What language, platform, development stack are you asking about? 

What kind of an application?

What does "best" mean for you-- that you can write tests in advance of development, that you can record/replay, that you can write tests without "sleep" command in them? That you have convenience of testing or fidelity to actual use? 

What do you want from a testing app? There can be no best tool for every job. 

A little more information makes this answerable.
