Parking is becoming one of the most burning issues for thousands of car owners in many big cities globally. The reason is that the lack of free space might make you cruise around the needed area for hours but still fail to find a place for your car. Fortunately, car parking apps are here to help.
Many startups and big companies offer smart parking solutions for a wide audience in many locations. However, to remain successful, smart parking software should be carefully tested by professionals to avoid any flaws and performance issues. So, how to test the parking app in the most detailed and effective way? Let’s find out the answers!
The most important thing to know about parking-related solutions is that there are two types of applications that allow you to get a free place for your car and pay for it.
First, there are many apps that provide their users with unique opportunities to find available spots with a handy payment option (you can either reserve a place for later or get your place almost immediately.) In other words, these are on the fly and advanced parking apps. Second, there are applications that only allow you to pay for parking seamlessly (once you found the parking by yourself).
Since the first type of applications are more up-to-date and demanding for customers, we will focus on describing a testing flow for these digital solutions.
Most apps for parking include particular steps developed to make the user’s experience of using a product smooth and understandable. Here is a list of the most common stages of using these popular digital solutions:
Since proper QA testing is the process of testing a product to ensure that the finished product is created without defects and that all features are working properly, then the QA process must test all these stages of the parking app.
Currently, parking apps are widely used by customers in dozens of highly-populated cities. Here are a few most well-known digital products of this kind, however, these are just examples, and you may find many more that are popular in your area.

Any modern parking app requires advanced and careful testing to make sure it will satisfy the needs and expectations of the customers. Below is a list of must-have features any digital product of this kind should have.
To put it short, QA experts will need to use a real car to test an application in live conditions. No emulators, virtual machines, or other simulators are needed. The only way to test a modern parking app is to use a real vehicle during testing, as well as drive the streets and parking spots in different locations.
Further, the testers will need to use real payment methods to ensure the cycle is fully completed.
QA professionals should perform different types of testing and provide a screenshot of the exact location using a map app, a picture of the car in the street parking including the street name/number, car details including plate number, and associated phone number.
