The adoption of smart phones and the usages of mobile applications are increasing rapidly. Consequently, within limited time-range, mobile Internet usages have managed to take over the desktop usages particularly since the first smart phone-touched application released by iPhone in 2007. This paper is proposed to provide solution and answer the most demandable questions related to mobile application automated and manual testing limitations. Moreover, Mobile application testing requires agility… 
On the Exploratory Testing of Mobile Apps
TLDR
Exploratory Testing has shown to be a promising technique to uncover bugs, though test professionals can be better guided to explore their apps and search for bugs in scenarios related to mobile specific events.
