Revenue generated by the global mobile app testing services market was estimated to reach US$ 2.2 Bn by 2016, witnessing an increase of 17.2% over 2015. (Source: Future Market Insight). As new industry leaders bring in new models, innovative technology and advanced testing solutions, the mobile app testing services market is expected to witness further growth during the forecasted period, 2016-2026.

According to Business Insider, 22% of World’s population owns a smartphone. This indicates what scope does mobile apps have. There are 2.8 million android apps and 2.2 million iOS apps. The competition among app developers is increasing daily. These app development companies need to deliver highly robust and bug-free apps to the end users. Companies cannot afford bugs in the apps resulting decreased percent of downloads and poor brand image.

To deliver high quality and robust apps, mobile app testing services need to test apps with different methods. There are 4 types of mobile app testing that not only deliver bug-free apps but also deliver apps with excellent user experience, great performance, good memory, etc..

Following are the 4 essential types of mobile app testing types:

Functional Testing- This is the most basic type of testing that determines whether the app is performing as per the end users’ expectations or not. Mobile apps require a lot of human interactions in user scenarios. Apps need to perform equally on different devices and different operating systems. Hence, mobile app testing services must perform functional testing.

Performance Testing- Mobile performance includes client app performance, server performance and network performance. Mobile app testing service providers must cover all these performance test scenarios. The performance test focuses more on user experience, like responsiveness to the user interaction. Front-end JavaScript profiling tools are used to identify the front-end bottlenecks for hybrid applications.

Memory Testing- Mobile memory is very limited as compared to other computers. Applications consuming excessive memory cause a poor user experience since it affects the speed of operating systems. Memory testing ensures that each app maintains optimized memory usage throughout the user journey. Memory testing should be conducted on the actual target device because the system architectures are different.

Usability Testing- Usability testing evaluates the app and tests efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction. It is assured that user goals are achieved in all possible environments.
