Quality Assurance (QA) plays a vital role in the Mobile App Development Life Cycle. To ensure the success of an app, QA must be involved in all stages of development, from creating the concept, analysing requirements and wishes, creating test specifications, testing early versions of the app, releasing the finished product, to the post-development review process.

Recently, a new tool by name Crashlytics is gaining so much attention and popularity in the development domain.



Crashlytics is a cloud-based crash reporting solution.
