Re: For mobile application testing, do you head to the wild or to the lab?

Maggie Milton

The main challenge that in-the-lab practices fail to address is how to fit user experience into the overall testing effort.

I fully agree with this statement, thorough testing in the lab can results in an excellent product, from a functional point of view, but you're only halfway through. You need not only a functional product, you need a user friendly one, and for this you have to go "in the wild".

Sometimes the bugs initially found in mobile app testing can appear small and insignificant, whereupon deeper investigation uncovers bigger problems.” I have been in situations where non-testers look at these “insignificant” probing but were surprised when I later on pointed out big issues after my investigation was through. Now you may choose “wild” or “lab”.
