Learn the best practices and steps for creating a winning mobile testing strategy.
This guide discusses the differences between virtual devices (emulators/simulators) and real devices, the benefits of each, when to test on each, and more.
In this post, we explain what cloud mobile testing is, the benefits of cloud mobile testing, and how to get started.
That is a wrap on SauceCon 2022! The three-day event hosted some of the best and brightest in the technology world discussing the importance of test throughout the SDLC. Keynotes featured notable leaders Kelsey Hightower, Nicole Forsgren PhD, and Sauce Labs CEO Aled Miles. Additionally, speakers from top-tier companies like Salesforce, Peloton, Women who Code, Duolingo, and Sirius XM filled the days’ content addressing every area of test and development. One of the main themes throughout the event was how testing has evolved to be one of, if not the most, important parts of a product through its development lifecycle.
Today marks the ending of our series ‘Every Experience Matters: Stat of the Week.’ Over the past few weeks we have stressed how mobile app bugs negatively impact a company’s bottom line. This can come in the form of cart abandonment, negative reviews or even user churn. We may have saved the best for last though because today we are diving into the world of accessibility and the tremendous opportunity that brands are fumbling when attempting to appeal to a wider audience.
Earlier this week, Sauce Labs Chief Customer Officer, Matt Wyman, sat down with journalist Marko Velimirović of Website Planet. The pair discussed the release of the consumer report Every Experience Matters as well as the state of DevOps, trends in testing and the increasing need for developers to deliver exceptional quality at velocity. To read the full interview, head over to Website Planet. A selected portion is included below.
It’s important to understand what makes simulators different from emulators, and why you’d choose to use one or the other. Learn more in this post.
Welcome back to our series ‘Every Experience Matters: Stat of the week.’ In the previous editions of this column, we have discussed consumer behavior on mobile apps and how it affects brand equity and reputation. We have touched on how errors and bugs can cause significant user churn and evaporation of digital confidence. Last week we discussed how negative word of mouth can be generated when a single user encounters a mistake on your mobile app. Today, we’ll dive into some industry-specific data and flag the largest offenders.
In the past two weeks, this series has taken a look at how often consumers encounter errors while browsing online and some of the behaviors a user will display when discovering a bug. If you’re new to the party, I’ll encapsulate it here by saying mobile apps are rife with coding issues and the vast majority of consumers have little to no tolerance for low-performing software. What we haven’t discussed yet is the ripple effect of one user encountering a problem. Do they merely pack their bags and go home or do they scream from the mountain tops for anyone willing to listen that they were personally wronged by your brand? If you have read the other two entries in this series, I’m sure you can guess where this is going.
Errors happen. Despite best efforts, no piece of software is perfect. Unintentional issues with code, updates to existing frameworks, or unexpected interactions with other tools can all cause errors. As a result, it's critical for companies to deploy robust and reliable error reporting processes that help them proactively identify potential issues and improve operational outcomes. In this error reporting overview, we'll break down how error reports work, what advantages they offer, and how this process works in Backtrace.
Welcome back to the new Sauce Labs series ‘Every Experience Matters Stat of the Week.” In last week’s edition, we mentioned that about a quarter of consumers encounter an error or bug every day. While this indicated that errors are quite common overall, we didn’t dive deeper into how a customer may react when encountering those bugs. Are customers as forgiving as we might hope? Sadly, that is not the case. The results are dubious, to say the least.
Open banking is a natural evolution in the API economy. By laying the foundation for web platform and mobile developers to build third-party products and services using any number of public (open) APIs, banks, financial services and insurance companies are ushering in next-generation customer experiences that are more frictionless and personalized.
