have significant constraints of available memory, memory leakage testing is crucial for the proper functioning of an application.
6. Compatibility testing- In the compatibility testing, we will test the application into the different browser or platform available into the market. In this testing verifies that the installation process goes smoothly without the user having to face any difficulty.
