Well, there are many reasons, which can support my answer, and some of them I am going to scribble down here within this post to help you understand the significance of software testing.

Testing allows your mobile app to identify the bugs and the errors from the very initial stage of the development.

And if there is something that doesn’t fit the app’s environment users’ expectations can be replaced with something engaging.
