  • Packing is done using PhoneGap, Xamarin etc.
  • Single code base and reduced development time
  • Challenges exist in accessing certain hardware features

Web App Development

  • Existing web sites re-designed to render on mobile devices
  • Bootstrap or similar technologies used along with responsive frameworks
  • Primarily used for informational or simple requirements

Mobile Testing Strategies

There are a few considerations to be made before testing mobile apps:

Target hardware: One of the key areas of complexity in deciding the mobile application test plan is the device fragmentation. With a huge number of devices available in the market, testing on every device with various versions and SKUs is not possible. One of the strategies employed is to identify devices which cover majority of the market for the intended user base of that application.

Target OS version: Normally this would have already been decided during the development phase, however the target OS version needs to be considered for estimating and planning the testing effort.

Emulators to be used for scenarios: Device cost and the availability of devices for testing be reduced by planning to utilize the emulators for some of the non-critical functionality and for regression testing.

Similar to testing web applications, employ manual and automation testing to achieve good quality application. Manual mobile testing strategies are normally focused around application functionality and user experience testing. Automated testing strategies leverage scripting based testing for testing across different devices and form factors. We have experience in both manual and script based testing of mobile applications, having used automation tools like Monkey talk to automate application testing.
