As you prepare to set your app live, there are some universal best practices for testing your app.
Ensure your app looks & functions how you expect, and in the best way possible for your users!
Your app has a unique set of code and therefore quirks in behavior and the occasional bug sometimes crops up. Whether this is your first-ever app submission or it's your 8th update this week, it's vital that you test your app before hitting the "Submit" button.
What to Test
Short answer: everything! Run through all of the expected behaviors of your end-users. Simulate reading an article with ads. Watch a full video. Check all of your banners are viewable on the carousel. Log in as a user. Sign up as a new user. If your app is already live, test what's unique to your app and what's new in this version. You get the idea!
Here's a quick checklist for efficient app testing.
- In-app purchases and subscriptions
- 3rd party user authentication (Database Integration)
- Ads (Article and Video)
- Branding and logos
- UI Design (colors, icons, images)
- All CTAs
Test all functionality across devices (don't forget tablets!) and platforms.
