Posted by Claire Mackerras

mobile compatibilty testing

Testing confirms that the app meets every one of the prerequisites set and agreed upon by both the engineer and the client. This software thus enhances the reputation of the firm.

It is likewise true that quality items improve sales and advertising efforts and bring delight to the user. Besides, an effective compatibility test guarantees genuine compatibility among various processing conditions. Moreover, excellent mobile compatibility testing services additionally affirm the stability and strength of the product that is of much significance before its release. 

Types of Compatibility Testing

There are two types of compatibility testing:

Forward Compatibility Testing: This kind of testing checks whether the product works well with the more up-to-date or upcoming renditions, and is consequently called forward compatible.

Reverse Compatibility Testing: This kind of testing checks whether the product designed using a current version of an environment also works well in an old version, thus it is called backward compatibility testing.

    How Cloud-Based Mobile Device Lab Accelerates Time to Market and ROI?

    September 19 2017, 11:13am

    Posted by Claire Mackerras

    It becomes very chaotic to maintain the variety of mobile phones and tablets with the latest Android or iOS updates available across all makes and models for 24/7. There are various security concerns that arise for mobile app cloud testing as well as data management and accessibility thus creating a complex situation.

    In the following ways Cloud-Based Mobile Device Labs boost the productivity:

    • Faster market delivery: A unified environment needs to be established for the benefit of all DevOps teams. For fully operational regression testing, the environment is necessary in order to facilitate continuous integration


    • Simulate networks environmentBy using simulation environments helps us to understand real-life network conditions, thus enabling them to be prepared in dealing with network issues.


    • Strict security guidelines: An offshore hosted mobile lab is expected to support most security requirements while the onsite lab resides inside the company’s VPN. Devices are centralized in a demilitarized network area. Administrative capabilities enable the changing of security policies as per project requirements.
