Mobile Testing: To Automate or Not to Automate?

Companies are moving into mobile technology at a rapid pace, which has significantly increased the need for manual testing in that area. Companies are turning to automation to help ease the workload but it is not always obvious what should be automated. Mobile has its own set of complications, compounded by a huge variety of devices and OS platforms. This presentation helps attendees learn what mobile testing activities are ripe for automation as well as those items best left to manual efforts. In particular David will consider whether to automate Mobile Web; Native Applications and Hybrid Applications. At the device level we will consider orientation (Portrait vs. landscape), pinching and zooming, calling feature and SMS. Types of testing will cover User Experience, Functionality, and Business Process Flow and Data. Lastly we will consider some available tools.

Learning Objectives:

  • Calculate a targeted automation percentage for your efforts
  • Use a success story to motivate your mobile testing
