From initially establishing the need for mobile app testing, to determining the goals of mobile app testing, we will go into some typical scenarios that a Mobile App Tester will come across, including; planning the testing, estimating the testing, calculating device coverage and communication issues. In addition, we will look at the differences between testing on real devices and simulators.
While many traditional software testing methodology's can apply to testing mobile apps, there are specific ways in which they should be applied, which we will cover in this section of the training course. Our trainers have also interviewed expert Mobile App Testers employed by Testing4Success to teach you some highly effective testing methodology's and techniques such as; mobile app exploratory testing and the highly-effective '10 Minute Test'.
While installing an already released app on a mobile device is relatively straight-forward, installing a pre-release app requires a certain level of knowledge in order to trouble-shoot and solve any installation issues. This section of the training course will explain the various file types associated with Android and iPhone mobile apps, along with the process of provisioning. Step-by-step instructions on how to go about installing iPhone and Android apps are also detailed in this section.
Most mobile apps contain a number of common elements, and in this section of the training course we will provide you with screen-shots of these elements along with an explanation of their functionality. Importantly, we will also provide suggested test cases to enable you to effectively test any element within an app. An extensive range of elements are covered here including; navigation, text, indicators, pickers, alerts, toolbox elements and many more.
A mobile app may contain any number of features. Our training course will provide you with the appropriate approaches and techniques to effectively testing these features. We will teach you how to use basic mobile app testing techniques to be the most effective with your testing time. We will focus on common high-risk areas of an app and how to test them, such as text input fields and using Boundary Value Analysis and Equivalence Partitioning in order to effectively test them.
The way the testing is documented is an important factor in any mobile app test, and we will explain the right way to do things and how to avoid common pitfalls. The training course will also explain how to document any defects found during an app test, along with detailed instructions on how to obtain screen-shots from Android and iPhone devices. In addition, details of how to obtain crash logs from devices is also explained.
This set of lessons will provide valuable insight into using the correct automated approaches and solutions for any mobile app. Creating an automated test process will also be discussed along with a tool evaluation process. In addition, top tips on establishing a mobile test environment is also included.
In order to ensure you have you understood and absorbed the training material. This workshop includes a multiple-choice quiz. Your training course tutor will mark your question paper and inform you of the results via email.
This workshop will involve downloading a variety of real apps, and focus on the ability to evaluate them. Next, you will be tasked with detecting defects within each of them. You will also be tasked with entering a defect report for the defects found along with screen-shots. Your training tutor will provide you with feedback relating to the defect report accuracy and clarity.
Now its really time to put your knowledge to the test!...This workshop will require you to test real mobile apps in order to find specific types of defects. Knowing how to locate some of these 'hard-to-find' defects is a key skill to becoming an effective Mobile App Tester, and by the end of this workshop you will have the necessary knowledge and 'hands-on' experience!
