Appium

Appium is well suited for native, mobile web, and hybrid applications of android and iOS but it does not support Windows mobile applications.

Zeplin

It's great if you need to work with interfaces created by partners or agencies, since it offers a great way to inspect and understand the specifications. Also, it's a great way to create style guides to create a really solid user interface. On the other hand, it doesn't offer a fluid way to navigate between screens like other prototyping applications like InVision and Marvel.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Provides dimensions across iOS, Android and Web which saves developers from a lot of guess and check when implementing designs
  • Allows for easy download of digital design assets for developers to easily organize and implement
  • Great user experience in terms of the product itself and a great value for your money
  • Automatically generates CSS for web designs which is AMAZING!

Cons

  • 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

  • The uploading and syncing of assets is great for sketch and photoshop but we use illustrator and that can be cumbersome/tedious at times.
  • There are certain elements that have been a bit confusing to navigate at times, but for the most part, it's pretty user-friendly
  • More integrations

Alternatives Considered

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.

For my company needs, Zeplin comes as the best tool in its category. Zeplin's competitors are great tools but they either offer way too many features or are priced above Zeplin with the same features.Zeplin is in the right spot for both pricing and features.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Better communication between design and development teams
  • More accurate work from developers, as they now have access to all the necessary info about the design and its elements and they don't have to ask designers about it
