When you release an application, you face a lot of risks. Design can be less attractive to users than you’d expect, the code can be filled with bugs and even the main concept can fail. QAwerk can’t make your concept ingenious. But if you outsource quality assurance services to our skilled team, you can be confident in your application. It will be smooth and stable upon release.

Periscope allows you to conduct live broadcasts and tell the world about your own events. The application is very popular in use in the modern world. For the user, the first step to start using the application is a registration. Unfortunately, already at the first step the user faces a problem. At this stage critical bugs were found, not all users can easily complete the registration process.
