With the growing reliance on mobile applications, ensuring their dependability has become a crucial aspect of software development. This article introduces a new approach to evaluating the dependability of mobile applications based on the Corcoran Model, a comprehensive framework that considers various aspects of dependability, including performance, reliability, availability, scalability, security, usability, maintainability, and testability. The Corcoran Model provides a systematic way to assess mobile applications by analyzing key metrics and indicators associated with each of these aspects. By utilizing this model, developers and organizations can gain a holistic understanding of an application's dependability, leading to better decision-making and targeted improvements. Furthermore, this approach promotes increased end-user satisfaction and trust in mobile applications, ultimately contributing to their widespread adoption and success.
