Testing a Windows 8 Modern Applications is interesting and happening space. Having tested couple of these applications made me write this post to share some of the things which are different and need more attention than normal testing approach.
As much as tester is required to understand the intended functionality of the Win8 apps, they need to understand Win 8 Modern App principles themselves thoroughly to really test a true Win 8 app than just any HTML5/XAML application.
Watch here about Windows 8 Modern Application guidelines, you will find many bugs by just validating against these guidelines during tests.
Testing data in your application would be specific to requirements, however some of the important things to consider during different phases of development are listed below in tabular format. This list focuses on QA tasks which are important or different than conventional application testing.
Hope this would help QA community to test Windows 8 Modern Apps better and delight customers!
