Project – VPAR app – iOS App Testing & Android App Testing
During 2015, I tested several iterations of the VPAR Golf App, which is used by golfers around the world to keep track of and share their scores. This is both an iOS and Android app, so both were included in the testing performed.
The testing included the end-to-end scenarios of golfers signing up to the app, creating their account, then creating and playing their game of golf. These games can be complex with all the different options available – such as Individual, Matchplay, Strokeplay, Fourball, Pairs etc, each with their own different way of scoring.
The app makes use of GPS both when selecting which course the game is being played at (e.g. nearest course as default) and also when getting hole information for every hole on the course being played, including on-screen maps of pins, holes etc.
