How to do Quick Tours on your Mobile Apps

Have you ever been in a situation where:
-Stakeholders come to you/your QA team and say “We have about 2 hours before we push the new version of the app into production. Could you do some high level acceptance tests and ensure our app is stable before we do it”. You have no idea where to start and what to do in these 2 hours.

-You/your QA team has 3 days for testing the new version of the mobile app. You have all these test ideas but do not know which one to do first, how to prioritize your testing and what kind of vulnerabilities to look out for?
I am one such Tester, who has been in the above situation. Based on my experience testing various mobile web, hybrid and native applications for several years now, I started categorizing various defects I have found and realized; there are some common testing approaches you could follow to quickly find vulnerabilities in your mobile applications.

To take this one step further, I did a lot of research on Session Based Exploratory Testing (SBTM) and adapted them to a mobile context as well. In this session, you will learn different approaches to break mobile apps by Pairing and doing SBTM with live applications.
