ATIMI is a mobile software testing company that digs deeper to find bugs that aren’t always obvious. That is why we commonly find bugs that are not GUI (Graphical User Interface) defects. ATIMI knows how to discover the minds kinds of bugs that exist beyond functionality bugs, including:
- Connection Issues Bugs
- API Error Bugs
- Services Bugs
- Performance Bugs
- Security Bugs
- Negative Condition Bugs
- Integration Bugs
These are very important. There are also many other types of bugs, but these bugs are discovered in a different way than looking at the UI.
How ATIMI Tests Mobile Software
Functionality testing covers the main functions of your app.
There is also connection testing to make sure the mobile app handles connectivity interruptions gracefully.
ATIMI also utilizes negative testing where error guessing techniques are employed to brainstorm situations in which a mobile app may not properly display correct error messages or API error codes that are useful to the end user.
The next parameter of utmost importance is security. Therefore, security testing is a technique used to determine if the components or the services of the mobile app protects user data and maintains functionality as intended based on the principles of confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity.
ATIMI is second-to-none when it comes to making sure your mobile app integrates with your entire system. This is integration testing. Most mobile apps consist of third-party services used for storing and retrieving data from a backend service. One such type of service is a CMS or Content Management System. This is where assets stored by the mobile app, such as images, data and more displayed in the mobile app.
Mobile Software Testing Outside the “Box”
These are kinds of things ATIMI keeps in mind whenever we’re performing mobile software testing. We are creative. We perform multiple tasks that involve using the mobile device’s sensors. We’ll multi-task to see how well memory consumption and asynchronous calls are handled.
To ensure the best results, we’ll even take videos in slow motion to observe behavior that can be missed in a glitch. Sometimes, we see flickers when navigating from screen to screen in slow motion. This can be due to several reasons, but one common reason is that the user is being taken to one screen to be forwarded to say a web page that is embedded in the mobile app. This is called a hybrid mobile app, and these functions may or may not have been intended by the developer.
We Use iOS and Android Guidelines
ATIMI uses the information provided by the iOS human interface guidelines for iOS devices or the Android design guidelines for Android in their bug reports. This is just a brief overview of the many techniques utilized by ATIMI when testing mobile software.
