The Internet seems to be always available nowadays. Thanks to the mobility of phones and tablets, mobile app developers can design their apps with a variety of features that assume the Internet connection is stable and let users experience tithe unleash the power of the convenient and efficient network services. Social media apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram are good examples. However, how would theses apps function when there is no stable internet connection?
For QA in an agile development team, SPEED is everything. It is a game on a high-speed roundabout, developers introduce new features and fixes every day, and you better test everything before the next iteration. Besides the new features or fixes, you still need to handle a full UI regression smoke test, how is that possible? Hire more staff?

We’ve been dealing with many many different apps. App quality and usability are always our core values we never settle for less.
There are some common UX mistakes that engineers often overlooked. Getting these discovered and handled, one can build greater apps.
