Test Conditions Your Users Experience

Your app may work in ideal conditions. But today’s users also need it to work in ALL conditions. Before it ends up on a user’s screen, an app should be tested against varying user conditions and environments.

Go beyond the functional testing of features under generic conditions. Give your mobile app testing the intense, real-world user-condition testing they deserve with Perfecto’s Real User Simulation.

Test mobile apps under the same environmental profiles as your users. These include:

  • Location
  • Preferred devices
  • Network coverage
  • Other apps running in the background
  • Degraded network conditions
  • Conflicting apps
  • Call and text interruptions

With Perfecto Real User Simulation, you’ll test conditions your users experience for vastly smarter, more targeted testing.

Why You Need to Test User Conditions

The mobile landscape is highly fragmented and complex. It holds unexpected environmental conditions and interruptions that can impact application quality and performance.

Consider the varying quality of network conditions. LTE, 5G, Wi-Fi, and device and OS-specific issues all need to be tested, as do conditions such as multiple apps running in the background and location changes.

You need to test all user conditions prior to a release. This allows you to prevent as many escaped defects as possible and all the extra work they add on.

Organizations find it hard to triage failures following an execution with or without continuous integration (CI). Planning, management, and optimization of test cycles based on proper insights is a significant challenge for DevOps teams.

With Real User Simulation testing, teams can test for all conditions users will experience and eliminate the cascade of extra work that accompanies escaped defects.

Develop Inside Your Favorite IDE – Integrate with Selenium and Appium

Perfecto Real User Simulation is part of our smart testing platform. It works inside the mobile app development and testing environment you already rely on. Learn more about Perfecto’s integrations.

Use Point of Interest (POI) Testing to Find Blind Spots

POI tests will help you pinpoint specific performance and functionality issues such as an online purchase taking too long or Facebook eating away at CPU.

Real User Simulation will provide detailed dashboard views and reporting so that you can identify and fix the issues before you release them.
