Test against a huge range of device and browser combinations but expect some connectivity issues

What is our primary use case?

A lot of times we use BrowserStack because we provide QA services to our clients as part of a bigger solution. We do software consulting. We use it to test across mobile devices — actual mobile devices — so that we do not have to maintain our own collection of devices. Trying to do that would be just crazy for us because there are so many devices and so many potential combinations. We test against different combinations of operating systems, browsers, and versions of browsers. For example, we continue to test IE 11, even though that is painful for a lot of our development team. Unfortunately… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Testing across devices and browsers without maintaining that inventory is invaluable."
  • "The product guides and resources are extensive and very helpful."
  • "Local testing for products with no public exposure is an advantage in development."
  • "Connectivity can sometimes mar the testing experience."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anyone looking into BrowserStack and products like it is to really do some research into the products you want to use. Our company looked to our team of QA personnel to evaluate other products. At the end of the day, they came back and said that most of the competing products in the category did not meet all the needs we have. BrowserStack continues to be the leader as far as meeting the needs of our QA team. During the research, we looked for reports on the review sites, the recommendations people were making, and whatever feedback we could find from real users. Certainly, it is…

Easy to set up and has good stability

What is our primary use case?

We switched to BrowserStack because we didn't have enough devices so we moved to a cloud-based solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "The setup was quite simple. The website easily explains how to set it up and if you want to integrate it with BMP tools there are online simple step tutorials."
  • "I would like for there to be more integration with BrowserStack and other platforms."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine out of ten considering how easy it is to set up. They should improve the query resolution. It is a good tool. We have multiple products that use it for automation.

Flexible with a fast and easy setup but needs better integration with frameworks

What is our primary use case?

We were testing it as a user interface on various systems which we manage.

Pros and Cons

  • "It just added some flexibility. There was nothing that improved our coding standards, etc. because all of our UIs were functional before we tried it."
  • "Adding better integration with frameworks, particularly testing frameworks like Robot, would be of more value to customers and make their jobs easier."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate BrowserStack a seven out of ten.

A cloud web and mobile testing platform with full device capability

What is our primary use case?

We're building two products at the same time. We're building web pages and building Android and iOS applications. After the building stage, we're going to translate it to automation. But right now, we're testing and proving tools to understand which one will work best in the future.

What is most valuable?

I like that it offers full device capability.

What needs improvement?

Customer support could be better. We tried to implement and explore this product with the vendor or reseller's help, but we haven't had any good response about the product.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup and configuration of this product are easy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is fine.
