About the Client (Based in Seattle, USA):

Bugs !! The client was facing ripple effects and losses due to this issue and it was delaying the release of the App. Common problems associated with it were crashing of the program, non performance and possible damage to the hardware.
What We Did:
We started out with a test strategy to perform different kinds of testing in order to find the number of bug issues.
Step 1: Functional Testing which involved getting down to the nitty gritties validating and invalidating smallest of units as per requirements.
Step 2: Performance testing which was essential for Devops and continuous integration workflows.
Step 3: Compatibility testing across various computing environments.
Step 4: Behaviour testing in addition to functional testing to verify and find loopholes in the external behaviour of the app.
We found and reported 38 issues major in Android (24) and iOS (14) from the production build.
Technology Stack / Testing tools used:
Ice Cream Sandwich
The identification of issues helped the company to resolve the issues and achieve the release date faster with
- All issues getting resolved before the production release
- Enhanced performance of the app across devices
- Unparalleled customer experience
Till today, the App has crossed more than 50L+ downloads worldwide.
