Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It runs completely flawlessly and seamlessly every day.
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.
The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad.
The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.
I like the scripting and parameterization features.
It helped in achieving the testing of on-premise applications, as well as cloud-based applications, without much difficulty.
NeoLoad is best tool for testing in production without making many changes to the script or solution.
It is a good source for load, stress and performance testing.
Configuration-wise, there is a lot of room for improvement.
It needs to accommodate applications that use React.js and AngularJS.
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 the Unity platform. That is a huge lack right now.
Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing.
I would like to see support for auto-correlations.
While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us.
NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications.
It needs improvement with post-production.
Pricing and Cost Advice
This is an open source solution so it does not cost anything for licensing or otherwise.
The licensing cost is less compared to other licensing performance testing tools.
It is cheaper than other solutions.

Also Known As
|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.|
The NeoLoad load and performance testing tool for web and mobile apps realistically simulates user activity and monitors infrastructure behavior to eliminate bottlenecks. It covers all performance testing from component and automated tests to system-wide hybrid-cloud load tests.
