Mobile-TestingMobile website development is becoming more critical for businesses as the demand for smartphones and tablets grows and becomes more commonplace. The 2012 -13 World Quality Report (WQR) reveals that a majority of developers and QA professionals are skimping on important steps in the mobile testing process in order to rush their mobile apps and websites to market to meet truncated deadlines. Many development teams are feeling the pain that occurs with the demand of high output and quick product deadlines. However, they may not have the right tools for effective mobile testing and QA, if at all.

Many businesses are expanding their mobile development without adding headcount; therefore it is important to the bottom line that they increase workflow efficiency and productivity. The adoption of mobile brings on new challenges for development and QA teams. According the WQR, when QA testers and developers from a variety of industry sectors were asked if mobile app testing is a regular process in their development stage, answers for yes ranged between the 20-30th percentile. It is clear that there is a lack in regular testing in the development stage .For mobile initiatives to be successful, teams must be armed with the right tools and methods to properly test and troubleshoot mobile apps and websites.
