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

  • Offers an excellent user interface application to assist in designing cases by previewing app screens and retrieving names of the elements you intend on interacting with
  • Provides a generally accessible documentation suite on the web, which you will reference quite often
  • Handles the connection between Appium's server and Xcode's tools during execution well

Cons

  • There are a number of expected methods that are not implemented, yet. With a similar sounding name as Selenium with similar functions, people who are familiar with Selenium try to use methods that appear to be available, but give a "not yet implemented" exception when run.
  • Documentation can be confusing.
  • Setup was a difficult process. This may not necessarily be the case once you figure everything out, but the whole figuring it out process was difficult and I ran into many, many problems when I first started.

Alternatives Considered

Appium is one of the most valuable fully featured open-source tools with good support for iOS and Android mobile automation which cannot be matched even by enterprise tools.

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.

Return on Investment

  • Open-source tool
  • No negative impact as investment required only for scripting of test cases

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