Developing & Testing Mobile Apps on the Fly in an “I Want it Now” World

How can mobile applications keep up with the demands of the “I want it now” user generation of today? Is it possible to break down the barrier between users, application developers, and testers?
Mobile application development is tough! Today mobile application development tends to follow structured processes with incremental application releases. These processes create an environment where user and tester feedback lacks the data that developers need in order to accurately and quickly determine the root causes of bugs.
The reality is that within today’s world, change is inevitable. Structured testing doesn’t harmonize well with change. Mobile application teams find themselves needing a more continuous feedback approach where requirements evolve, end users are engaged, and an in-context understanding of mobile application usage optimizes decision making.
In this session, we’ll describe how you can facilitate continuous mobile application development and testing by analyzing trends behind user feedback, enabling application testers to easily provide in-context test results, enabling developers to view bug reports with the details they need, and empowering your user community to provide detailed usage and environment data in addition to their app store rating review. This innovative approach to mobile application testing will simplify outdated, cumbersome processes and enable you to rapidly develop the mobile applications users want to use.

Session Takeaways:

  • A modern approach to managing mobile application development and test that is more aligned to today’s generation, maintains transparency, and harmonizes data.
  • Modern mobile application development requires rapid response to user feedback because requirements are constantly evolving.
  • Providing developers with detailed, automatically generated bug reports allows them to fix bugs faster and more accurately.
  • Trends and user sentiment can be gathered from mobile application user feedback to inform development and test.
