How to Create a Well-Balanced Test Strategy
Mobile apps are a necessity for companies of all sizes, and apps are getting more complex all the time. That along with the dizzying array of devices requires a well thought-out mobile testing strategy. And it will involve a bit of risk/reward analysis.
Having an appropriate amount of risk and reward will help you create a well-balanced mobile testing strategy. It’s important to take into consideration platform mix, test execution, manual/automated testing, device management, and outsourcing as part of your strategy. With such growth in the mobile industry, testers must thoroughly understand the application and its customers.
Start thinking about whether these items may fit into your strategy:
- Figuring out your target demographics
- Accessing emulator limitations
- Accounting for multitasking and integrations
- Striving for adequate automation for scaling
- Owning a manageable number of devices
- Outsourcing to reduce inventory demands

Mobile apps come with inherent risks. For usability, compatibility and responsiveness testing, what might be considered a minor issue on a laptop could be critical on a mobile device. People are generally hurrying, multitasking and have limited time and attention spans when using mobile devices, so it’s not just bugs in apps that aren’t well tolerated. Buttons, menus and forms that are easy to access on a desktop can be small and frustrating to use when resized for mobile. Testing too many devices creates unnecessary expenses; too few devices risks lost revenue from app abandonment. However, taking time to understand the device ecosystem and the customer the application is designed for will enable creating a test strategy that will balance risk and return.
