We can divide the modern application testing process into three major categories. The first step is the application development phase, followed by the testing phase, and finally, the production phase. The testing phase is one of the most important processes as it helps the developers to ensure the application is stable and ready to be forwarded to the open users. In the modern app development market, developers can use various advanced technologies to ensure the proper execution of their applications.
To properly verify the performance of an application, it is essential to execute it on real devices. This is because simulation software cannot understand the influence of physical parameters on the performance of an application. For instance, simulation software cannot analyze the behavior of an application based on parameters like low battery, user interaction error, or a broken display. However, maintaining a physical device testing lab is a costly process. The best solution to such a problem is the integration of cloud testing platforms and tools. The benefit of executing the test cases with the help of a cloud testing platform is that developers can receive similar test results while eliminating the test bench and conducting the testing process over the web. We can improve our knowledge about the influence of cloud testing platforms by considering LambdaTest as our benchmark:
For the initial introduction, we can say that LambdaTest is an intelligent unified digital experience testing cloud that enables developers, testers, and businesses to release their apps or products faster with lesser test executive time via ensuring the product’s or application’s quality. LambdaTest allows developers and testers to perform real-time and automation testing across more than 3000+ browsers and OS configurations, making it a top choice among other cloud testing platforms.
Another prominent feature of LambdaTest is enabling developers and testers to perform cross-browser testing on real browsers. The present status of the app development market considers cross-browser testing as the industry standard for ensuring the best performance of web applications. This is because, with the help of cross-browser test cases, the developers can ensure the application’s stability irrespective of random changes in the operating system, device version, or browser version. This platform also has various innovative features like parallel test execution for improving the efficiency of the testing process.
LambdaTest also supports the inclusion of automation test files from various popular frameworks like Selenium and Playwright. While integrating Selenium test files with this platform, the developers can verify their performance on three thousand unique browsers.
While working with Cypress test cases, the developers and testers can execute them on a wide range of browsers simultaneously. LambdaTest is also suitable for verifying the performance of web pages internally hosted by a company. Finally, the integration of real devices with the existing thousands of simulation software helps developers to improve the reliability of the test cases massively.
App developers should also keep themselves updated with all the modern automation testing trends and innovations. In this regard, app companies also have a crucial role in conducting frequent awareness campaigns to spread the required knowledge. Lastly, it is essential to choose the correct framework or tool that can complement the testing practices of a developer.
