Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Ability to use different frameworks.""Game testing and the API for apps are good."

More Bitbar Pros →

"The ease-of-use and quality of the overall product are above average.""TestComplete is simple, it's a very easy-to-use tool.""The initial setup is pretty easy and it's quick to deploy.""The most valuable features are the desktop and mobile modules.""It is very easy to maintain tests with this tool. It covers all necessary items in the test plan. The most painful item in testing is maintenance. When changes occur, the tests should be maintained.""It works very fine. It is fast on almost any machine, and it is also very well organized. I like its object mapping and its capability to find and interact with almost everything that exists on Windows.""Customer service and technical support responsiveness are high. Everyone is very professional.""The database checkpoints detect problems which are difficult for a human resource to find."

Cons
"Lacking capability options that can be directly integrated.""Their pricing structure is complicated and can be improved."

More Bitbar Cons →

"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.""If that engine could better identify more XPaths automatically and make the process more flexible, that would be better.""I didn't use it very heavily. One issue that I found was that there wasn't a quick way or a button to move Visual Basic scripts to TestComplete. We have a lot of such scripts in our organization, and it would be very useful to have some option to easily move these scripts. It is currently possible to convert these scripts to TestComplete, but it is not easy. I have to write some code, but everything is not available immediately.""Name Mapping feature should be clearer. Whenever I use it, I do not really know what will work and what will not work.""To bring it up to a 10, I would be looking for the addition of some key functional API testing.""The test object repository needs to be improved. The hierarchy and the way we identify the objects in different applications, irrespective of technology, needs adjustments. The located and test objects are not as flexible compared to other commercial tools.""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.""In the cross-browser domain, it has a few snags with Microsoft Edge and Chrome; although, these problems are not critical."

    Top Answer: 
    When compared to other tools, it is very simple.
    Top Answer: 
    When we try to automate and keep the same script in a few cases, it fails due to control changes. You must have a session open when running in TestComplete, otherwise, your script will fail. When… more »
