Overview

The news and media company approached Sparity intending to improvise their app’s usability and accessibility and also to help them with the inefficiencies in their mobile application as it had to be totally compatible with most of the devices in the market, with newer OS updates, and versions coming in the marketplace. The News app required end-to-end testing services on the most widely used mobile platforms in the world — iOS and Android. Sparity QA team followed a comprehensive test strategy and performed functional testing, exploratory testing, multilingual testing, usability testing, bandwidth testing, battery usage, etc., to deliver quality apps and enhance user experience.
