Let’s start this year with an adaptation of the lyrics to Tina Turner’s We Don’t Need Another Hero.

Out of the OS domination, out from the wreckage
Can’t make the same mistake this time
We are the children, the last generation
We are the ones they left behind

And I wonder when we are ever gonna change it
Living under the corporate control till nothing else remains

We don’t need another app store
We don’t need to know what we can watch
All we want is life beyond the closed in

Looking for something we can rely on
There’s got to be something better out there
Web and free sharing, its day is coming
All else are castles built in the air

And I wonder when we are ever gonna change it
Living under the corporate control till nothing else remains

All the children say, “We don’t need another app store
We don’t need to know what we can watch
All we want is life beyond the closed in”

So what do we do with our lives?
We leave only a mark
Will our freedom shine like a life
Or end in the dark? Is it app store or nothing?

We don’t need another app store
We don’t need to know what we can watch
All we want is life beyond the closed in

All the children say, “We don’t need another app store
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the closed in

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
