“Mobile is not the future, it is the NOW. Meet your customers in the environment of their choice, not where it’s convenient to you” 

The mobile domain is increasing rapidly. Ever since the outbreak of covid-19, it has skyrocketed. Mobile Applications presently include all types, from video, real estate, and healthcare to mobile banking apps. We all know that testing mobile apps is quite a complex process.   

Numerous platforms, operating systems, testing scenarios, and various network connections and carriers are in the picture for mobile applications. According to a report shared by Market Data Forecast, the global smartphone market was valued at USD 378.29 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to reach USD 493.13 billion by 2026, with a CAGR of 6.85% during the conjecture period 2022-2027.   

At BugRaptors, we believe digital progress is all about the future. It is an environment where users, customers, and business owners could interact in the most effective manner, simplifying lives and adding value to digital ventures. With that being said, it becomes extremely necessary that quality at all levels of mobile development must be considered to ensure the required output can be fetched at all the times.   

Thus, it becomes necessary to understand mobile application testing and have the right knowledge of the test tools that can streamline the entire test process for rapid deliveries and optimum user-experience.
