Want Your App to Fail? If You Ignore These 3 Keys to Testing, Failure Is a Safe Bet.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. All startup founders know that testing is important -- or do they?

What's behind this disconnect? Unfortunately, it's part of a startup culture for app developers, particularly first-timers who feel a sense of urgency to rush their apps to market.

In an open letter to Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg, they call Messenger Kids an "irresponsible" attempt to encourage young children to use Facebook.
