A perfect comprehensive mobile testing platform

What do you like best?

In the era of tech start-ups, where speed of execution is the key, a comprehensive mobile application testing is essential for getting your applications to the market and within budget.

Even if I tried lot of platforms earlier; using Perfecto provide me:

(1) Target Device Selection: It creates an optimal mix of simulator testing and physical device testing on different models to maximize test coverage.

(2) Test Automation: It provides an effective test automation tool and maximize the use of automation to the reduce the cost of regression testing.

(3) Types of Testing: It considers different types of testing (functional, performance, security and compliance).

The most important part is it supports the new iOS/Android/other OS versions very soon.

As a user, it has satisfied me on all the parameters like functionality, performance, network, security, compatibility, conformance, usability, installation & provisioning etc.

What do you dislike?

(1) Script re-usability is low. Therefore switching to a different platform might result in higher cost.

(2) Sharing source code may not always be possible and changing the source code might increase the risk of missing some defects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Combined with solutions to mobile specific aspects of application testing with traditional best practices and testing processes, it solves most of the challenges at present. Surely, this is the best platform I have ever used.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

(1) We are using this platform for app development for logistics industry (mobile app for delivery boys in last mile deliveries and reverse logistics industry).

(2) For each new features added, we are quick than our competition in terms of release.

(3) It provides us the speed to testify our product on variety of hardware devices as well as OS in faster and smoother way.

A useful mobile testing tool

What do you like best?

Automation of mobile websites is quickly becoming common practice and Perfecto seems to be one of the leaders in this field. Among many other amazing features, the ones I liked the best are:

(1) Large selection of mobile devices and OS versions

(2) REST API for integration with other interfaces

What do you dislike?

What I disliked most is that it was sometime laggy and slow. Given that their services are cloud-based, this might be reasonable in some sense. However, I'm sure they have fixes in the pipeline to do something about this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you understand that you are using a tool based on proprietary TCL-based language. If you are coming from open-source tools, then you might need to re-write the tests. The benefits of doing so are worth it though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Clearly, the biggest reason for using it was to test our app across multiple platforms (and devices) without needing to own one. Some of our testers are not strictly speaking "programmers" and the use of a native UI allows them to test user behavior without any coding and write the expected results in plain English.

Perfecto

What do you like best?

It is great mobile test tool, and will kick-start your research in the extensive software market. Few of the best features I promote are:

- native UI based on a proprietary TCL-based programming language

-. REST API for integration with other interfaces including WebDriver and JUnit

- simulators or cloud-based real devices to run tests on.

As the name suggests Perfecto is perfect for mobile testing.

What do you dislike?

Notoriously slow. No getting away from script-reusability. As devices get more advanced, scripts and codes don’t give the same output, adding layers of complexity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Must understand all possible environmental circumstances that could interfere with the normal usage over the lifetime of the app. Also, need to analyze expected functional/usage demands under those circumstances.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generally, used for functional tests and performance tests. Required for device agnostic testing across multiple platforms along with detailed and shareable test reports.

Flexibility to Share

What do you like best?

Perfecto allows us to share a number of devices across our team which has a number of remote members who wouldn't otherwise have access to enough test devices. I like that there is a good checkout mechanism that prevents users from stumbling over each other on the same device. I also like that we can provide text to the suite and it will type it in for us on the device, a chore that otherwise would be pretty annoying with a mouse. Support has been really helpful dealing with questions about new devices and workflows that we have implemented in Perfecto.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of lag associated with operating a device remotely. Because these are real devices, when they're checked out to other people you can't use them, so sometimes we end up with a queue for choice units. I think that the checkout system causes some confusion when testers hog devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The tool can be made more useful if you include more devices. You can check out devices so that you don't interfere with other testers which helps a lot too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can provide our remote users access to a larger spectrum of devices than if they had to use their own units. We've reduced complaints in our testing department by providing a larger number of devices that they can share. We've saved money by not getting separate test kits for each of the groups.

Nice tool for cross platform mobile testing, it goes beyond general emulators

What do you like best?

Among many amazing features which I liked and used are -

- It has got all sorts of mobile devices and operation system versions to choose from.

- It has got an utility which allows quickly key in long text

- Zoom in/out, landscape/portrait view, take snapshot are other features which gives you other real device like options to carry out mobile testing extensively.

What do you dislike?

Here are few deterrents -

1) Reponse time is way slower than real device, need a lot of patience.

2) It didn't work for me on while I was on my companies VPN.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was telecommuting and had to do native and responsive design testing across various mobile platforms and it wasn't feasible to have physical access to all different mobile devices, there are tools which allows you to test responsiveness at different breakpoints, but no other mobile specific features can be tested.

That being said the greatest value I realized is that it enables you to do realistic mobile testing without having to have physical access to those devices.

Perfecto: excellent support and user community, documentation

What do you like best?

Perfecto has an excellent support staff, community and documentation and issues are handled in a timely fashion. The suite of devices is extensive and the overall network is reliable.

What do you dislike?

We would like to see more geographic coverage of networks and devices in Asia. Also, some other tools transfer URLs from device to device; with Perfecto, the URL needs to be input each time a new device is opened.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Perfecto is gracious in allowing a trial period. Run tests and ask plenty of questions; they are very responsive and point you in the right direction.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our number one priority is test coverage on a wide variety of devices, networks and geographic locations. In this respect, Perfecto fits the bill. We save time and development costs by quickly testing and debugging issues.
