Mobile App Performance Testing

Future is here!!

Mobile phones are taking over the world!!

In India, more people are being introduced to internet and ecommerce via mobile devices than desktops. Few years back, mobile users were considered as being patient about the speed of native apps, however now they will reportedly abandon the app if the action doesn't complete in 300 seconds. Also as the mobile use grows, the online shoppers are striving for seamless experience between web and mobile platform.

The shift to mobile has been rapid, leaving many companies struggling to keep up. Mobile traffic has now overtaken desktop traffic. According to Cap-Gemini, 58% of traffic to online retail sites now comes via a smartphone or tablet. A slow loading website or app can directly translate to lost custom, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, closely followed by the holiday season, retailers should be testing their load times and preparing for the rush.

A study by CA Technologies found that 68% of people who left a brand because of slow loading times expected the app to load in six seconds or less. In fact, half of them expected it to load in three seconds or less.

It's not as simple as delivering content fast when it comes to boosting online shopper's experience. You have to take into account the design, the context, the sequence in which the content loads and minimize the usage of dynamic content without sacrificing user's attention. And if that doesn't make web and app developer's lives difficult enough, they also have to think about what appeals to their users, emotional content or attention grabbing content.

Why TuneIT?

Mobile application testing for performance testing is not the same as traditional performance testing. Mobile is a whole new game and the testing requirements for all attributes are much steeper due to the unpredictability.

The purpose of load testing is to determine whether the application can maintain the required number of users with acceptable rejoinder times. The intention of propensity testing is to standard the maximum load of simultaneous users an application can sustain before experiencing system failure while the intention of stress testing is to validate an application's constancy and dependability over an comprehensive period of time.

On the server side: we need to understand variations in response times, streaming resource intensive packets, delays in delivery of messages, application crashes etc.

On the client side: we need to address the usual discrepancy of application behavior on various platforms and handsets, memory and CPU consumption, loading speed and battery issues.
