Replace Action Recordings in MTM with Xamarin Test Recorder
Action Recordings (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd286647(v=vs.110).aspx) are nearly useless and are very fragile. Instead Xamarin Test Recorder https://www.xamarin.com/test-cloud/recorder should be integrated into MTM (Microsoft Test Manager) and extended to work with WPF/Win Form/ Desktop applications that require automated testing.

With the switch to Appium(www.hanselman.com/blog/WinAppDriverTestAnyAppWithAppiumsSeleniumlikeTestsOnWindows.aspx) , will action recordings in MTM be able to record to appium and record assertions? Or will Xamarin Test Recorder be able to record to appium?

I am looking at having to create automated UI tests for our WPF Application and Xamarin Test Recorder looks so much better and easier to use than action recordings in MTM. I really would like to see Test Recorder work WPF Applications.

This would be very very valuable. I can't imagine that this would take a lot of effort to develop from Microsoft. This would really help in our automated testing efforts.
I would really like this feature as it allow me to more easily test code and apps with Microsoft technologies. Thank you

Heck, I'd like to see this too. But not necessarily in MTM, in Visual Studio, the codedui test recorder should be replaced with Xamarin Test Recorder.
This would be really great to see this as Xamarin Test Recording works really well on Mac and the visual UI of the tool is really great.
