Usability Testing

Usability Testing

Every year our team gains experience testing new applications:  web sites, mobile apps  on iOS or Android mobile platforms and also wearable device applications. When we test an app our goal is to make sure that all functional requirements are implemented and work as expected, we also provide feedback and advice where the usability of the application can be improved based on our experience testing not only a wide variety of applications but with some of the largest brands in the world.

Functionality Testing

Functionality Testing

Before we begin testing the functionality of a web site or a mobile application, we create custom test cases for the project. We go through a detailed checklist and include test scenarios to make sure all links are working properly and that the pages are loading properly across all browsers and platforms. We also go through all possible user workflows for the applications we test.

Our goal is to provide comprehensive test reports to our clients to help them build and deliver high quality products to their customers.
