The fast-changing mobile technology presents new challenges for mobile application testing professionals. The old technology is becoming outdated quickly, and manufacturers are developing new platforms rapidly to stay ahead of their competitors.

Mobile test automation is challenging but even more challenging is the huge availability of mobile test automation tools in the market. That makes it hard to choose what suits best for what.  Free or paid, for a native app or web app?

So, it is important that the test engineer keeps experimenting with various automation testing tools and uses the right tool for the right situation.

Mobile device screens are relatively small and developers feel the need to present more data than possible to fit in the screen. It is challenging to keep the interaction clean and simple for the user, and at the same time display all the necessary information. Font size and readability are other challenging factors of usability. When testing mobile applications it’s important to pay attention to the size of click areas and to ensure that all content is readable.
