Postman apps go through extensive testing and beta builds before we ship. That said, there might be cases when the app crashes, or exhibits unexpected behavior.

You can also use the DevTools window to inspect the request and response payloads. If the Interceptor is disabled, switch to the Network tab, and you should see each call as it’s made. Clicking on this will let you view the headers and payloads for the requests and responses:
