To ensure you Android app gets used, you must not only have a quality app, but you must be able to very quickly respond to bugs. If you leave it to your users to find and report bugs, your app will get a low rating and it will never get downloaded. This means you need to ship a quality app that has been tested across a wide variety of Andriod devices. If you test on just the few devices you have around you, you risk missing major bugs that might appear on the devices your customers use. There is a better way, you can now test your Android application in a better way, using Appium and Sauce Labs.
