The rise of mobile devices has spawned new issues in developing websites and applications, the most common of which is screen size variations. However, most mobile developers live in locations with high speed/highly available mobile networks. With the rise of mobile-only internet in the developing world – many mobile customers are on lower throughput/higher latency networks than typically seen in major cities. How can developers discover how their app behaves on these constricted networks? We will walk through techniques of testing on limited bandwidth, as well as discuss success stories of native mobile app optimizations.
