How to Break Mobile Applications

As mobile devices, tools, operating systems and web technologies rapidly evolve, testers must quickly adapt their thinking in this changing domain. Testers often struggle to find important vulnerabilities and bugs in mobile applications due to lack of guidance, experience and the right resources. During my career in the mobile testing field, I’ve come across numerous bugs related to native mobile applications. Looking at these bugs, I started categorizing them, and have since come up with a mind map. This mind map helps to provide a quick tour of your mobile application and find vulnerabilities as quickly as possible (http://www.rajsubra.com/2015/01/16/native-app-testing-cheat-sheet-quick-tour/ ). This could be used for smoke testing, acceptance testing or even production testing after your application is live on the different app stores. This session will give attendees hands-on experience by using these mobile testing approaches in real applications to get quick feedback.
