Best Test Automation Tools

  • TestComplete. This is an amazing solution for engineers who prefer the flexibility of Windows tests without actually using the OS. Web, iOS, Android and MS apps can be tested from via a single solution. Plus there’s access to Git, MS TFS, Mercurial as well as Subversion. Nice. Note that the app uses its own data format. Additionally, the solution has stunning visualization and suits less technical testers as well.    
  • Telerik Test Studio. MS Visual Studio users rejoice – your day has come. Tech and coding skills are essential for use of this solution but isn’t it a small price to pay for programmers who are able to contribute?  Basically you get both dev and test environments in a single place. Neat!
  • eggPlant functional. A fine solution for Linux or Mac lovers allows a great experience with mixed environments. You will be able to test UI with scripts after software records is. The script is familiar to the BASIC coding language thus simple “if” statements can be added. This makes the process simple for everyone interested in creation of variables or loops. Even testers without experience can pick the language up with considerable ease.
  • Appium. If you are testing mobile – this has been and will be your go-to choice regardless of the day, month or year on your calendar.
  • Perfecto Mobile. This was a handy lab of real devices emulated into the virtual world. Today we have an entire platform for automation against an impressive network or actual devices. Who can say no to that?
