Bugs are evil for your mobile applications, games and websites. They surely are the ultimate reason of why your app don’t get 100 million downloads from app markets. That’s why you need to do app testing. To get the most out of your testing efforts, getting involved with app testing as early as possible in development phase is the best way to ensure good quality, on time and with less overall effort and costs.
Several things change while your app is getting implemented: The user interface and usability, graphics, overall functionality, new language supports, privacy policies, use of external resources, and many other things. It is critical to understand that even if 10% of your code changes, or some new features is added to app, you still need to test 100% of features for regression. More than ever, having a solid testing strategy – and properly built test cases – are vital in success of your app.
The quality of mobile applications is crucial – and should be always monitored. Frankly, you should be extremely interested in quality of your soon-to-be published or updated application at Google Play or App Store. If you app delivers a bad user experience those disappointed users won’t be kind and get you out of the hook – no matter how much they have used/liked/loved your app in the past. The earlier you test, the earlier you find faults, and the earlier you fix those problems and win the trust of users.

The Google Play has become an overwhelming distribution channel for developers building their next-big-things, either in forms of applications, games or even services. This ever-expanding marketplace gives developers a global reach and target coverage of hundreds of different Android devices on a rapidly growing and changing platform.
However, due to variety in Android OS/platform versions, fragmentation does exist. Android fragmentation is known to cause multiple and incompatible versions of the system specific to the OEM and that causes applications and games to work differently (or wrongly) on many Android devices.
