5 Tips for Android Automation Testing to Avoid Slowdowns in Development

To butcher a racing analogy: there is as much time to be saved in avoiding the brakes as there is in flattening the accelerator. Android automation testing itself will save developer-hours on the release cycle, but to really get to market faster, we need to implement the kind of Agile testing environment that prevents delays and slowdowns.

Just like in auto racing, our Android automation testing is about achieving balance between speed and overall performance—or in our industry, between speed and quality.

Capitalize on Automated UI Testing and Stay Competitive

User interface testing is the greediest stage of your QA process. Manual testing is a time- and resource-consuming process and, hence, can push your product release cycle.

Unfortunately, it is one of the few phases of QA that cannot be completely solved with an automated testing silver bullet. Even the accelerating technology of AI in automation testing still requires engineers to manually identify UI elements before automation test scripts can be run.

There are, however, ways to capitalize on automated UI testing that may boost your competitive edge.

Web Application Testing Checklist to Balance Manual and Automation Testing

Time, cost, and quality. These three elemental forces of software development influence every aspect of our QA process. They are the practical realities that, ultimately, determine how we prepare a web application to meet the expectations and needs of our users.

Each point on a web application testing checklist has to be assessed in reference to the timelines of our release cycle, the constraints of our budget, and the rigorous nature of the testing needed to ensure a robust and satisfying final product.

Which UI Automation Testing Tools Are Best for Your Product?

User interface testing is your opportunity to walk a proverbial mile in your customer’s shoes. It is the phase where you have to put aside your intentions and focus on the market reality of your product. UI testing prioritizes the results that matter in the end: the customer’s experience of the product.

Pros and Cons of Selenium Automation Testing

Selenium is one of the great success stories of the open source era. The web app testing framework has been with us since shortly after the turn of the millennium and has grown to become the dominant QA tool in its field.

It is a symbol of the revolutionary potential we all once saw on the internet, a free tool built and modified by and for a community of developers that stretches around the world.

What You Need to Know About Automation Testing Tools

Automated quality assurance (QA) testing is a rigorous, thorough process that can help spot defects better than manual testing alone. Automated tools offer higher-quality testing, can expand your QA coverage, and can help you release software faster. If you have released software only to have customers report many bugs, consider automated QA testing. It can make your future releases better by ensuring software runs correctly, efficiently, and effectively before release.

When to Use Manual and Automation Testing: A Quick Guide

The existence of both manual and automation testing gives the illusion of choice.

Technically, you can view them as interchangeable, that one is the faster version of the other. Once you understand how each QA testing approach operates, its strengths and weaknesses, you find there is no choice. Instead, the idea is to know when to apply them, not if you should choose one over the other.

What are the Disadvantages of Automation Testing in Quality Assurance?

Speed comes at a cost.

The idea of racing through the QA process and achieving time savings near the stressful end of the software development cycle is very attractive. The hard work of your core DevOps phase is behind you, and your thoughts turn to getting the product to users. So automation testing may be your first instinct for QA. Automation testing is indeed the fastest form of QA currently available, and will cut your testing time by 95%.

What Are the Limitations of Automation Testing?

We all have our limitations. Every business model we use has them, as does every system we engage to guide us through software development and quality assurance. The key is to understand these limitations and to overcome them.
