Over 258,263 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best Mobile App Testing Tools vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What do you think of Tricentis Tosca?
Overall, it is quite a different experience in using it. It does not contain any code, and builds from the requirements as a model of what the actual application will contain. The catch being that initially you do not need to define your test cases from the application end and things might not even be in sequence of what the actual final application would look like.
I have an analogy for this – a human body is composed of head, body, hands and legs. Each one has its own “attributes”, which in turn have “instances”. This is what is called the ‘Model-based approach’. Each hand will have attributes such as fingers, nails, elbow, fore-hand, wrist, etc. Then, all these attributes will have instances – long fingers, short fingers, thick fingers, etc. Now to build a body, you need to...
The fact that it allows users to test on real mobile devices instead of emulators is something that projects have told us is beyond compare. Your app or your website won't behave on an emulator like it will on a real mobile device, no matter how great the emulator is - even if it's the one that comes from the OS developer that ships with the development studio.... more»
We like to host the tools centrally. We would need them to be multi-tenants, so different projects could log on and have their own set of devices and their own set of apps, and they wouldn't see data from other projects that are using it. Right now, the way that we're managing it is we're requiring no clients are able to access it, so if we do happen to see... more»

What do you think of Tricentis Tosca?
a) It is a good tool for use by Business
b) It requires an initial framework / artifacts to be built by a person who is technical and can understand testing an application in-depth.
i) He has to be a person who can create the modules and also do some technical coding using VB and/or Java & C#
ii) He has to have a background of working with Excel and Math functions, so that he can create the relevant queries and use the in-built TQL language to create the required reports and search + merge duplicates.
c) Good use in Agile workshops, where the person needs to conceptualize the tests before the developer provides the complete application interface.
i) Has an integrated Requirements module, which integrates and creates a good report tool for senior management to use and...

It's relatively easy to use and it allows you to use decentralized devices to test with. I don't know if it's that important. There are some negative drawbacks to it, but it's flexible. It's a different option with them being centralized.
The ability to test mobile devices, which is pretty important. We can test different flavors of mobile devices, different versions of the operating systems on those mobile devices. That's pretty important for us.
The key feature is the ease of use. We want to make sure that when our customers get the product, it's not going to be on the shelf for six months. They want to be able to readily use each solution productively. Whether that includes the product itself in our services, or just the product itself. We want to make sure that they're going to be using it.
I think the biggest issues that I've seen, and this is a personal view of mine, is that most of the HPE products have a common look and feel to them. I'd really like to see it be a little more customizable to a use and user standpoint. For example. I happen to be colors blind, so I'd like to see more vivid colors on the UI, and things like that. It would make it... more»

Spy CodeModule XPath
• Improvements to My Organization
Automation coverage overnight is very useful. Compared to Selenium, Ranorex has a very small learning curve, so most of the technical QA people can start development with it right away.
• Room for Improvement
They need to have modularity (running concurrently different parts of the tests on different environments and reporting back to centralized run centre). Currently we are implementing this functionality via code, but feature should give a lot of advantages.
• Use of Solution
I've used it for three years.
• Scalability Issues
The scalability is limited to one process. You cannot have multiple reports combined together automatically, because each run is independent.
• Customer Service and...
