On the paper, everyone agrees that tests are important. And yet, more often than none, tests are still considered the poor cousin in the development industry. In the rare case when we actually take time to write them, we more often than not consider it a cumbersome task, and give it less thoughts than the "real code".
But tests are often as important, if not more, as the code that will be shipped on the Play Store.
