How Bugfender Helps Developers Improve the Customer Experience?
No doubt developers want to deliver flawless apps to their users but due to technological advancements and some other reasons like device fragmentation, it has become extremely difficult to test apps on real devices. A minor bug in the app can destroy the reputation of a developer or company; that’s why as a developer it should be your top priority to discover bugs before your users do – even after releasing.
Bugfender provides real time logs and insights of the performance of the app on real devices. It means developers can see the logs of their apps remotely while sitting thousands of miles away from the devices in which they are being used. Bugfender is more than a simple crash reporting tool as not all bugs result in a crash or total failure. Some lead to abnormal app behavior, instability and security vulnerabilities.
