The Challenges of Mobile Application Testing

Testing a web application designed for mobile devices falls into two major categories; functional and compatibility. 

Functional testing can be performed in a desktop environment as we are validating that the application performs the desired functions correctly. However, for compatibility tests, we need to ensure that the tests are run across as many combinations of hardware and operating system as possible. 

There are a growing number of smartphones, tablets, readers and other mobile devices on the market and end users will expect your site or app to work on their particular device. This means you’re working with different screen sizes, resolutions and performance levels.
