The World Quality Report mentions that “testing is becoming ever more critical as consumers expect a seamless end-user experience across multi-channel applications and devices in an ‘always-on’ world.”

Mobile testing has no doubt exploded in the last four to five years with more users moving towards mobile. Users are very particular on the standards required for a mobile app to be functional. If you don’t get the users’ attention within the first 5 minutes, the user will delete the app without ever coming back to it.
