The Khaaaan Of Mobile App Testing.

Mobile App Testing…

Isn’t just nice to have, isn’t something you can tack on late in the day; it’s a mission critical task that will ensure whether your app soars to success or flies too close to the Sun.

The idea of, “We’ll let the users find the bugs for us.” Isn’t just flawed or disrespectful of your users, it’s asking for your App to receive catastrophic reviews.

Why is this a bigger deal with Mobile App Testing than Desktop, Client-Server or Web Applications?

The Nature of the Beast

Great comment Julian. A definite point to keep in mind, thanks.
