Testpoint is a cloud-based mobile app testing platform that allows you to run comprehensive tests on both Android and iOS apps. You can use it to create and execute test cases, record and play back user sessions, and analyze the results of your tests. Here is an overview of how you might use Testpoint to run a comprehensive mobile app test:
The 10 Commandments of mobile app testing
- Create a test project: Log in to your Testpoint account and create a new test project for your app. Specify the app’s name, platform (choose Android app test or iOS app test), and version.
- Upload your app: Upload the .apk or .ipa file for your app to Testpoint. The platform will automatically install the app on a set of virtual devices.
- Create test cases: Create test cases for the app by specifying the actions that need to be performed, such as launching the app, navigating to a specific screen, and interacting with different elements. You can use the built-in editor to create test cases or upload test cases from an external tool.
- Execute test cases: Use Testpoint’s automated testing tools to execute the test cases on the virtual devices. You can schedule test runs to happen at specific times, or you can run the tests on-demand.
- Analyze test results: Analyze the results of the test runs, including screenshots, videos, and logs. Testpoint will automatically identify any issues that were encountered during the tests, such as crashes or errors.
- Report issues: Report issues found during the testing to the development team and monitor the progress of the issues resolution.
- Collaborate with the team: Testpoint allows you to collaborate with other members of your team, you can share test cases, discuss test results, and assign tasks related to the app’s development and testing.
- Repeat testing: As your app development evolves, you can repeat the testing process multiple times, with different test cases and test plans.
- Prepare for release: When the test results are satisfactory, you can prepare the app for release.
- Monitor app performance in real-world conditions: After release, you can use Testpoint to monitor the app’s performance in real-world conditions.
By using Testpoint, you can automate many of the tasks involved in running a comprehensive mobile app test, which can save you time and improve the accuracy of your tests. Keep in mind that like any crowdtesting tool, it’s important to understand how it works and how to use it effectively.
