JS Foundation
1. It's open source which supports range of languages, operating systems and languages. Well suited for Android and IOS mobile automation. 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

The more our business grew, the more we felt the risk on the horizon in that we needed somewhere to really manage and document our testing evidence. So, TestDrive helped us through the testing phase of the project by documenting and being able to access testing results, and also we had a broader scale view around regression testing.

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.

We have not tried other similar products so it is difficult to say, but we definitely enjoy this product and the support team to work 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.

  • Thanks to TestDrive, our automation is always ready to run, and the script maintenance lag is removed, testing can go ahead, and issues are found quicker.
  • We no longer worry about varying response times for the application, nor do we no need to code "timing loops" to check if the application is in the right state.
