Distinguishing between Mobile and Desktop browser tests

A common question when testing a mobile site with Rainforest is whether or not you should use the same tests to test on both mobile and desktop browsers.

The answer is that it depends on your app. If your mobile site functions exactly like or very similar to your main app, you should be able to reuse your test without any problems.

If, however, you serve a different flavor of your site to mobile users, you probably want to have an independent suite of tests to cover this particular version of your app.

If you find that you can reuse part of an existing test in your new mobile test, we recommend duplicating the test or copying steps over to the new test.
