What is most valuable?

The way Appium server interacts with mobile apps is fantastic. It provides all the information about the elements inside the app, Android as well as iOS. I can interact with the element quickly, just type some text or get some text values from the element - whether it's a drop-down, or web text, or a native element. Initially, Appium had a GUI, for Windows as... more»

What needs improvement?

It needs to accommodate applications that use React.js and AngularJS. Also, an application developed on the Unity platform, such as a gaming application, objects are moving in that case.

What do you think of Appium?

Valuable Features Support for both Android and IOS. It simplifies the testing setup. • Improvements to My Organization It saves a large amount of QA resources needed for doing smoke tests and sanity checks on new versions of the app on several phones and OS versions. • Room for Improvement Usability.

What is Appium?

Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS or Android SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser (Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in 'Browser' app on Android). Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a "webview" -- a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app. Importantly, Appium is "cross-platform": it allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS and Android testsuites.
