that’s what we most often read under ‘App Store -> Updates’ when looking into the notes of developers. 
Inextricably linked with apps are small animals which most aggressive life forms are well-known from tropical areas and called BUGS. Today we have them also massively in temperate zones and they are distributed for free by Apple, Google, medium-sized companies, and individual enterprises via Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.

“Microsoft is not responsible for people replacing their screen by a BSOD.”

Thanks for stopping by.
