Mobile versions of sites have become popular for the recent few years. It is convenient to read news, select and order products or services while walking in a park or street, sitting in an airport or public transport.

Unfortunately, web site testing on mobile devices and mobile application testing show that mobile web sites are not as good as desired. A professional software testing company would confirm that the main reason of imperfections of mobile web applications is that originally web technology has been elaborated for personal computers.

Web software engineers got used to the fact that the users interact with web applications by means of keyboard and mouse, and personal computers have large screens.

But the users interact with mobile devices by tapping and gesturing, and screens of tablets and smartphones are much smaller than screens of personal computers. Hardly anyone often uses keyboard or mouse for work on a mobile device nowadays.

Common Interaction Related Problems of Mobile Web Applications Are:

  • touch objects can be too little for tapping;
  • the objects can be too numerous and piled up; that is why it’s hard to activate the required one by tapping or gesturing;
  • the touch targets are aside from the objects and the user has to wonder where to tap;
  • the objects do not respond as the code is not adjusted to mobile technology.

It is necessary to consider such defects, executing manual testing of a mobile web program. Those, who are involved in mobile testing, know that such defects prevent from enjoying good user experience.
