Website Testing as well as Mobile Quality Assurance Testing means testing the two different versions of the same software that is adapted for mobile devices and desktops. If you are using a particular application on your phones, for instance, Amazon, it is known as a mobile app. But when you use it on a desktop or laptop and open the same in the browser, you are accessing Amazon via website application.
Therefore, we can say, both the apps function the same way and are quite similar to each other. But the Testing process definitely differ from each other because of different features and specifications.
Difference between Mobile Applications and Website Applications;
Limited Storage capacity
Because mobile phones have relatively smaller RAM 8 GB or less and hard disk space 256 GB maximum as compared to enormous storage, 2TB and memory space 64 GB in the desktop and laptops, this can create serious limitations and challenges in front of the developers and testers while Testing.
Different interaction and interface
When it comes to computers or laptops, the only way to interact with an app is via mouse, keyboard and nowadays touch screen on selected laptop models. While the mobile applications interact in a number of ways from random scrolling, sensory actions, hand gestures to voice control interactions and commands for various iOS or Android apps. Mobile Testing Service providers use high end and proven automated tools and techniques for effective Software and application Testing.
Type of Application
It is vital to understand how an application uses the resources of the device its being tested on. While Desktops are always connected to power, mobile phones have comparatively higher battery life as compared to laptops. Device users always pay attention to what apps drain a mobile phone’s battery such as online games like PubG and COD. If mobile is in low power mode, various apps can fail to load or open.
Without the internet connection, your desktop or laptop app would stop running. While this is mostly true for mobile applications also, but there are some mobile apps which can run offline also. Like some gaming apps, photo editing apps, document editors, scanners, video makers etc. So, while testing a mobile app, a QA tester switch between online and offline mode to check how the apps behave in both scenarios.
