Interruption Conditions Testing

There are various facts that interrupt the flow of our applications. So every application should be able to manage these and should be tested for the same-

  1. Incoming calls
  2. Text messages
  3. Sleep mode
  4. Pop-up alerts and various notifications and the mobile’s power cycle strike the performance of the app.

Network Condition Testing

Another major aspect in this mobile application testing checklist is network condition testing. The testers should scrutinize the network type and transition. Test the various network connectivity scenarios and find out whether the application behaves as expected or not. Also keep in check whether the user can exit the application without any problem or not.

Performance Testing

While testing the performance one should examine the speed of the app, its memory, the memory card storage facility, battery backup and the responsiveness of the app.

Installation Testing

The examiner should check how the app is installed and what is the process of uninstalling or reinstalling the app.

Device Integration Testing

It is one of the most important components in our mobile application testing checklist  as through this test, the examiner looks into how the app integrates with the device, including its capability to utilize the device’s location, video and camera as well as how the content is displayed.

Our users should be warned of the results of deleting an item. Verify that there is a notification whenever a user wants to delete something in the application.

Keep a check on whether the mobile application can maintain time zone changes and entries with date and time which are in sequence but not in chronological order.

If the application is multilingual, it should be tested in different languages to ensure that there is no character encoding issue or any other issue, due to varying character lengths.

Hardware Connectivity Testing

Check that the device recognition works correctly in the application and  also verify the errors when the connection is lost at times of transferring of data.

Sometimes you may face problem while downloading applications, so just verify that problem, as well.

Verify if the battery consumption levels of the application are according to the desired standards.
