1) Device disintegration
This basically happens in the course of existence of several models. By far, this challenge is considered as one of the most difficult one in the list of challenges and this is because it has innumerable permutations. On the part of the mobile application development company, you cannot be sure that the hard work you have put in for developing one app will work on the another device or not. This is because the screen resolution, OS optimization, memory and other hardware specs can be poles apart from one device to another.
2) OS fragmentation
The basic concept behind OS fragmentation is dissimilar versions of OSS. Android and IOS both of them have approximately more than 10 versions existent in the market. App developers have to ensure that their app is functioning on each and every version of OS available. There should be boundless user experience despite the fact whether OS is installed in the device or not.
3) Connectivity types
Mobile data connection have various types 2G, 3G, 4G. Wi-Fi and LTE. Developers have to be a pro and check whether their app is performing on all these networks without facing any glitches. In several cases, your device might also be in the zone of no connection when it is turned to flight mode. No connection mode should also be taken into consideration while mobile app testing.
4) International approach
The preponderance of the apps designed by the mobile app development team taking the global view into consideration and here lies one of the other challenges…..”Translation”. Regional traits like language, time zone, and target audience are some of the hurdles to be faced by the testers targeting for the global audience. Some amusing relics can be caused if there is a change of time during ongoing app.
5) Battery life
The trends in the battery field are not as rapid as that of the app. The Plethora of apps is used by the users intentionally while some of them are just added which users don’t even pay heed to. This eats up battery a lot and makes the processing speed of app low which again is a major barrier in the app testing field. The power consumption should be kept minimum for effective app working.
