Select Sires Inc. is a North American leader in providing highly fertile semen as well as world-class reproductive and herd-management programs for dairy and beef producers. Apart from the web platform, Select Sires has a mobile app, which contains all the essentials cattle breeders need – a bull search with custom filters, a favourites section with saved lists of sires, and an option to quickly share the data via email as a PDF file. On top of that, the lineup of sires is available even without an Internet connection.

The app is simple and intuitive in use; however, we know for sure that even apps with modest business logic need thorough testing and continuous QA. Our team manually tested the app to see if there are any Select Sires bugs, and here is what we found.

With the Select Sires Mobile App, it’s never been easier to find, create, and share a list of sires that meet your breeding goals. Layout issues, localization mistakes, and broken functionalities annoy and frustrate users. Mobile apps like this require a sufficient amount of manual testing to uncover all those bugs and UI inaccuracies users stumble upon during their journey.
