Automatically download/sync screenshots to local environment via CI

I have a user who is looking to automate their testing environment. They do not like the idea of going into a web interface to view/compare screenshots. It would be nice if XTC could expand the API to allow screenshots to be downloaded via a CI system to a local environment.

    The current API is limited with both downloading the screenshot and providing the device log.

    Having these APIs will enable scenarios where the test opens apps, makes some actions and the test is able to detect if the app is in the correct state (by comparing the screenshot to expected one) and in case of crash, find the root cause (by examining the device log)

    Agreed, the ability to do screenshot comparison on a local environment would be super powerful

    A related scenario is screenshot generation for app stores. See XTA-I-117

    Being able to download the device logs and screenshots, so we can create test run results reports, is required for us to meet our SOPs to prove test results to auditors.
