Pros

More CrossBrowserTesting Pros →

"The automation is very fast and you don't need to be overly proficient in coding.""Our clients have requested by all types of testing, including mobile, desktop, and API testing and all of those are covered by Katalon. I find that very valuable, very complete.""Katalon Studio's biggest advantage is its price. It's a good tool for the price, albeit with some limitations when you compare it with tools like Tricentis Tosca.""The recording feature of this product is very valuable for our testing purposes.""The best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality.""One of the features that I like is Object Recognition. It worked very well, and it allowed me to create a dynamic expert based on my requirements.""It has been good so far for API testing on Mac. It is not that hard to learn and use. There is so much support out there, so if anyone wants to start using it, there is enough help.""The initial setup is pretty straightforward and easy enough to complete."

Cons
"Being able to test on real devices via the virtual connection is wonderful, but it can cause some lag and load time issues while testing.""We had some issues with the onboarding process and the cloud conductivity could improve."

More CrossBrowserTesting Cons →

"Katalon lacks integration with other software, including integrating other languages like .NET and PHP.""Katalon Studio could improve having visual testing, but I think they're launching that feature very soon. We would like to see an increase in the usage of AI.""Katalon Studio should improve its usability, it still needs some improvement where users can easily use it to build their automation suite. It requires some initial work to set it up. There should be more keywords in the library to limit the coding requirements, this will allow a non-technical person easily start using it, which would be better.""The price of the solution is a bit high. It's one of the reasons we decided not to continue using the product.""It would be helpful if they can integrate a feature for performance testing.""There could potentially be more reporting within the solution. We need more issue reports, for example.""Currently, I'm the only one who can use it because I have a Mac. It is giving a hard time to my team members who are on Linux. My team members are using Linux, and Katalon doesn't support Linux very well. It keeps on crashing. It crashes and shuts down almost every time they save their work, so they are not able to use it. It should have good support for Linux. We don't know what the problem is. If the Katalon team can pick up this issue, it will be very helpful.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all."

  • "The price is not high it's good."
  • "We are using the free version. We plan on getting a paid version because there is a limitation in terms of the number of users. We want to maximize it."
  • "I am using the free version."
  • "Its pricing is quite reasonable. If you require their help in getting started, then there is a professional services fee on top of the product license cost."
  • "In terms of pricing, Katalon, Selenium, and Cypress all represent a similar level of investment. The software for these tools are either true open source or almost open source (because they charge a small fee), so pricing is a neutral point for me."
  • "The cost of Katalon Studio is expensive but it is less than some of the other solutions, such as Micro Focus UFT or SmartBear TestComplete. The cost is the main reason we are using Katalon Studio."
  • "Katalon Studio is less expensive than other solutions, such as Micro Focus UFT."
