Appium is a very good tool because with its help we can automate all of the platforms, Android, iOS, or Windows, and there is a single solution. We can create a single framework for all platforms that can satisfy all of the needs. Being an open source solution it is free of cost. Otherwise, there are other open source tools for particular platforms, but with the Appium library, we can automate all major platforms. View full review »

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 well as for Mac, and there were some limitations that I couldn't figure out: How to run automated test on multiple iOS devices. However, we figured out that you can run a couple of instances of Appium in parallel, and use them to run tests in parallel, as well as sequentially. It's available as open-source for the iOS or Mac, as well as for Windows, so that's a pretty huge feature. View full review »
