    "This app is pretty neat when it comes to testing your apps. You can test all apps on iOS, android and hybrids. It is easy to follow if you have the knowledge of building and coding apps. I liked it because you can test all your apps in one place. "

    Use the XCTest framework to write unit tests for your Xcode projects that integrate seamlessly with Xcode's testing workflow. Tests assert that certain conditions are satisfied during code execution, and record test failures (with optional messages) if those conditions are not satisfied.
