How to Accelerate App Testing Using Continuous Testing Cloud?

A study shows that there are over 3500 apps that are released on the google play store every day. Imagine the number of app developers that put in a number of hours to bring apps to our phones on a daily basis. And we are just talking about the Android apps, imagine if we combined the number of apps released for iOS and other operating systems as well. With a lot of apps being rolled out every day in the market, there is hardly any room for releasing apps with errors. Ensuring that the apps you release are of high quality and immune to any crashes gives it a good chance for consumers to download and use. But, consider the cutthroat competition in the market. How does one develop apps that are unique and of high quality at the same time? The key to that is to ensure a continuous testing process, or a continuous feedback loop is created to develop, test, and release apps swiftly. Time plays an important role in ensuring that you stay ahead of the competition at all times. And to ensure faster releases, implementing the Continuous Testing strategy becomes non-negotiable.

What is Continuous Testing?

Continuous Testing is one of the prime strategies that has helped many companies scale up their app testing efforts and speed up the SDLC. The key to building quality apps at a rapid pace is to ensure that there is a continuous feedback loop that is built around different teams. And that is exactly what the Continuous Testing methodology does, it allows teams to start work on a particular project simultaneously without having to wait on other teams to complete their tasks. It allows the teams to continually run tests both manually and through automation to validate the functionality under development in the delivery process. It allows both testers and developers to work alongside each other throughout the entire development and deployment process, ensuring that the updates or functionalities are released fast without any delays. Now that we understand what continuous testing is, let’s look at how we can accelerate our testing efforts by leveraging a continuous testing cloud.

How to Accelerate Your App Testing Efforts?

But how will the situation pan out if the team is distributed across different geographies and time zones? How will one access a lab that is setup at a particular location? And that’s where Cloud Solutions come in, being able to access a testing infrastructure that is set up on the cloud allows access to anyone across the globe to perform test runs on the devices required. Now what are some things to keep in mind while testing on Continuous Testing Device or Browser Clouds? How can we accelerate our testing efforts by leveraging these technologies? Here are a few pointers that shed light on the subject.

1. Implement Continuous Testing Methodologies

2. Use Real Devices to Test

3. Utilize various Automation Techniques

4. Add tools and integrations

5. Monitor Diverse Performance Artefacts

6. Widen Test Cases
