Those who do not have many experiences in automation test should download Katalon Studio. Having tried for more than 1 month and here are my objective opinions.
+ Simple installation and easy to set up the environment
+ Record & Playback functions are quite good so I can quickly create new test cases.
+ I also try to test my REST web service by Katalon Studio and I think it works perfectly, helps me a lot
+ Documentations are not very clear and hard to find the solutions for my problems
+ The size of the application is somehow quite big.
+ Still slow when running a lot of test cases.
It is still a new tool and I hope Katalon Studio will get better in the future. I will recommend it to my colleagues

Pros: - Free
- Easy to use
- Starting and advanced mode
Cons: - Heavy file to download
- Slow sometimes
Overall: Just heard about this tool while searching on some forums. Since people said it's free and easy for manual testers to start automation testing, especially for Selenium/Appium users, I did download and try Katalon Studio for a couple of weeks.
Very simple to download, install the app, then use their built-in keywords to start the automation testing. The JIRA integration is also helpful and necessary. The support team is extremely nice :)
But one small thing to complain: for any new version update, I need to download the file, which is a bit large
Anyway, it's worth trying.
Thanks for the cool testing framework!
