Appium

Appium works well for well-structured mobile applications test automation that is particularly easy to leverage when different pages of the app use similar building blocks. If it takes time for some content in the app to be rendered, ask your dev team to add progress indicators and ensure they are accessible. That might be more complicated to do with Appium, though, if there's no good contact with Dev team established so you can request accessibility IDs added quickly enough when needed.Appium supports another locator strategies as well though (such as xPath or iOS class chain on iOS) but they wouldn't work as fast so you may get really slow tests.

Swiftify

It is recommended to use Swiftify in any situation that requires iOS development because even if you develop just in Swift or just in Objective-C, it could be helpful for researching and investigating purposes.Additionally, if you need to convert big quantities of code from Objective-C to Swift, this tool will optimise that work. It will not translate a whole class of 2000 lines perfectly, but after converting it you can review the code and modify the lines that have not been properly converted, making you save more than the 50% of the time in that case.I've not been able to test it properly as I only used the trial version and it is really limited.

Pros

Appium

  • 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.

Swiftify

  • It's especially good for people that know Swift, but have very little experience with Objective-C. It gives you a first cut of code translation. Then you can go from there.

Cons

Appium

  • Execution against live iOS devices can be quite slow. This will likely be improved in the near future
  • Challenging for a new user to take on without guidance from a veteran
  • Upgrading to a new version of Xcode before the tool is updated can render you suite useless, until an update is available

Swiftify

  • New conversion languages, like Python or C++ would be great.
  • Some more free tries would help to know how important/helpful it would be for iOS projects.

Alternatives Considered

Appium

Hard to compare Appium to Xcode and Android sdk because Appium uses them, but those are the only comparisons I could come up with to compare Appium with another product. I'm sure there may be other mobile automation tools, but none are as mainstream as Appium or with the support. You will need to install both Xcode and Android sdk to have Appium function.

Swiftify

Swiftify tries to convert the code even if the code can not be executed in a real situation.I chose Swiftify because most of the times you just need to convert one line, one method... That of course, it is using and used by other code that you didn't add in the conversion code, but you just need to convert that for now. In this situation, Swiftify converts the code, other ones such as iSwift will report an error in the code and will not convert it.
