As smart devices take a larger portion of the market share, testers will face pressure to test their web applications for mobile devices and potentially test their own organizations native mobile applications. To test mobile devices, in this fast paced, ever-changing industry, testers must learn to deliver quick, extensive, and successful tests on mobile devices.
Many testers attempt to apply what they know to mobile testing, and why that may work for some functional testing, it often leaves many critical features untested. Untested, critical faults can mean a swift end to a mobile application in the market. Thus, learning how to identify common issues in mobile applications and how to properly test the unique aspects of a mobile application is the only way to be successful.
