Functionality and Usability Testing Resources

GSA's Mobile Application Development Program Helps Agencies Develop Mobile ProductsFunctionality testing verifies that the functions of a product or service is working as intended. Each function is tested by providing appropriate input, verifying the output and comparing the actual results with the expected results. Usability testing measures the ease of use and intuitiveness of a product or service by asking users to perform a task and observing what they do, where they succeed and where they have difficulties.

This article was developed as part of the Mobile Application Development Program. See our general guidelines to testing article for more resources on mobile product testing.
