About Mobile Application Testing Techniques and Tools

The onset of mobile devices and mobile application development has necessitated advances in mobile application testing techniques and tools. Mobile application testing must be performed on both software and hardware. With the vast number of devices available, testing on supported devices can often be a challenge so mobile simulators or emulators may be used initially, though often there are defects related to the physical device. Crowdsource techniques are used by some to allow for testing of mobile devices.
