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.

JavaScript and JSON support, Test Studio supports JavaScript function invocation and validation directly from your code. The testing tool also understands JSON objects, can handle strongly typed objects returned from JavaScript, as well as access to J QUERY API's.

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.

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

  • When telerik introduced Kendo UI for Angular it was very slow to implement every component
  • The Gantt chart within Kendo and Telerik reporting - I would like that to get better

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.

Rich UI, lot of ready to use themes/css. ASP.NET has very limited capabilities compare than telerik.

Telerik

  • If the DOM of your application is heavy then Test studio will create lots of performance issues while recording, like Test studio.
  • The application can sometimes hang.
