    1. Functional Testing- Functional testing ensures that the application is working as per the requirements. Most of the test conducted for this is driven by the user interface and call flows.

    2. Laboratory Testing- It is done by simulating the complete wireless network. It is performed to find out any malfunction when a mobile application uses voice and/or data connection to perform some functions.

    3. Performance Testing- This testing process is started to check the performance and act of the application under certain conditions such as low battery, bad network coverage, low available memory, simultaneous access to applications server by several users and other conditions. Performance of an application can be affected from two sides: applications server side and clients side. Performance testing is carried out to check both.

    4. Memory Leakage Testing- When a computer program or application is unable to manage the memory Memory leakage happens,it is allocated resulting in poor performance of the application and the overall slackening of the system. As mobile devices have significant constraints of available memory, memory leakage testing is crucial for the proper functioning of an application

    5. Interrupt Testing- An application may face several interruptions in the time of functioning like incoming calls or network coverage outage and recovery. The different types of interruptions are:
      • Incoming and Outgoing SMS and MMS

      • Incoming and Outgoing calls

      • Incoming Notifications

      • Battery Removal

      • Cable Insertion and Removal for data transfer

      • Network outage and recovery

      • Media Player on/off

      • Device Power cycle

      These interruptions should be able to handle in an application by going into a suspended state and resuming afterwards.

    6. Usability testing- This type of testing is to verify the application fulfills its goals or not and getting a favorable response from users. This is important as the usability of an application is its key to commercial success.

    7. Installation testing- Some mobile applications come pre-installed on the device whereas others have to be installed from the store. This type of testing verifies that the installation process of an application goes smoothly without the user having to face any difficulty. This testing process covers installation, updating and uninstalling of an application.

    8. Certification Testing- Each mobile device needs to be tested against the guidelines set by different mobile platforms to get a certificate of compliance.
