Houston, We Might Have an iOS Problem!
Apple gadgets are not as essential as air or water, but come on, we can’t deny that these devices have taken over the world. Just look at those lines in Apple stores when a new iPhone is released… So that, iOS app development is a great thing to try. Unfortunately, bugs can spoil even the most interesting app, so make sure that your QA testers check the following things:
- Beta Testing. It’s a must, as your app won’t get popular if it’s not user-friendly.
- Cross-device compatibility. Your app must be compatible with different iOS devices. You have to consider sizes of the gadgets, their screen resolutions, etc.
- Installation – Uninstallation. Before your users start to enjoy your app, they have to install it. If the installation process causes problems, they will just uninstall it, and that’s it. By the way, they should also have no difficulties with removing the app.
- Battery performance and multitasking effects. If the gadget performs different processes at the same time, your app’s functionality may be affected. The problem is that iOS devices have no garbage collectors, so your app may simply stop working in case the system starts thinking that it creates any issues and slows down the whole gadget.
- Offline functionality. Make sure that your users will be able to access their data even when the app is in offline mode.
Here is one more thing to keep in mind – the quality of your app must be great, but the app itself shouldn’t be too complicated, as users don’t usually like this. Oh, and don’t forget that your creation must be approved by an iOS app store. There are very strict rules, and you shouldn’t neglect them – otherwise, your app will be removed from the store. If you are not sure about your team, go for remote testing or DTM – this strategy will also save your time.
