As much as you can’t predict the weather, you can’t predict all the bugs in apps and services. But you can find most of those if your QA team is big and professional enough. And if you can’t afford that much resources in-house, then outsourcing is the best solution for you.

This approach will save your time and money on finding, hiring, and maintaining a group of testers, as well as will allow you to pay more attention to other processes of product development. When you outsource quality assurance of your project be sure to choose a professional team like QAwerk. We can provide you with the most advanced testing technologies and methods and guarantee a quality of the result on time.

The Weather Channel LLC is one of the major companies providing end-users with meteo data solutions, so we decided to get a better look at their latest addition to the weather app family. Storm Radar has an extensive selection of features and has the ability to track storms and hurricanes around the world. This application is great because it can save a user from weather disasters, but some bugs better be fixed.
