Why developers should test apps on women

On kids too. And counter-tenors.

Developer Matt Wiechec had a really positive attitude about our tongue-in-cheek feedback and responded with good news about future updates. "You nailed it in the audio clip Erica," he wrote. "We did test with women and did not see the severity of the issue as obvious as it is now. Voice recognition is based on real life audio samplings and while women are represented in our samples it looks like a certain higher frequency is poorly detected. I am looking into this and will issue an update ASAP. The good news is that this is addressable. I will keep you posted. Thank you very much for the feedback."
