What Is Mobile Application Testing?

Short answer: mobile application testing is a vital part of the app development process that helps to ensure a bug-free app for a better consumer experience. It sounds easy enough, so why do you need it? With the huge proliferation of mobile devices, browsers, and operating systems, making sure your app is error-free on any system is essential to getting consumers to buy and use your app. Buggy apps don't get used and savvy consumers get frustrated quickly with apps that don't work as advertised. With more companies developing mobile products in an ever-expanding marketplace attracting consumers, and thus testing your mobile app, is essential.
