Mobile app testing is a great determining factor for the commercial success of a mobile app. Being unique is not enough for your mobile app to stand out in the app market since users often do away with apps that have functionality problems, bad network performance, crashes, complex user interface and cross-platform compatibility issues. So, a right mobile app testing strategy is the best way out to give your app all it needs to deliver a top-notch user experience and become a big hit. However, you must pay heed to emerging app testing trends to create a robust strategy.
Top seven mobile app testing trends to look out for in 2016
- High Security
Since many mobile users store their sensitive and personal information on their mobile devices, there is always a high risk for identity theft and financial frauds. Mobile users are also prompted by some apps to share their sensitive data. Knowing the data theft threat, Quality Assurance (QA) professionals would like to take a holistic approach in 2016 while conducting security and penetration testing of their mobile apps, thereby ensuring the safety of the user’s sensitive data.
- Internet of Things
Internet of Things (IoT) has significantly grown in popularity over the past few years. Development of not only mobile applications, but modern web applications too is highly likely to be greatly impacted by IoT, since it could help a great deal in improving daily productivity levels for various organizations.
