Since May my book is available in the printed edition in different online and offline stores and I got lots of great feedback from readers. Just this week a very cool package arrived with some free copies of my book that I can use to give away to other people. Some of the copies are already on its way to people who supported me during the writing and inspired me over the last few years.
However, today you have the chance to win a copy of Hands-On Mobile App Testing in the printed edition. Two copies are available for winning. All you have to do is to leave a comment with the best mobile bug you have ever found on a mobile device. It doesn’t matter if the bug happens on native, hybrid or web apps.
Please leave the comment until 30th of June 2015 at this post. After that date I will pick the two winners, inform them, ask them for their shipping address and will sign each book with a unique signature.
My book Hands-On Mobile App Testing is now available in the printed copy edition in all online and offline bookstores. If you visit the book landing page http://handsonmobileapptesting.com/ you get further information about the book as well as a free chapter.

Bug reports are very important for the product owner, product manager and the developers. Firstly, a bug report tells the developers and the product owner about issues they were not aware of. They also help to identify possible new features no one has thought of and, last but not least, they provide useful information about how a customer may use the software. All of this information can be used to improve your software. Read more
