Appium

Appium is well suited when you need to write automation tests with low costs. It's very simple to start up, configure and run. It doesn't depend on the application platform and is portable to many programming languages like Java, Ruby, etc. If you have a team of developers and SDETs and you need to increase the code coverage simply and fast, Appium is your best choice.

Sencha

It's great to develop business applications. Previously, we tried different technologies but we find it the most suitable for us. We also deploy a generic backend so we don't need to install anything new to implement new applications. This helps us to develop very fast and with very low effort.

Pros

  • Crossdevice: With Appium you can automate tests for Android and iOS both. There is no need to learn more than 1 language.
  • Easy: It's really easy to configure and use appium; it's very useful when you're testing strategy is based on "developers write tests".
  • Open Source: It's such a nice strength of appium, because you don't need to pay to use a good tool like Appium is.

Alternatives Considered

Appium is comparable with Calabash because it's the only cross-platform tool like appium. Espresso is only to automate Android tests and XCTest is only for iOS. We selected Appium because it solves a lot of automation situations and gestures of the mobile apps. We've used Calabash but since it has an uncertain future we decided to migrate to Appium.

The main reason we chose Sencha is it’s full stack solution. We have an integrated backend that solves a lot of the infrastructure issues and Sencha was the only tool in the market that has only one library full of components. It is not fashionable to use it, as developers always love new technologies, but Sencha is the best for business applications and has a lot of useful tools.

  • Excellent applications
  • Very good performance
  • Not very used, and developers don't like it at the beginning
