It’s a fact of life today that many businesses need mobile apps to be competitive. Consumers these days expect to be able to connect with customer service, browse inventory and initiate orders through their smartphones or tablet devices. However, in the rush to get a mobile app out of beta and into the app marketplace, many businesses don’t realize that releasing a buggy app can be the same as not having an app at all. That’s because consumers’ expectations for mobile apps are exceptionally high. The majority of mobile app users will delete an app if it fails to deliver a flawless experience more than once. If the app crashes, becomes too confusing to navigate, or takes too long to complete a task, users will move on to find another app that will offer a better experience. That’s why it’s crucial for businesses to make sure their mobile apps are tested thoroughly before they’re released.Testing a mobile app means more than just making sure it does a few tasks correctly. Businesses must be prepared to put their mobile apps through the wringer to make sure they can withstand any stresses users may put on them. A complete and thorough testing process can help ensure that businesses find the flaws in their mobile apps before their customers do. The following checklist gives you all of the steps you should take when testing your mobile app.
