I had previously posted about a mind map for getting started with mobile testing that I had come across on the Ministry of Testing website. What I was really hoping to eventually see was an iOS specific one, which I’m happy to say we now have. Bernard and I have put together this mind map for testing iOS.
I’ve been wanting something like this for myself to serve as a checklist; things to make sure I’m covering or have at least considered when testing. We tried to strike a balance of being thorough while not going overboard with details. If you think it sucks, or that we missed a bunch of important stuff, or have a bunch of things you don’t care about, luckily for you the .smmx file is available to modify to your heart’s content! Should you find yourself feeling so adventurous, the application I used was SimpleMind Free. Though you’ll need to grab the pay-for version of SimpleMind to be able to import an existing mind map.
