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.

It is very appropriate to connect all test cases with the user's history and connect with all JIRAs with TCs. By saving all the test documents in one place it gives us a lot of order and ease of use allows to run my test cases in different browsers and have the execution of the test for each execution separately and very useful your automation script for our requirement, but I'm still exploring in that area. should have some built-in tool to capture the screenshots.

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

  • It is difficult to configure all the technologies.
  • It should be possible to use any version of Java.
  • You have to configure Redis, Elasticsearch and, Java before you can install.
  • Sometimes [there are] loading issues.

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.
