A known fact is just how evil bugs happen to be to your mobile applications, games and websites. For an app developer, chances are that bugs are the reason behind your low sales, you apps not getting the many downloads you expect of them from the app stores. This is why app testing is necessary for your app development and software development processes. Generally speaking, for you to get the most out of the app testing efforts, you would be advised to get involved with app testing as early as is possible in the development phase of the apps and this as well serves a great deal in helping ensure good quality and lower the overall costs and efforts.
One fact that is well known is that the automated testing methods would be quite effective for the need to validate the requirements and as well reduce on the costs of testing which is achieved through the automated test case generation and this when done as ought to be and as well at the earliest phases of the app development. This said, the other fact to note is that the full automation has its costs that it comes with in tow and this is one that many companies have not been as willing to pay for anyway. But as much as this may be such a reality, the other side that you should not overlook is how costly it would be to fix a bug later in the process and as such it would be advisable for you to factor everything that would be related to app testing right from the beginning of your app development project. There has been this common understanding of app testing and this is that which has assumed that any app can be tested just once and this is when it is already in existence and when it is stable enough for testing. While this has been so held by many for so long, the truth is that testing the elements in an app for development as early as during the development phase is actually the best way out of these and for the record this has a number of benefits to accrue to you.
Generally, it is not advisable to think of testing your apps just a few days to their release to the market for by then, you will be way too late already. You have quite a host of elements about the apps that you will be required to have tested right from the first day you begin the app development, like a number of its aspects, data and functionality features to mention but a few.
