Compatibility Issues

What are the compatibility issues that you have encountered while testing mobile applications?

I wish to know about things which worked on one device but didn't work on others.

for e.g.

1) When the status of an item was chnaged the background of the item was to be displayed as light green color. It worked well on Samsung Galaxy SII but not on HTC Sensation.

 

Please add to the list.

  • Hi Divya,

    About 3 I am not sure. din't even test much oh that device, cos noone uses it anymore (here).

    4: yes, as per dev here. nothing much can be done about that. We needed to open number keypad by default for a field which takes only number input. Devs did that for android and iPhone, but ti doesn't work on Windows.

    5. Yes, but the button can be disabled for your app. 

  • 3, 4 & 5 points

    Is these noticed in all the apps ?

    Thanks everyone. Keep the list going.

    I will try to compile it in a file after we have some more of them.

     

    1. There is no vicible respons of user action in Android Phone while it is clearly visible on Windows Phone.

    2. While switching between the tabs in the application 5-6 times, Windows Phone is showing undefined on the screen.

    3. LG Optimus shows the password in plain text till you type it completely.

    4. Number keypad not opening by default on windows Phone.

    5. Back button on Windows Phone logs you out. It doesn't do so on Android Phone.

  • 1. A screen does not change view in landscape mode on Android Jelly Bean. It works on iPhones, windows phone and other android versions.

    2. The app sends upto 10 photos to the server. HTC desire device was sending the last photo n times because it could save only one photo in the temporary directory.

    3. Header drops to middle of the screen on iPhones when clicking a button.

  • I have observed following issues:

    1. App crash issue- App worked fine on Motorola Milestone 2.1 but crashed on Motorola Milestone 2.2.

    2. UI issues- App occupied full screen on Motorola Milestone but not on samsung galaxy tablet.

    3. OS specific issue- Web App worked fine on Android and iOS but not on Blackberry and Windows.

  • Thanks Ruma, keep posting these kind of issues....!!

     1. After updating a number, some calculation is to be displayed/updates on the screen: For Samsung Galaxy, the calculation is not getting updated unless you click somewhere on the screen. It is working as expected on iPhone, Windows Phone, HTC desire.

  • Thank you all for the inputs.

    I will keep on adding to the list as I find more issues.

  • this also depends on the various OS versions of the same platforms; 

    nature of the device - touch, standard, semi-touch,

    nature of keypad - standard keypad, qwerty keypad, complete touch ...

    the scope can be found more in Android devices owing to its huge collection of devices (from multiple OEMs) and OS versions..
