Ranorex vs open-source alternatives

Post by DiegoMaxwell » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:22 pm


In which cases/areas Ranorex has advantage over free automation alternatives? What justify its cost?

I have two ideas for implementing testing tool to my project. We test native mobile, web and desktop app at the same time, however, mobile is our main focus and web+desktop are only 10% of all tests.

My idea is to implement Appium for mobile + TestStack.White/FlyUI for desktop + something for web - all three in .Net using VS.

Another idea is to buy/use Ranorex. But what is Ranorex advantage? Is it worth it?

I’ve answered exactly the same post (to the last bit) about two months ago...

It was requested by someone else, but the rest of the post is the same. Are you the same person under different name? 😉
