If you're an Apple developer, you use Xcode. It's practically a forced necessity. For system testing though, it doesn't have to be. You can have your development team focus on unit and integration tests in their platform and another team automate acceptance tests with a language they are more familiar with.

We frequently came across scenarios which were too cumbersome for manual testing & wanted an easy automation solution. We are now using TestGrid for those scenarios & are happy with the product.
