Other Advice

I recently took a trial account of Sauce Labs for some R&D purposes. Sauce Labs has pretty amazing capabilities of providing huge combinations of OS-platforms and emulators and my objective was achieved. My impression was the the site had all the information which I needed to get started but it was scattered and not easily accessible. Example, I somehow reached the tests dashboard page and I memorized it for subsequent access instances as it was not present in links sections. Maybe I missed it, but then if key information is not placed such that it is easy to find, then others can as well miss it. I found Platform Configurator extremely helpful but I found it only when I visited the Platforms page. Before that I was struggling to find what all information should be put in desired capabilities because that appeared to change with platform. I also liked that Sauce labs provide an amazing 90 hours during trial period which is really useful when R&D has to be done. It would be icing on the cake if Sauce Labs can provide a way to run tests on real devices.
Thanks Sauce Labs, you have one more loyal subscriber.
