Is workflow tolerable using only App Center for iOS builds or do u need Mac to truly be productive?

So I just realized that App Center can be used to build iOS apps and that you are not required to have a Mac to compile your app. But my question is does this slow down the development process in any way? Is it more productive to do testing locally on simulator and only build in App Center when you're ready to commit? What about debugging and setting breakpoints - how does that work? Any feedback is welcome, thanks!

    A local mac allows you to set breakpoints and step through your code, App Center doesn't offer that.

    Thanks @JohnHair this was good to know, my Mac just arrived today and after having done a few builds thru AppCenter I can definitely say that a Mac is definitely needed.
