Interrupt Testing

Interrupt testing is one of the functional testing types used to verify proper operation of the mobile applications and their adequate response to different interruptions.

Mobile Application Interrupt Test Types

The main goal of this testing type is to determine whether the application is able to function normally, to maintain the clarity and convenience of the interface, not losing entered data in case there’s a risk of deterioration or termination of its operation due to the following reasons:

  • incoming calls;
  • receiving SMS and MMS-messages;
  • connecting headphones and playing audio files
  • cell reception failures;
  • connecting/disconnecting the charger;
  • removing/inserting SD card or battery;
  • operating at a low battery level;
  • receiving notifications from other mobile applications;
  • putting phone in standby mode and reactivating the device;
  • pressing different phone buttons.

These are the most common reasons that may cause issues for the users of mobile applications. Interruption testing is utilized during the product development to make sure the application does not lose its operational properties. This type of testing ensures preservation of the application interface graphics, data integrity and its correct representation, the ability to use the products under critical conditions.

Software Interrupt testing types

When performing software testing we identify the consequences of software (caused by OS code defects) and hardware (related to the device hardware) failures in the stability of the running application. These types of failures include:

  • power off;
  • various failures in the OS operation;
  • connecting/disconnecting of peripheral devices;
  • minimization/expansion of the program;
  • communication failures;
  • launch of other programs.

To test native applications for interrupt, various software testing types are being utilized, such as manual and automated testing methods, “black box” method (testing without access to the program codes) and “white box” method (testing with search for bugs in the product code). 

Manual testing involves the use of real devices and software environments. Automated discontinuity testing is performed using various tools and services, so that all test processes are accelerated, and the results of search for bugs in the software product and factors negatively affecting the application performance become more accurate and reliable. For instance, to conduct interrupt tests on Android-based devices, we use a specialized program to generate random crashes and track how the applications respond to them.

We report all detected errors into bug trackers and rank them by priority in accordance with the verification matrix. Interrupt testing allows our customers to make their developed products more user-friendly, reliable, and attractive for the users.

Why QA Supermarket?

  • Expert Testing on Demand
  • Upfront NDA
  • Transparent Pricing
  • Free Test Plan
  • No Obligations
  • No Overhead
  • No Sales Pitch
  • 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Why do you need professional testing:

  • About 60% of apps fail because of bad quality.
  • Automated testing will not show most of the bugs witch human may get.
  • Most developers are not qualified and not efficient to perform testing of your app.
  • The application must be tested in full – unit test can work, but integration of the all parts of the system can bring lots of surprises (see examples).

Why choose QA Supermarket?

  • Cost effective: Third-party testing on demand reduces expenses for internal QA team and hardware
  • Experienced: All testing is performed manually by highly-trained, knowledgeable experts
  • Transparent: Pricing is provided upfront so you know exactly what you’ll get and what you’ll pay
  • Easy: QA’s interactive dashboard guides you through the process, providing real-time status updates from start to finish
  • Secure: With an upfront NDA, you can be confident we’ll find your bugs while you keep your code

It takes only 3 steps to test your app
