  1. 1. What is Mobile Application Testing?: It is somewhat similar to software testing but the testing will be performed on a mobile device instead of performing on a system. Difference between mobile testing and mobile application testing: Mobile Testing or Mobile Device Testing: -Mobile Testing is testing of Mobile Handsets or devices. -Testing all the core like SMS ,Voice calls, connectivity(Bluetooth) , Battery(Charging),Signal receiving, Network are working correctly. -Testing is conducted on both hardware and software. Mobile Application Testing: -Mobile Application Testing is the testing of mobile applications which we are making as third party for the targeted mobile handset. -Some core feature of the mobile are tested just to see that your application has not created any side effects on your device functionality.
  2. 2.  Android  IOS(Iphone)  Symbian(Nokia)  J2ME  RIM(Blackberry)  BREW  Windows Mobile or WinCe  Bada(Samsung)  Meego
  3. 3.  Firmware is a combination of software and hardware. Fixed software programs that internally control various electronic devices or individual hardware parts of these devices.  Computer chips that have data or programs recorded on them are firmware. Firmwares are usually stored on ROM or OTP/EPROM, while more complex firmwares occupy flash memory to allow for updates. Firmware Update:  In order to improve the phone’s performance and to provide more sophisticated features, firmwares are updated. Common reasons for updating a firmware include fixing bugs or adding features to the device.
  4. 4.  Android is an operating system for mobile devices developed by Android. Later, the organization has been taken over by google.  The operating system is used in smart phones.  A smartphone is a device that lets you make telephone calls, but also adds in features that, in the past, you would have found only on a personal digital assistant or a computer--such as the ability to send and receive e-mail and edit Office documents, for example.

  12. 12. -Installation: Verify that application can be Installed Successfully. Types of installation: 1)OTA(Over The Air)- Need GPRS sim card and internet connection. 2)Wifi 3)Datacable 4)Bluetooth -Uninstallation: Verify that application can be uninstalled successfully. -Network Testing: Verify the behavior of application when there is Network problem and user is performing operations for data call. User should get proper error message like “Network error. Please try after some time” Verify that user is able to establish data call when Network is back in action. User should be able to establish data call when Network is back in action.
  13. 13. Voice Call Handling: Call Accept: Call Rejection: SMS Handling: Unmapped Keys: Verify that unmapped keys are not working on any screen of application. External Volume control keys:
  14. 14. Application Logo: Verify that application logo with Application Name is present in application manager and user can select it. Splash: Verify that when user selects application logo in application manager splash is displayed. Note that Splash do not remain for more than 3 seconds. Low Memory: Verify that application displays proper error message when device memory is low and exits gracefully from the situation. Clear Key: Verify that clear key should navigate the user to previous screen.
  15. 15. End Key: Verify that End Key should navigate the user to native OEM screen. Visual Feedback: Verify that there is visual feedback when response to any action takes more than 3 seconds. Continual Keypad Entry: Verify that continual key pad entry do not cause any problem. Features to be checked while testing a touch screen device: Touch functionality Touch Response Touch Area Exit Application: Verify that user is able to exit from application with every form of exit modes like Flip, Slider, End Key or Exit option in application and from any point. Charger Effect:
  16. 16. Low Battery: Verify that when application is running and battery is low then proper message is displayed to the user. Removal of Battery: Battery Consumption: Verify that application does not consume battery excessively. Application Start/ Restart: 1. Find the application icon and select it 2. 2. “Press a button” on the device to launch the app. 3.Observe the application launch In the timeline defined. 3. Application must not take more than 25s to start. Application Side Effects: Make sure that your application is not causing other applications of device to hamper.
  17. 17. External incoming communication – infrared: Application should gracefully handle the condition when incoming communication is made via Infra Red. When the incoming communication enters the device the application must at least respect one of the following: a) Go into pause state, after the user exits the communication, the application presents the user with a continue option or is continued automatically from the point it was suspended at b) Give a visual or audible notification The application must not crash or hung. Bluetooth interrupt: When a file transfer is taking place with bluetooth, the application must be paused and should be resumed from the same point after the transfer is done.
  18. 18. Scenarios:  If the device is tilted from portrait mode to landscape mode and vice versa, the screen should self adjust as per the device resolution(condition: if the application supports both landscape and portrait modes)  If the device is tilted from portrait mode to landscape mode, the screen should display an error message asking the user to switch the device back to landscape mode or the screen resolution should not change (condition: if the application supports only portrait mode)  If the device is tilted from landscape mode to portrait mode, the screen should display an error message asking the user to switch the device back to portrait mode or the screen resolution should not change (condition: if the application supports only landscape mode)
