What do you think of Appium?

Valuable Features Support for both Android and IOS.

The documentation is not always easy to follow, especially the advanced setup part, where the IOS predicates usage. Also, the Appium inspector, a tool which allows you to inspect screen elements, is rather tricky to setup. • Use of Solution Three years. • Stability Issues Yes.

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.
