How to expose flaws in custom-built mobile apps

Developing custom apps allows a business to differentiate itself from competitors by offering customers, whether internal users or consumers, a better mobile experience.

Not only can underlying weaknesses and vulnerabilities be carried over from the web application space, but there are new concerns about the secure storage of sensitive data at rest on a device.
