Like many web software shops we all have macs.
What tools are built in or easily and cheaply available for macs in performing QA?

  • I do not understand the question. Are you asking a list of applications for MAC specifically? This has got to be a long list considering most QA/Testing applications are available for both Mac and Windows. – demouser123 Oct 23 '15 at 2:40
  • My answer has 4 tools. I don't know of any others. Do you have a list of others? – Michael Durrant Oct 23 '15 at 21:23
  1. For screenshots do shift-apple-4. This save it in a .png format that is good for inserting into tools like Jira

  2. To add text on top of screenshot snip is a free mac store download
    "Snip is a screen-capture application that can capture the active window or custom areas. Drag to zoom in/out the screen shot; add labels, texts and handwriting contents of your choice and save it to your device or the clipboard."

  3. For either workflow or animation testing use Quicktime Screen Recording to capture a movie (.mov) file. Easy access with [apple]space then type qa and pick it.

  4. For notes you can use Text Edit to create basic text documents

  • DB clients (MySQL; Postgres) should be available for the Mac. Any Java-based testing tools like JMeter should run there too. And of course bug-tracking tools like Jira and Bugzilla run inside a browser. – user246 Oct 22 '15 at 21:39
