Supports all kinds of apps, which makes it flexible and robust mobile testing tool 2. It is less appropriate where we need intercept network call to verify the API calls. Extensive coding experience is required to work Appium

It suits for checking features of a simple web application or features that don't heavily rely on AJAX. You could create tests that check if application is running properly and raise alarm if required so someone can manually check for problems. However making big test sets to produce reliable results may prove to be difficult or impossible. Also running lots of test cases can take hours.

Pros
JS Foundation
  • It uses WebDriver API so it makes it easy to use for former web test automation engineers.
  • It can be managed via the command line via an extensive set of parameters.
  • It handles implicit waits at the server side that is especially valuable in distributed infrastructure.

If you're an Apple developer, you use Xcode. It's practically a forced necessity. For system testing though, it doesn't have to be. You can have your development team focus on unit and integration tests in their platform and another team automate acceptance tests with a language they are more familiar with.

Return on Investment
JS Foundation
  • Appium is open source, so it's free. That's budget friendly right there.
  • The ability to write mobile automation tests has saved considerable time for our manual test team, but that is true with most automation tests.
  • We use Sauce Labs with our other automation, but Appium works great with Sauce Labs, as well, if I needed to run on emulators and simulators.
