QA for application for Iphone and Ipad
      #717213 - 09/29/12 10:45 PM

Hello Everyone:
My company going to delivery a application for mobile device: Iphone and Ipad.

I need do functional testing and regressing testing for the application. The project will be ready for testing in 2-3 weeks.

the development team going to write the code using Xcode
The Operating system for mobile device is iOS5.1
The application is similar to a online store which has
-login, authentication for login,
-search items / tickets for sale,
-order processing (check, cash, credit card payment)
-check out page

1.I am looking for tools and browser plug-in (Chrome, FireFox, IE)and emulator/simulators for the mobile device testing. I also want to find a good tool to perform test automation.

2. what shall I consider when conduct a functional testing for the application.

For 1. I don't have Mac or a Apple laptop at work. I am using window OS at work.

1a.What kind of tools you recommend to use for testing iOS mobile devices?

I did some search in the forum. I found these tools maybe helpful
a)Ripple (Chrome extension)-Can Ripple used to test for iOS mobile devices or its only for Blackberry device?

b)Symbian-is it only for both Nokia devices and iOS device?

c)Selenium 2 offers both iphone and android testing. They are experimental.

d)Sikuli:Sikuli is an open source equivalent of SeeTest from Experitest

e)eggPlant, the GUI based mobile application testing works across all operating systems and devices

2a.Are there any test plans / test matrix sample(s) for mobile device testing? I want to check some reference.

2b.what type of test cases show I prepare to test for log-in authentication, search items, order placement, order processing and checkout page

2c. what should I look for (find potential bugs) when testing the application (e.g. connectivity, scanning the bar-code etc)

Please give me some advises and share your insights with me. If you know the links for good knowledge bases, documentation, articles and blogs, please share with me. Thanks!

You are releasing a product for Apple OS and you don't have any device at work to do the actual testing?

The tool you need is a real Apple device - iPhone or iPad and if the company isn't going to provide you with the proper testing tools, you might seriously consider leaving this job.

Here are some links to some posts on this board and I would recommend you do a search on "iPad" and "iPhone" testing here as there is a lot of really great information:

Automated testing discussion thread

iPad simulation testing discussion - important info

Test Strategy discussion

Article on why testing on the actual device is critical. Real life examples are described.
