There are more than 4 Million apps in the Google Play store and App store. This means that there is tough competition to rank the app at the top in any specific category. Reviews and ratings make the difference as the potential user will read the comments on the app store and compare the ratings of the app with its competitors. This is why it’s necessary to test the app rigorously before launching it.
The problem is that there are so many different devices in the market from different manufacturers with different screen sizes, OS, chipset, etc. The app should work smoothly on all the devices irrespective of the device specifications. This is where pCloudy comes into the picture.
