Quality Assurance Process & Checklist

Quality assurance (QA) is an important part of ensuring that code releases are tested correctly before being handed over, or new app releases being put up on Google Play.

Automated tests can go a long way, but some areas still need manual testing, especially before we have much wider code coverage.

Before an app release is handed over, the QA checklist template will be completed, and all tests passing before release.


  1. Create a copy of the QA checklist, with filename in the format: <app>-<version>-<date> and place this in the same folder on Google Drive as the apk file.

  2. Assign the testing tasks to individuals - ideally there would be a different set of people who are doing the tests to those who worked on the coding.

  3. Once all the tests have been completed, and are passing, the code can be released/handed over.
