Abstract

Banks have enlarged their vision towards mobile applications to sustain - ‘World inside mobile trends’

E-mobility banking derives the connection between humans and money which involves an easy way to interact with customer,
employees and products in real time from any location

It will act as the new front end for all the banking transactions.

Mobile Banking Applications does not imitate current Desktop environment because of its unique user interface requirements and
business process flows.
The apex challenges to confront in Mobile Apps are :
Integrating mobile banking Apps with existing banking systems
 Supporting different mobile devices is difficult as there is no common platform
Developers are opting for RAD to develop mobile banking apps and deploy multiple versions of software

Proposed Solution(s) -Intro
Pixel resolution and Screen Orientation:
• Screen orientation plays a key role in testing where a rotation of the device from portrait to landscape and vice versa,
testing needs to be done on all pages of the applications.
•
Compatibility Testing will ensure that the application works accurately on every device’s pixel resolution to make sure
that end user will have the best user experience.
Cross platform Testing:
•
There is no common platform to test the mobile application unless it is web-application based on HTML. Mobile
applications should undergo multiple testing in multiple platforms which is time consuming for tester. This is due to the
unavailability of common platform across device.
• Test Automation of mobile applications is the only key which connects multiplatform across device. They must built test
cases that can be easily maintained, reused and ported to multiple mobile platforms

Proposed Solution(s) -Intro
Network Limitation :
• The Proxy through which the application interacting with the server and the interaction will be optimized by the network
provider to make content more suitable for specific devices
• So, testing should be done on real handset interaction with real network operators to ensure the perfect end user experience
User input method :
• Banking Mobiles Applications frequently necessitate the user to browse and it does rely on the device input method
• In Touch screens and Non- touch screens devices are available in present market. If you want to make sure that your
application is suitable for everyone, testing must be done on numeric keypad, QWERTY keypad, TrackBall device and
touch screen device
Security Testing:
• Tester must ensure security testing is properly done on mobile applications.
• The security testing has to be carried out manually on the mobile device.

Application of Solution
The key:
Origination:
Types of Testing:
•Using emulator skins, testing
can be done in replicated pixel
resolution and common screen
orientation on which the
application is expected to run.
•Emulators play a vital role in the
unit testing stage, because it is
capable of simulating any
possible test case scenario in any
mobile device.
•The strategy for mobile
application testing as to follow a
simple portfolio and it should
have a clear strategic focus
•The testing should focus on
having a consistent labeling,
safety and reach ability across
different regions in the world
•The execution phase
•Appropriate testing techniques ,
should be put into use .

•This is one of the basic components of any mobile application testing strategy, as it involves the simplicity of usage
of any features involved in the application.
•Compatibility testing is the process of checking whether the created application is capable of being installed in the
array of main mobile devices available in the market.
