Top 10 Mobile Performance Testing Tools

Challenge for brands: how to offer a seamless, fast, and user-friendly mobile experience?

App users have a low tolerance for slowness, with a reported 43% of users unhappy if they have to wait longer than three seconds for an app to load. ([App Samurai])

It’s not enough to ensure that your mobile app functions properly, but also to test how it behaves on different devices, under heavy user load, different network connections, etcetera. It’s equally important to test different metrics on both the client-side as well as the server-side. This is where finding the right tool or set of tools for mobile performance testing is essential.

After extensively researching, I’ve put together a list of top-rated mobile performance testing tools and provided an overview of each below.

Approaches to Mobile Application Testing

Mobile application testing is the process of every application generated for handheld devices has to go through. This is to assure a specific level of the place before a request is delivered into the marketplace (app store/ play store). Mobile Application Testing is one of the software testing of applications on mobile devices to verify that the properties are running easily in terms of their operations, usability, functions, operations, and interaction. Looking for Mobile Testing Training in Chennai? Step into FITA, We are the best leading institution for Mobile Testing Course in Chennai.

There are two different approaches for Mobile Application testing based on their performance, they are:
• Manual testing
• Automated testing

Manual Testing

Manual testing, as the title implies, is a human method, majorly concentrated on user activity. Evaluation and Report of the application’s security, functionality usability arranged through the factor of a user in an explorative method.
This assures that your statement lives up to a model of user-friendliness. This is a type of measurement that is frequently time-consuming as enthusiasts manage to get the opportunity to become identified.
Twenty percent of app testing must be arranged manually through the guidance of beta and alpha releases and remaining must be motorized.
let’s move on to automated mobile application testing.

Automated Testing

Automated testing is secondary access to mobile application testing. In this method, an array of samples tests are structured. It should generally cover 80% of the testing process. The percentage is not required, but a common guideline developed in the software industry. Here is a list of test events that are frequently achieved through this critical method –

• Automate various tedious standard test cases.
• Automate test cases that can be quickly programmed
• Automate test cases that are impossible to perform manually
• Automate test cases for regularly used functionality
• Automate test cases with expected results

Top 10 Automation Testing Tools: 2020 Edition

The demand for delivering quality software faster — or “Quality at Speed” — requires organizations to search for solutions in Agile, continuous integration (CI), and DevOps methodologies. Test automation is an essential part of these aspects. The latest World Quality Report 2018–2019 suggests that test automation is the biggest bottleneck to deliver “Quality at Speed,” as it is an enabler of successful Agile and DevOps adoption.

Test automation cannot be realized without good tools; as they determine how automation is performed and whether the benefits of automation can be delivered. Test automation tools is a crucial component in the DevOps toolchain. The current test automation trends have increased in applying artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to offer advanced capabilities for test optimization, intelligent test generation, execution, and reporting. It will be worthwhile to understand which tools are best poised to take advantage of these trends.****

How to Test Mobile App Performance: 3 Key Components - DZone Performance

You’ve probably interacted with an app on your phone or tablet that’s slow, takes a long time to load, freezes, or even crashes on you altogether.

Frustrating, right?

On the flip side, you can probably think of an app that you love to use because from day one, it’s never given you any trouble.

Or maybe you never paid any mind to an app that works quickly, because isn’t that how it’s supposed to be?

So, what causes one app to be crash-prone and another, fast, and reliable?

Whether an app has good or bad performance depends on three factors: the backend, the network, and the app itself running on the device.

A developer or mobile tester can measure the performance of an application in different scenarios.

For example, they can test for when there’s a concurrency of users on the app at the same time, on different devices (which vary in hardware resources and screen sizes), and multiple networks such as 3G, 4G, Wifi, and more.

The reality is that many variables affect the performance of a mobile application. Moreover, a user may have a very bad experience with your app and the cause might not even have anything to do with the code or its implementation.

But, by running performance tests for each of these three factors, you’ll be able to identify problems and optimize your app for the best user experience possible.

Keep reading as we’ll cover the different types of tests for each factor, what to measure, and what tools are available to help you along the way.

1st Mobile Performance Factor: The Backend

A mobile app’s backend architecture is generally based on an application server, a web server, and a database.

**When it comes to the backend, the things related to performance that are important to know when an app is under load are the server’s response times, database queries times, and the server’s resource usage. **

Using this information, it’s easier to detect issues such as:

  • High server response times
  • Bottlenecks or breakpoints in the database and application server resources
  • Poor implementation of escalation policies

So what kind of tests are normally run to check the app’s backend performance? Load tests.

This is when you simulate load on the backend in different ways, whether it be through stress testing, peak testing, endurance testing, load testing, etc.

In general, the objective of these tests is to understand how the backend systems of an app behave and handle a certain volume of concurrent users.

Several tools allow you to load test your mobile app. The most commonly used ones include:

Apache JMeter – the number one open-source load testing tool

Gatling– a developer-friendly, open-source load testing tool with scripts written in Scala

BlazeMeter – a cloud performance testing platform that scales your JMeter or Gatling tests for a greater amount of concurrent users

2nd Mobile Performance Factor: The Network

With regards to the network that the device is connected to, there are two key things to measure: latency and bandwidth.

  • Latency is the time that elapses when information is sent on the network (measured in milliseconds).
  • Bandwidth is the maximum capacity (the amount of data) that can be transmitted through the network (measured in bits per second).

For mobile performance, the lower the latency and the higher the bandwidth, the better.

An app’s performance can vary depending on, for example, whether it’s connected to a 3G network or a 4G network, and unfortunately, this is beyond an app developer or tester’s control.

But, it is possible to incorporate the network during the mobile app performance testing process, simulating the different types of networks and measuring their impact on the response times, both on the server-side and the client-side.

In-house Tool for Performance Testing

In the software development cycle, testing is one of the important criteria. There are many tools available in this space for testing such as Junit, Jmeter, manual, automation, and many performance testing tools. Some of these tools are third-party tools and have a cost-heavy license for the company to manage. For small start-up companies, these license costs can be unbearable. We analyze a tool to make the process easier and more cost effective.

About the Tool

The tool can have two parts. One part can be making a main interface web page where developers/testers can fill in the details and start testing. The other part can be the onboarding template page, where the team can onboard new applications, templates, and stacks so that it appears on the main interface page.
