Testing techniques on the iPad: Application development companies have created and developed thousands of applications for the iPad. You only have to look at the Apple store to see just how many applications there are. Of course most companies want these applications tested and if so then there are a few things you should take into account when testing on your iPad:
- Ensure that you submit your UDID for your iPad if selected to test an application for a project or company as they will need this to add you to the list for testing and register your specific device
- You may have to test using a browser as in Safari on the iPad or as an application that can be installed through iTunes
- Ensure that you test applications in WI-FI and 3G if possible to establish different connections. Some applications may work fine with one connection and not with another.
- Ensure that you test most applications in portrait and landscape modes on the iPad as things may display differently in both leading to potential problems.
- As you test and find problems with applications you may have to take screen shots of errors
- Open any application you wish to take a screenshot of on your iPad
- Hold down the Home button and tap the Power button that is located on the top right hand corner
- You will notice the screen flashing instantly and a clicking sound like a camera taking a photo
- Your screen shot will then have been saved and can be viewed in the Photos area of your iPad
- If you would like to share your photo then you can use the Email photo option and email somewhere from an email set up on your iPad
