Testing of mobile applications is significantly different from the standard approach of testing applications designed for use with personal computers, because of the large number of specific work, the design features of mobile devices and a variety of mobile platforms.
Features that should be taken into account when testing applications for mobile devices, very much.

The key moments are:

  • Job applications with memory leaks control;
  • The intensity of power consumption, sensitivity to the charge;
  • The use of disk space, stability in the limited disk space, logging, work with memory cards;
  • Support for different screen resolutions, portrait and landscape modes;
  • Connecting to the Internet, using the best connection: Active Sync, USB, GPRS, Wi-Fi; work in conditions of unstable compounds;
  • The stability of the applications for incoming / outgoing calls, sending and receiving SMS / MMS;
  • Compliance (Symbian Signed certification, Java Verified testing, etc.);
  • Specificity of data synchronization with the phone book, calendar, programs on your PC;
  • Proper installation / uninstallation program in the phone memory and memory card;
  • The correct localization;
  • Stable operation in conditions of stress, recovery from crashes.
