Suitest is a ubiquitous test automation tool that works with many types of devices and platforms. After configuring a device in your Suitest account you will be able to do many interesting things that probably not have been possible before. For instance, you will be able to:
- Control and execute commands on multiple devices at once.
- Schedule a particular action on a group of devices.
- Control local and remote devices with equal ease.
- Test and debug apps on local and remote devices.
You can also benefit from Suitest public device lab and use Suitest-managed devices for live testing, test authoring and automated test executions.
