Mobile apps play a crucial role in people’s lives and, as a result, directly impact businesses. The bar is set high for all mobile apps in the market. By the end of 2021, there will be roughly seven billion mobile users worldwide, according to a survey by Statista. This exponential growth in the adoption of mobile apps can be attributed to the increasing popularity of hybrid or cross-platform apps over native platforms.
Since 2015, React Native has consistently gained popularity and emerged as a popular choice in the cross-platform mobile application space, as it saves between 40 and 90 percent of time spent developing apps on different platforms.
Developing and maintaining an efficient app is a complicated process and requires the investment of a significant amount of time and money. Improvements, periodic updates and fixes are critical for the overall success of an app in the long run.
Any mobile app needs to be thoroughly tested. Performance factors like loading times, crashes, and complicated input fields all add up to a poor user experience and can ruin the chances of market success.
Bugs lead to bad user experiences and, ultimately, business losses. One way to prevent fragile programming is to test your code thoroughly before releasing it into the wild.
