Today is “Share a mobile testing blog post” day!
30 Days Of Mobile Testing, day 4: Share a mobile testing blog post with a mobile developer or designer.
I don’t follow a lot of blogs. My digital method of obtaining test knowledge goes through Google, and through whatever articles my colleagues or connections share on social media. I don’t enjoy traversing through endless mails or RSS feeds with notifications of new blogs that I might find useful.. So I just don’t.
So for this post, I had to go into the great Internet. The biggest problem with that is that the first 10 pages of results are from larger companies who know their SEO. So the smaller, and interesting articles, are harder to come by.
I’m sharing a blog post on usability testing for mobile devices by Hannah from UserTesting. The article is from 2014 so it’s a little outdated, but it’s a library of brilliant articles and blog posts to get started on usability testing on mobile devices.
There’s everything from the basics of usability, what’s special about usability testing on mobile devices, to presentations, books and courses. It’s a very nice start if you’re curious about the subject.
I love usability testing. I love the different processes, methods and the way you really need to think and empathize with the users. I’m working on small app usability test projects for a Swedish company, and it’s so much fun. More about that in later posts!

P.S. If you happen to know a great way to keep yourself updated with relevant and great blog post in a non-obtrusive and time-efficient way, please let me know!
