Today, smartphones have turned into a basic necessity for the people and the thing that makes them so popular is the “mobile applications”. The variety of mobile apps available these days provides so many facilities enabling users to do many things using their mobile phone only. Thus, applications have to be perfect as well as secure with smooth functioning and great navigation.
Bugged applications and software are absolutely unacceptable in the current market condition. Bugs are the reason behind the failure and poor functioning of an application. However, it is almost impossible to develop a bug-free application but with proper planning and techniques, it could be minimized to some level.
When it comes to a bugged application many developers are oversensitive and they try to develop bug-free code which is impractical. While they do so, they are actually slowing down the development process. Thus, developers should focus on the core functions of the application instead of focusing on developing completely bug-free applications. Below are some tips to develop bug-free apps.
While developing an application the app’s security should hold the maximum importance so as to protect the user’s vulnerable data. Various tools are used to protect the application from viruses and hackers. Testing plays an important part here. App developers should continuously test an application to deliver users a strong product. This would make a device risk free and block any sensitive data loss.
To develop a bug-free application, an app should be tested during the early developmental stages. Unit testing is a process where each module of the application is tested individually. This is done to make sure that every module functions (together or not) properly.
In this process, a group of developers writes codes concurrently which are then reviewed. This will be helpful in determining errors (if there are any) and makes the app almost bug free. This will increase the productivity along with the quality of the codes.
It is basically the second stage in the software testing where a selected group of audience tests the software product. At this stage, an app can be tested several times helping the developers to identify relevant bugs.
This is an inexpensive mode of testing which helps developers and Mobile App Development companies to focus on end products. This testing is performed in a secure environment with scalable resources which match the testing demands. It supports a wide array of scripts and programming languages. AppThwack, BlazeMeter, and Xamarian are some of the cloud testing tools.
It is always a good strategy to use a debugger for developing a bug-free application. Many IDE’s provide a good debugger where you don’t have to identify and solve bugs only changing code part and few print statements would easily do that.
This tool allows the developer to detect bugs before the users do. Developers can see logs, activities, and events on remote devices helping them to detect unusual performance of the application.
Thus, even though it is impossible to develop a bug-free mobile application, a developer should always try to minimize the bugs and develop a robust & quality app.
