Ranorex Studio Customer Review

4/5 Stars

How our organization uses Ranorex Studio:

We use Ranorex Studio with three PCs, each connected to one type of mobile device via Wi-Fi and USB. The USB is required for deployment, and for accessing the mobile’s shell to execute Activity Manager features not provided via Ranorex’s Wi-Fi connection, e.g. force stop, clear data, etc.

Would you recommend Ranorex Studio?

Yes, It is the only stable, supported, documented solution available for mobile. Selenium and Appium are not stable, not supported, poorly documented garage projects.
