What needs improvement?

This product is still maturing, so at times there are issues with its stability if your scripts run continuously for more than fifteen to twenty hours. At times, we have… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is an open source solution so it does not cost anything for licensing or otherwise.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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… 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. Interacting with those elements is still lacking in Appium. Appium doesn't have the internal library to play with… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used commercial tools like Experitest. There were a lot of limitations. For example, we had to use iOS Configuration Utility manager before using that tool. We felt Appium was better because it is an open-source tool. It is very competitive with any of the commercial tools, right now.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, Appium is the best. It is not made as a commercial tool. I would rate Appium as a nine out of 10 because it has the flexibility, simplicity, and it is elegant. It is technically more advanced, and even a beginner can start using Appium very quickly, and master it in less time.

Appium Questions

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.
