What Third Party Elements are Frequently Unsuitable for Mobile Technology?

Any software testing company knows that a lot of facets should be taken into account during mobile software constructing and mobile testing.

Nowadays many web applications have third party elements. They are meant to improve user experience and make the software more useful.

Unfortunately, some third party elements are unsuitable for usage on smartphones and tablets. They can consume too much resource, contain too large files for mobile devices. Web site testing on smartphones and tablets and mobile application testing prove that if a mobile program has at least one of such elements, it will operate poorly.


Unadjusted to Mobile Technology Elements Often Are:

  • advertising content, like banners, images and video;
  • different plugins;
  • some libraries.

Some plugins for web browsers that are convenient and popular on personal computers are not supported on mobile devices, for example, Flash.

At present many libraries and plugins have a mobile version, but the developers may forget to choose it and use version for personal computers that is much bigger.

HTML5 is supported by majority of mobile and desktop browsers. That is why more and more often software engineers prefer using it in web programs.

Specialists in manual and automated testing of mobile software recommend keeping in mind these issues in course of designing a mobile web program.
