Finance & Investing
For finance and investment applications, security, updated information and timely communication are crucial. Any missteps can cost your customers money and put their personal information at risk.
At the end of the day, your app needs to stand up to real world conditions. Moving part of your testing out of the lab and into the wild is the best way to catch fringe use cases and keep issues that only show up in the real world from affecting your customers when it really counts.
Finance Industry Challenges
To have a successful financial app, it’s critical to focus on these key factors that often trip up developers in this field.
- Security, security, security. You app is transferring sensitive personal data. There is zero room for error.
- Reliable push notifications are important with financial and investment apps. Seconds are precious in this industry.
- Test for PII security when the app is multitasking or when other apps (which may not be up-to-date) are running on the device.
- If the app has a geo-location feature, it’s vital to test it in-the-field in several locations.
- With any apps that involve in-app calculations, these functions should be tested for functionality and localization.
- Verify that connections work outside of staging environments.
- Match the level of usability to your intended audience.
Security threats are constantly changing, which means ensuring your app is secure isn't going to get any easier after launch. Our FREE whitepaper Software Security Testing can help you keep up and cover the basics.
