Abstract: The scrolling applications are defined and the quality requirements are set for them. The developing stage cycles for scrolling applications are presented and the existing digital content in these applications is analyzed. Scrolling applications are designed as citizen-oriented applications. The error types that appear in the scrolling application development are identified and the causes of their occurrence are described. It is defined the objective of the autotesting as a process of control and total debugging.  Are implemented metrics to evaluate the effects of errors arising in the process of development and autotesting of scrolling applications.

Keywords: scrolling, autotesting, quality, processes
