Our latest two apps “Eye Colour Changer Photo Booth” and “Perfect Smile: Teeth Whitening” have just been launched after completing extensive beta testing. Beta testing allows you to access a wider range of real users and devices under real conditions that developers do not otherwise have access to.
Beta testing is an integral part of the app development journey providing valuable feedback that facilitates enhancements to the product before release allowing opportunity to address the user’s needs. It is also a big milestone that marks many iterations and hours of hard work coming together.
Ongoing testing during the build is crucial for the quality of the product, however beta testing is like the cherry on top. This phase does not need to be complex and cumbersome. Keeping the process simple and having a defined set of outcomes and acceptance criteria is key to the success.
In our experience there are 3 key benefits in beta testing mobile apps.
1. Identifying issues with devices and configurations
2. Perspective from third party
3. Cost reduction
We highly recommend that all new apps be beta tested through the App Store. This way it is mandatory that all components need to be ready and the users can experience the app in its entirety.
Our goal for beta testing is to avoid negative reviews and have better customer satisfaction. Hope this blog provides some insights. Drop us a note if you have any comments or questions. Happy beat testing.
