It's a waste of time and money... At least at the beginning, then your app grows and manual testing and issues are much more significant than the cost of code tests into your App and there's a rush to code them on an impossible environment.

If you ask me, code the tests while coding the app is the best approach. Unit tests, end to end tests and integration tests are meant to provide quality assurance on the code, specially into production and reduces cardiovascular risk among developers 😆

No, I say you always will need them unless it's a very thin app without too much interaction and logic.
