Following reports that some of the young location-based services are spitting out server errors as traffic is exploding, crowd-sourced testing company uTest decided to check out the three most familiar players in the arena. It’s conclusion: Foursquare, Gowalla and Brightkite have 870 software bugs in their applications.
Foursquare ranked best with “only” 177 bugs. Gowalla had 316, and Brightkite 377 in the “Check-In Challenge” test uTest organized. But those numbers are not “unusually high,” according to uTest VP of marketing, Matt Johnston.
