How Bugfender Can Help You Develop Better Apps?
Bugfender is sometimes considered a crash reporting tool which is a misconception about it, as this amazing tool is much more than that. Crash reporting tools only log crashes and total failure, and usually they do this perfectly. However, due to the exponentially increasing complexity of the apps nowadays, not all bugs lead to total failure but the majority of them result in abnormal behavior of the app, security loopholes and even performance drop.
Bugfender can help you discover those bugs before your users do. You don’t need physical access to the testing devices (which are actual devices used by actual users) as you can remotely access the logs, enable or disable logging remotely and even filter which devices to log.
