For effective tablet application, its UI needs must quiet down and become more consistent.

In such a case, testing tablet application is rushed overlooking the application malfunction, small glitches and crashes.
Inadequate processes: It is imperative to stay in touch with professionals who acquire a team of innovative individuals as Android tablet application testing is still in the infancy stage and many QAs repeatedly use the same ineffective processes.
