Challenges of Mobile App Testing Today

Today’s consumers have come to expect a seamless, high-quality app experience. A poor experience can result in a loss of users and also damage the reputation of your brand. Therefore, a comprehensive mobile app testing strategy is critical to the development process. Today's mobile app landscape is evolving at rapid speed creating many challenges for mobile app developers, including:

  • New Technologies: Today’s mobile apps need to work flawlessly with smart-connected cars and homes, voice interfaces, kiosks, and more.
  • Geo-Awareness and Localization: Your app experience must be relevant to global audiences.
  • Rapid Release Schedules: In today’s world of continuous integration and continuous development, it is difficult to perform comprehensive testing that doesn’t hold up your release schedule.
  • Personalization: Customers expect personalized communications when using your app.
  • Device Fragmentation: Not only do developers have to keep up with the latest devices, they need to ensure apps work on the newest OS version, plus several older versions that are likely still in use, as users are not always quick to update.
  • Unexpected Customer User Cases: Every user is unique and the experiences they have with your apps will be different, too.

Due to these challenges, testing in a lab environment is no longer an exhaustive strategy as it does not consider the many things that can go wrong when your apps are given to real people with real devices. That's where Applause crowdtesting can help.
