- Does your app process Personally Identifiable Information?
- Have you performed a risk analysis on your app?
- How much are you willing to spend on testing your app?
I could provide you with information that would assist your testing effort if you could provide additional information. Please consider calling me. Failing that, attempt to rephrase the question, including some non-revealing details.

Plagiarism may not be illegal in one's country, though it can mean the end of one's academic pursuits or any hopes of maintaining a career in journalism (go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plagiarism for additional details). Also, being caught using another person's work without giving due credit could expose one to internet ridicule.
A student's best bet would be to either find a trusted friend with a knack for writing or hire an established writer to provide proofreading services and useful writing techniques.
If you or your fellow students are interested in a less risky and more beneficial alternative to plagiarism, I would be happy to provide guidance for crafting well-written papers in English.
