Top 5 Best Mobile Test Management Systems

Underestimating the importance of mobile testing can be a costly mistake. It can make or break your mobile app, sending the app (and all your sleepless nights) down the drain. However, testing apps and websites manually can be very time-consuming even with dedicated testers. This is where mobile test management systems come in!

If you’re looking to streamline the testing phase with some extensive mobile testing services, here are the top 5 best mobile management systems to help you out. Those who want to save on time and man-hours and especially those who depend on reliable test results deal with service providers like QAWerk.

Espresso

Espresso was developed by Google, making it one of the most popular testing frameworks out there for Android mobile apps and devices. You can make UI tests from scratch, or you can record your tests and have the tool convert it into code for you.

The only downside with Espresso is that it currently only supports Android devices and applications. It’s a familiar tool for many native Android app developers as it supports the entirety of Android instrumentation.

TestComplete

TestComplete was developed by Smart Bear, and it’s a testing tool that works with web, desktop, and mobile apps. It can also run tests on different environments: virtual (cloud) devices, physical devices, and emulators.

It can generate both script and scriptless tests, and it works for both manual and automated testing. You can just record a test without having to write any code, and have the recorded test re-play for testing. You can also have this GUI test converted to actual test scripts.

You can use TestComplete to test on a multitude of different devices. It also supports multi-language scripting (JavaScript, C#, C++, Python, VBScript, Jscript, and DelphiScript), so testers won’t have to worry about learning another programming language just to test their mobile apps.

You can also integrate it with some of the most popular CI/CD platforms like Jira, Git, and Jenkins.

21

If you’re into test analytics and self-learning automation, 21 is the testing tool for you. With the assistance of an AI, you can create simple UI and functional tests in about 5 minutes.

The self-learning AI can also update tests, so it practically eliminates the need for manual updates and countless checks for tests required for continuous release apps. It can even point developers and testers to parts of the app that will benefit from more focus and improvements.

It’s SaaS too, so storage space will be one less thing to worry about.

Appium

Appium is an open-source framework that’s quite similar to Selenium. You can use it to make UI tests for both iOS and Android devices, and it supports code reuse across the platforms so you don’t have to worry about writing two different versions of code. It supports native Android browsers and Safari on iOS too. It also supports multiple programming languages (Java, JavaScript, PHP, Ruby, and Python).

Apart from being free to use and modify to your requirements, probably one of the best things about popular open-source tools like Appium is the fact that there wouldn’t be any shortage of help coming from fellow testers and developers. Appium’s forums are quite active too, with all known bugs and issues laid out in GitHub.

MonkeyTalk

MonkeyTalk helps testers and developers make functional and UI tests for iOS and Android apps. You can use it for regression tests as well. It also supports record and playback, using syntax, keywords, and Java execution engines. It’s open-source too. However, it doesn’t support cloud-based or virtual device testing. The device running the testing tool must be on the same Wi-Fi network as the device or the emulator.

Are you still having a hard time choosing the best and most reliable testing system? Try outsourcing testing instead!

The most common problem with mobile testing isn’t really about finding the best testing tools and management systems. It’s about finding the time and resources for the testing itself. If you’re in need of more than just functional and UI testing, you might want to try outsourcing mobile testing.

Those who want to save on time and man-hours and especially those who depend on reliable test results deal with service providers like QAWerk.
