How to build an ideal Mobile App Test Plan

‘Mobile App’ is the new buzzword. Then how can one stick to the traditional Test Plan template? The purpose of the Mobile App Test Plan is to define how the testing effort for the App release is planned, executed, and controlled. It is critical to have a rigorous Mobile App Test Plan before the App is deployed. The idea is simple, focus on the value it offers – boil Test planning down to only the essentials and cut all fat and fluff. Test Plan shouldn’t be like any other dead document (resulting in wasted effort) – written, reviewed, referred to a few times and then cast aside as the project moves ahead.

How to handle frames in Selenium Webdriver

Occasionally you will encounter the below error when trying to locate an element. One of the reason might be that the element is present within a frame.

In Software Testing terms, we call it as ‘Defect Status transition’ or a ‘Defect Lifecycle’!

Desktop vs. Mobile | Why Testing Mobile apps is different from Desktop Testing?

Why was this not tested? Aaah! QAs were accustomed to testing Apps only on a selection of devices, but carriers required more money for procurement. OMG!

Take it easy, Developer. It’s not personal!

What they don’t understand is – it’s not about ‘You’, it’s about the ‘Software’!

What’s the average QA Tester Salary | Are you being paid right?
