The concept of Application software has emerged with the constantly rising need of mobile users to be in regular touch with internet. It is ideal for mobile devices like personal digital assistants, enterprise digital assistants or mobile phones. These applications can be uploaded over phones during manufacturing and delivered as applications by the use of server-side or client-side processing.
To improve the overall user experience of mobile app in India development of features like arrays of screen sizes, hardware specifications, and configurations. The success of apps depends on the user interface that caters to both hardware and software. The input by the user manipulates a system and output signals its after-effects.
The mobile will get signals from the activity of the user in a mobile application. The features of the User Interface are to attain limited attention of users, keystrokes minimization, and task oriented with minimal functions. The front-end defines the User Interface that entirely depends on backend formatting.
The backend facilitates data routing, security, authentication, authorization, working off-line, and service orchestration. The middleware components include servers of mobile application, MBaaS and service oriented infrastructure.
The front-end development tools are UI design tools, SDK for accessing the features of device and support to cross-platforms. The back-end servers that provide the set of reusable services which are centrally managed can be listed as integration with back-end systems, user authentication-authorization, data services and reusable business logic.
Any application on the device containing any vital information needs to be secured. The security features that are to be added on the mobile to give protection are app wrapping for security, data encryption, client actions and reporting and statistics. The testing of mobile applications will be implemented by the following tools Google Android Emulator, The official Android SDK Emulator, MobiOne Developer, TestiPhone, iPhoney, BlackBerry Simulator and Windows UI Automation.
The Android emulator that runs on Windows PC is an independent application without downloading and installation of Android SDK. The mobile device emulator copies both hardware and software features of mobile device. A mobile web integrated development environment assist developers to code, test, debug, package and deploy mobile Web applications to mobile devices.
The testing of iPhone web applications is done using Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 2 and Safari 3 in TestiPhone whereas iPhoney provides a pixel-accurate web browsing environment that does not simulate iPhone but designed for developers aspiring to create 320 × 480 websites to be used in iPhone. Now to simulate the functionality of BlackBerry products to test software, screen, keyboard and trackwheel BlackBerry Simulator should be used. The Microsoft or Windows UI Information technology requires Windows Automation API 3.0, it is also pre-installed on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and later versions of Windows.
The tools include eggplant that is GUI-based automated test tool for all operating systems and devices across mobile application. The test automation tools required in mobile, web and desktop apps are looked after by Ranorex and automation tools to test mobile and web apps on Real mobile devices is known as Testdroid.
