Mobile app testing refers to the development process of ensuring mobile software is tested for programming errors, usability, and user experience. In the event a mobile app fails to perform to a high standard, users will more than likely delete the app. The following article exposes why a mobile app must be tested properly and provides a handy checklist for your convenience.


Few issues are as frustrating for customers as a product that doesn’t work as well as it should. In the case of mobile apps, the expectations people have for flawless delivery can be such that most people will abandon an app after it fails them twice.

If an app crashes, becomes too confusing to navigate or takes too long to complete a task, the vast majority of users will delete it.

Whether your business’s mobile app was developed in-house or by a third-party developer, you need to be sure that it will work perfectly for users every time they use it, regardless of the circumstance.

One of the best ways to ensure your app is perfect is to regularly test it. By putting your mobile app through the gauntlet and pushing it to its limits, you can discover bugs or kinks in the code that your customers shouldn’t be finding. Otherwise, users will find those flaws first and take the opportunity to say goodbye to it forever.

Testing a mobile app means more than just making sure it does a few tasks correctly. It can be a complex and tedious process, but must be done to ensure customers have a flawless experience they’re seeking, and developers must have a resource that can help guide them through the testing process.

The following checklist is provided as a guide to help you test your mobile app thoroughly so no stone is left unturned. Taking frustration out of the equation is what’s best for your customers.
