In this episode 

Antoine is an iOS Developer at WeTransfer and the author of SwiftLee, a weekly blog about Xcode and Swift development. WeTransfer solves a problem many of us face, by enabling users to transfer large-sized files, such as photos, videos, PDFs, and more — from the web or right from your phone. 

With Russell Stephens, Engineering Manager at Bitrise, we talked to Antoine about all the work that goes into building highly-rated, innovative mobile apps — their main app, WeTransfer and their more recent app, Collect, are continuously rated above 4.5 stars in the app stores. 

Tune in to learn about 

  • how they approach testing, debugging, and quality assurance,
  • how they follow up with user feedback, 
  • what tools and technologies they use to automate processes to save time for creating innovative features and functionalities, or
  • how AI will change our experience on mobile?
