And manual testing, while more accurate, is the most inefficient use of developer time. Companies who choose not to write UI tests to save time struggle to acquire and retain users. Your UI is the only way users experience your product, so if it fails to delight, they'll fail to convert – or even worse, churn.Meeshkan enhances, and in many cases replaces, the "all hands on deck" pre-release testing with beautifully crafted, uncannily realistic artificial hands.Stop guessing. Test what matters. Release with confidence. Supercharge your growth.
