Mobile application development testing is pne of the major challenges facing the industry. Handset manufacturers, application developers, carriers and others must ensure that mobile applications and software run flawlessly on hundreds–if not thousands–of mobile handsets around the world.
As smartphones and other mobile computing devices increase in complexity, mobile application development is hindered without proper testing.
Perfecto Mobile, a company based in Israel, has developed an mobile application testing service on the Internet to quickly and efficiently test new mobile applications and mobile content in a market changing daily.
Mobile Application Development Process
The Perfecto Mobile system is a hardware and software solution. Mobile handsets are mounted on cradles and they connect to the Perfecto Mobile system through their data ports. Users access the handsets via a web-based UI.
When a user clicks on a handset’s key in the GUI, the Perfecto Mobile system sends a command to the real handset and the same key on the actual device is pressed. A video camera captures the real user experience as it is displayed on the handset’s screen and streams it back to the user’s PC. The system also captures and records the handset’s audio.
The Perfecto Mobile system is non-intrusive, so adding, reconfiguring or replacing a handset is really easy, making it ideal for testing various handset models and especially pre-launched handsets in a constantly changing environment.
Perfecto Mobile’s service significantly reduces the complexity involved in launching and sustaining mobile services. The service streamlines the development, testing and monitoring processes of mobile applications and content across devices, networks and geographies.
Perfecto Mobile enables users to control remote handsets and use automated procedures that test and monitor performance and monitoring tasks more efficiently and effectively.
Users can test each device and ensure compatibility of their products or services with more devices and more networks, which improves quality, shorter time to market, and overall reduction in costs and logistical efforts.
