  1. Feature: Todo list application can add tasks
      As a user
      I want to add tasks
      So I can remember to do things
    Scenario: Add Task
      Given I am on the Welcome Screen
      When I touch "Add"
      Then I enter "listening to Taylor Swift" into input field number 1
      And I touch "Add task"
      Then I wait for "listening to Taylor Swift" to appear


Note to self

Happy Testing! :D
