- To ensure User-friendliness
Many factors determine the success of a
mobile application however the most
important seems to be its user-friendliness.
Here are 5 types of testing that can be used
for ensuring user-friendliness of mobile apps.
Why test apps for User-friendliness?
1. Functional Testing

application meets the pre-defined requirements. It’s a time-
consuming task when done manually however considers the
various scenarios for user experience and eliminates the
glitches that may arise.

network performance. Being more focused on user
experience, this testing type tests for responsiveness of the
application on user interactions.

usage for which memory testing is being done. This test is
being done on the actual mobile devices for better efficiency.

interruptions like notifications, SMS, low battery, memory
warning, etc. This is where interruption testing has its role.
