In the modern era, test cases are significant for developing quality mobile apps. So, how we can explain Test Case? It is a set of instructions carried out on any application, to determine whether the application's features are performing as expected. The test cases are written by software testers, in addition, unit test cases are written by developers also. In short, a test case outlines how to test a mobile app from different perspectives. So they can describe how the mobile apps should work in normal and abnormal conditions. To improve the quality and reliability of the mobile apps, we need to create proper test cases for the mobile apps and based on the test case, testers validate whether the functionalities are properly working or not.
For end-to-end testing, the tester should have a clear idea of each feature and the functionality of the application. For this reason, they prepare their test cases in advance. In this blog, we are mainly focusing on the benefits of creating test cases for mobile app development and why the test cases are important for delivering mobile apps to the market.
1. Guaranteed the test coverage of the whole application
Test coverage is a term used for measuring the completeness of testing along with the test cases. Testers validate all the features mentioned in the requirement document and can create test scenarios with test cases in the proper way. Based on the test cases, they can test each feature one by one without missing any test case and they can confidently ensure that testing is happening for all the features and able to deliver the mobile app to the clients with satisfaction.
2. Find the Hidden Bugs Earlier
By using these test cases, developers can easily identify the bugs earlier in the development phase if they are going through the test cases. After resolving the bugs, the error rate will be less and they can give more stable and reliable mobile apps.
3. Understand the Application Thoroughly
Test cases include all positive and negative scenarios, and describe all navigation within the application so that any tester or developer can easily get the project idea.
4. Avoid Knowledge Transfer to New Employees
If the test cases are properly documented, then new employees can test with given test cases without any knowledge transfer. This test case is not only useful for the testers but also for the developers. If they are new, they can adapt to the project and understand the scope of the project easily.
5. Time and Cost Saving
Testers invest their time upfront and it leads to time and cost savings in the long run projects. Also, the developers can avoid costly reworks if they find bugs earlier through the test cases.
6. Increased Reliability
Test cases play an important role in ensuring the quality and reliability of mobile apps. By testing through all the different scenarios written on the test cases, they can deliver more reliable mobile apps to the market, thus it leads to client satisfaction, getting excellent reviews, and benefiting the app’s success.
7. Reusable Test Cases
Test cases are reusable in the future, the testers can copy the common test scenarios and they can reduce the time by reusing the test cases. In addition, the testers can recollect it again if there is any gap between the projects. Anyone can refer to the test case for their easiness of understanding the project.
8. More Satisfied Clients and Increase the Company's Profit
If the company gives more stable and reliable mobile apps to the clients, they are happy every time and thus it increases the company's profit. For this to happen, test the mobile app with test cases thoroughly and find the bugs earlier.
