Mobile QA is a nightmare for any engineer, designer, product, or whoever’s responsible for testing UX or UI changes to their app. If you’ve QA tested for mobile, you’re likely nodding your head in agreement. If not, you now know why your team was huffing and puffing in the corner while trying to push a new release on deadline.
I know because I’ve been there. I’ve held various roles as an iOS engineer, designer, and product manager on mobile teams (primarily B2C apps) for eight years. Mobile QA testing was once the bane of my existence. So much so, that I, along with my brilliant and supportive co-founders and team, built a solution: waldo.io.
Waldo is your mobile QA process in one tool. It’s designed to help you deliver mobile UX perfection on every device, with every release, every time. It provides automated mobile QA tests that are quick, easy, and reliable. Here’s our story.
We built Waldo because mobile QA is broken. More specifically:
What does this all mean for your business?
Time is money, and small and medium-sized teams have limited resources. Conducting tests yourself means time away from building, designing, selling, etc. If you’re pushing a new release to squash a major bug causing users to churn or abandon their cart, that’s money down the drain.
Most apps push a new release every two weeks. Imagine the time crunch if you have to outsource or start testing your app every ten days. Woof. There has to be a better way.
Here’s a quick video overview of how Waldo works:
To elaborate, small and lean teams should be able to test the apps they poured their heart and souls into on their own, and they shouldn’t have to spend a fortune doing so. They also shouldn’t want to ram their head in the wall in order to deliver a top-notch user experience.
We wanted to make the lives of people doing QA more enjoyable. Heck, we’d make everyone’s life more enjoyable if we could. Why not start with QA folks?
Here’s how it works:
My favorite thing about Waldo is that it allows you to see all your flows and flow changes laid out in an elegant, simple way. Our flows are easy and approachable so anyone on your team – from engineers to product managers to support to marketing – can see and understand what changes were to your app and why.
