Mobile is ubiquitous. We use phones to check the weather, to read the paper, and take pictures. There are now more phones that adults on Earth. Despite the complete diffusion of Mobile, there are still challenges to creating ideal mobile experiences.
Testing remotely has some powerful pluses. Being a fly on the wall helps you understand the unmediated, natural course of actions of your users. Services like Loop11 make remote testing on a computer easy. But, there isn’t a perfect solution on mobile. Many resourceful testers have figured out work arounds to capture similar feedback.
It does make me feel like a resourceful entrepreneur needs to figure out a way to do remote testing of mobile apps in the way that one uses Loop11. After all, remote testing is a way to understand how people might really use something.
