What to Expect with Testlio’s Regression Testing
Have you modified your code to address a change in requirements? Or, perhaps you’ve added a new feature? What about a recent fix to address a defect or performance issue? In any of these cases, it helps to take a pass of your software to ensure you’ve not impacted functionality. What is regression testing if not to assure that zero unwanted changes in your app functionality occur after changing software code?
With Testlio, you can expect rapid results with our tried and true regression testing capability.
Deep diveAs part of your onboarding, we offer an end-to-end, full pass regression test to ensure we understand the entire app and the scope of a full pass. This step allows us to pick apart your app and learn the complete functionality.
Lighten the loadWe then lighten your workload by creating and managing your tests within the Testlio Test Management Tool.
Flexible approachWe align ongoing regression testing with your needs by conducting the most efficient testing runs, including: 1) Smoke tests 2) New feature testing 3) Prior test cases execution to ensure new code changes do not impact existing functionalities 4) A mix of regression and focused functional testing on new changes for acceptance criteria (AC) validation.
VerifyWe verify bug fixes on different devices while running your test cycles.
ExploreFor many clients, we also perform exploratory testing with every test pass, which finds the best issues and delivers the most value.
App Regression Testing Examples
Major U.S. Publisher
One of Testlio’s media clients, a top-three U.S. newspaper by circulation, is a 10 most installed Magazine and Newspaper app available on a variety of Apple and Android devices and OS, including phones, tablets, voice, and wearables. The app provides subscribers breaking and personalized news, streaming video, games, podcasts, local weather updates, and more.
As an advertising-driven business, our client must track user behaviors like stories and videos viewed, ads clicked, display mode selected, browser and device type, and 100s of other actions and preferences.
- Testlio’s regression testing process began with an end-to-end pass of the app to identify the full scope of functionality.
- We then created 100s of test cases and uploaded them into the Testlio Test Management Tool (TMT) to manage future tests.
- With a cadence to match the client’s agile development process, Testlio incorporates ongoing analytics testing into the regression tests to assess and validate if expected actions align with actual behaviors.
- Testlio also uses Charles Proxy to assure all the data is accurately recorded within their analytics tracking. This includes tracking such as:
- The stories and videos clicked and viewed
- If the ads appearing where, when, and in the proper format that they are supposed to appear
- If the served ads are recorded in the backend
Testlio’s media clients need ad data for revenue purposes and trust our end-to-end regression testing capability to get the job done.
Leading Global Provider of Hotel Accommodations
Our client, a leading provider of hotel accommodations worldwide, is a top 25 best-rated travel app on the Apple App Store and a Google Play Editors’ Choice winner with over 10 Million installs.
Their sophisticated travel app offers tremendous value to users. Features and services include great deals, a rewards program, in-depth sort and filter options, a variety of secure payment methods, voice search options, notifications, and many other features.
Testlio helps augment their small in-house QA team who had been taking up to three weeks to perform manual regression testing. Given the frequency of app updates and code changes, they would typically get a release candidate and start all over again.
Testlio’s do it for me (DIFM) approach to managed QA testing immediately took the pressure off the in-house team so they could focus on higher-level testing. On an ongoing basis, we assign 20 testers to work in 2 to 3-hour bursts to knock out the regression testing overnight or over weekends. We also provide them with much needed POS/localization testing when needed. Finally, Testlio provides comprehensive device, OS, and real user app version upgrade coverage, as not all of their users immediately install the latest updates.
Crowdsourced regression testing is more efficient than adding additional full-time testers and provides the speed and flexibility necessary for today’s continuous development initiatives.
