Cons
The solution needs to extend the possibilities so that we can test on other operating systems, platforms and publications for Android as well as iOS.Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work.Stability issues occurred only when connecting to the SourceSafe. Sometimes, after getting the latest version, the tool hangs and it should be reopened in order to recover.The solution needs more training manuals or some form of online forum for learning. It needs more documentation.The solution needs Mac OS support. Right now, the solution has only been developed to accommodate Windows OS.The artificial intelligence needs to be improved.What is currently missing from this solution is better support for mobile testing.Increased performance with less memory and CPU usage.
