MEMORY LEAKAGE TESTING
Functional testing performs on the functional behavior of the application to ensures that the application is working as per the requirements. Mostly, testing performs on the user interface and call flows of the application.
The testing process is carried out by tester to test the performance and actions of the applications that pass through various mobile device.
challenges like; low battery power due to heavy battery uses, network out of coverage area/poor bandwidth/changing internet connection mode (2G, 3G, or WiFi)/changing broadband connection, transferring heavy file, less memory, concurrent approach to the application’s server by various users, etc.
Memory leakage happens when a computer program or application is unable to manage the memory it is allocated resulting in poor performance of the application and the overall slowdown of the system.
As mobile devices have significant constraints of available memory, memory leakage testing is crucial for the proper functioning of an application.
Usability testing is used to test the mobile applications in terms of usability, flexibility, and friendliness. The testing process makes sure that the mobile app is now easy to use and offers a suitable user experience to the customers.
An application while functioning may face several interruptions like incoming calls or network coverage outage and recovery.
The different types of interruptions are:
Incoming and Outgoing SMS and MMS
Incoming and Outgoing calls
Cable Insertion and Removal for data transfer
Network outage and recovery
Media Player on/off
Device Power cycle
Installation testing is used to test the particular application is installing, uninstalling, and updating properly without any interruption (user is smoothly and flexibly installing the application).
Operational testing is used to test that the particular back-up and recovery process is working properly and responding as per the requirement.
The purpose of security testing to test the application’s data and network security to check the application’s data and network security is responding as per the given requirement/guideline.
All above testing methodologies prove that users can trust on applications that come with mobile devices, all applications are completely tested with many testing methodologies. But, be careful before using applications on mobile devices, if mobile applications involve internet connection then make sure that the device is already carrying antivirus.
