Tap into Mobile Application Testing gives you a lot of insight into testing mobile applications. It covers all the relevant topics with ample details and answers all WHYs and HOWs of mobile application testing. Informative, concise and enjoyable.... is how I would describe this book!" - Ruma Dak, Software Test Lead
Jonathan Kohl has the ability to talk about testing in a way that avoids fancy buzzwords. He has experience enough to know what is important and how to get that through. This book will be helpful to both experts, who need inspiration and new ideas, and to new testers who want to get started with the craft. There are enough hands-on examples and tips to get you far in how you work with testing. Tap Into Mobile Application Testing builds on existing ideas on testing and extends it into the mobile domain in a great way. I can recommend this book to any role that wish to learn more about how to go about testing in the mobile domain. - Martin Jansson, Software Testing Consultant
I love this book. Not only does it give you wonderful information in order to inform your test ideas in the mobile space, it also provides a good amount of background in relation to mobile technology and how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. My detailed review of the book can be found here. I really liked Jonathan's use of language, and his story telling. It made the read much easier and provided author experience which I believe to be a vital element. If you're interested in testing mobile applications (or testing in general) then I suggest you read this book. - David Greenlees, Software Testing Consultant
