A former tech giant CEO was fond of saying its products “just work,” but everyone knows that no technology works perfectly from inception.
From hardware to software, there’s a detailed testing process that identifies bugs or tweaks that are needed. At least, there should be such a process for mobile app testing.

That can be a costly mistake for small businesses, as most people will not use an app after it fails twice.
