Mobile Usability Testing

November 4, 2015

mobile testingEven a perfectly functioning product can fail in the marketplace because users don’t love it. The modern user is pretty “spoiled” with highly-intuitive and user-friendly solutions. That’s why Mobile Usability Testing is so crucial in today’s “app” world. Actually, usability is a cornerstone of all successful apps.

There is a fine line between subjectivity and objectivity in any usability testing, but with the experienced usability experts and mobile testers, the high probability the product will be accepted by end users can be dramatically increased.

We recommend two levels of evaluation. During the first level we distribute the application to a group of common users and senior mobile testers. Their feedback is organized and categorized according to a predefined checklist. They rate the application as they would in a store, using stars and freeform comments. The second level compares the user interface with a sample set of similar applications already available on the market and arrange – benchmark according to the best commonly-used usability practices.

The tangible deliverables from a Mobile Usability Testing effort include specific suggestions and advice on what to improve to enhance the overall usability of the mobile solution.

Usability can be described in terms of five usability attributes: Understandability, Learnability, Operability, Attractiveness and Usability Compliance.  To Learn More about our Mobile Testing Guidance download our Mobile Testing Best Practice Guide .
