Today first time I got a chance to work on Mobile Application Testing.
I have never seen/worked on the iPad...Sad that I never explored any application.
But thought let me go through some resources before I just explore the application which I get.
Thanks to Gergely Brautigam (United Kingdom), for pointing me to excellent resources.
Although I took one node of the branch, And Testing Mobile Applications is interesting.
Testing iPad App - Crash course:
Apple iPad is leading the tablet revolution. Many companies now creating thousands of applications for iPad and they are now looking for skilled testers to test those applications run smoothly. As per research, 40% of retail online activity comes from tablets to buy products.
Here are the KIES (Keep it Easy and Simple)
1. Identify the Model of iPad Device.
2. Check the iPad Settings
3. Install the iPad App on the device (will be posted later)
4. Testing Techniques on iPad
Identify the Model of iPad Device:
Turn around the iPad device, there you see a logo "iPad".
Underneath, you will see a rectangular box with storage detail. (16 GB)
Below that you will observe Model number , which starts with "A" Letter and followed by 4 digits.
Check the iPad Settings:
I was surprised to see many settings in iPad. Click on the settings icon.
Now we will check few options in iPad.
· Settings -> General -> About
This gives basic information about iPad.
· Settings -> Mails, Contacts, Calendar
Set up Email address in settings for the iPad.
Testing Techniques on iPad:
a) After iPad app is install – verify each screen with Portrait and Landscape.
As design appears differently and leads to problems.
b) Take the screenshots of errors, you see on the iPad Screen.
Hold the Home Button and tap the power button on top right hand corner. The screen flashes with a sound like a camera taking a photo.
These Screenshots will be stored in Photos Section in iPad and can be shared and sent via email specified in the settings.
