I believe that QA engineer could do much more that just tapping the device screen and exploring how the UI responds. So, let’s take an iOS app, xCode with Instruments and see which information could be retrieved. Energy log, Time Profiler, Activity Monitor… all these items might sound messy for the first time, but let me show you how beneficial their use could be for the testing and for the quality of the product.
In the talk I’ll briefly describe additional features which are crucial for the end user but may slip away from the tester’s eye. After, I’ll demonstrate how you as a QA engineer can test it, analyze and improve. Finally, we’ll discuss whether QA needs all these things or we intrude into iOS developer territory.
