Start with a QA Strategy for Your Mobile Application Testing
The best way to protect yourself from mobile application defects, bugs and glitches is to select a smart QA strategy. You invested a lot in your business model and mobile app design. You probably even hired some experts to help you make smart choices. You invested even more in finding and selecting the very best mobile application developer that you could afford. You definitely hired experts here, right?
So, what is your testing and QA strategy? You have one of four choices:
- Test it yourself – this should save time and money because you know the app and the use cases.
- Have the devs test it for you – they built it so they should know best how to test it.
- Don’t test it – it’s really simple and what could go wrong anyway?
- Hire an expert for testing and QA – like you hired for design and coding.
