Explore the Importance of Performing Agile Mobile App Beta Testing
Beta testing your mobile app is an important phase of the development process. When you beta test your mobile app, you are answering a crucial question: Will this software meet user expectations, and should we release it? But that traditional approach to beta testing before you release a new app can be problematic considering the new and more agile pattern of the continuous updating and modifying of mobile apps.
Customers have neither the time, patience, nor inclination to tolerate app developers continuously working out bugs and defects. In fact, according to Flurry Analytics, you only have a couple of minutes to convince users your mobile app is something they need to use regularly. With such pressure, your development team and product managers need a continuous beta testing process for your mobile app that can help you meet user expectations again and again, not just upon initial release.
There are many benefits to beta testing, particularly when it is performed by crowdtesters. Crowdtesting is the practice of placing your software in the hands of real people who will give you necessary and important information on how to improve your mobile app.
