Overall Satisfaction with Postman

Hands down the best API development tool. After writing any API call, I use Postman to debug and make sure everything is working correctly. Postman is very easy to use and user-friendly. Once someone told me to use it and showed me how things work, I got up to speed within a few days. I was able to automate some of the calls and tests. It's one of those tools that you don't think you need until you use it and realize how much it makes your life easier. Try it out! I highly recommend it if you're an API developer. I tried other apps and this is the most rounded tool.
  • Testing.
  • Automated testing for API calls.
  • Easy to use and user-friendly.
  • More guides would be helpful because sometimes it takes me a while to figure out something.
  • Makes my life easier.
I used Fiddler before, and while it does a lot, it's not as good as Postman. Postman is so unique, and helps you test specific API calls with specific tokens, etc. You can modify it in a way that Fiddler can't. It is definitely a more secure tool to test API calls than many others out there.
Postman is one of those tools that does exactly what I want it to do with some more functionalities. For example, if you wrote API calls and wanted to test them, Postman would show you both the request and the response in a very nice view, and if there were an error it would tell you what it is.
