What is an emulator in mobile app testing?
A mobile emulator allows you to test both the software environment a simulator covers AND the underlying hardware configurations that could impact application performance. Emulators can help you test important transaction points in your application, the read/receive ability of the app, and allow you to view how device settings (screen resolution, screen size, etc.) impact the visual display of the app.
Why test on a mobile emulator instead of a real device?
Just like with mobile testing simulators, emulators help you conduct scalable testing of application performance on different devices during your development process. Real devices can still be used in the lead up to your release.
What to look for in a mobile emulator for testing?
Something that makes your life easier from setup through testing.
An ideal mobile simulator has no intense coding, scripting, or time consuming, heavy-lift maintenance required. Simulators should improve your efficiency: meaning from setup through testing your life should get easier.
A tool that enables concurrent testing on multiple device types.
Your end users will be accessing your work on a variety of device types. Your mobile simulator should help you catch bugs quickly and in-cycle by empowering the team to run multiple tests across multiple device types.
Something that positively impacts your server expenses.
Testing shouldn’t be a bottleneck or a cost center…it should be a competitive advantage! Mobile simulators can and should reduce the costs usually associated with testing while still giving you valuable insight into regressions, bugs, and other unwanted behavior.
