After you build it, you've got to fine tune your app. These testing methods will help you ready your app for prime time.

Emulators & Simulators

Using emulators and simulators during development allows you to get a rough idea of how your app will look and perform in a variety of devices without having to buy a bunch of phones/tablets and incur a lot of data charges.

Unit & System Testing

When you develop a module or section of functionality, you’ll want to do unit testing to see if that set of code behaves as you expect. By comparison, system testing tests the app as a whole.

User Testing

There are basically two types of user testing for mobile. Usability testing is done to find out if there are issues that keep the app from being user-friendly. User acceptance testing is performed to allow users to uncover previously undiscovered defects by using the app in real-world usage.

Accessibility Testing

After you have the UI set, test to make sure all the code complies with accessibility standards.
