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

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.

Well suited scenarios:
  • For testing multiple Mobile OS versions like Android and IOS
  • To implement automation of different app types, like hybrid, native and web.
  • To integrate into the same framework with Selenium web driver.
  • To connect with 3rd party cloud services
Less suited scenario:
  • Skilled automation tester is not easily available.

Appium is well suited when you need to write automation tests with low costs. It's very simple to start up, configure and run. It doesn't depend on the application platform and is portable to many programming languages like Java, Ruby, etc. If you have a team of developers and SDETs and you need to increase the code coverage simply and fast, Appium is your best choice.

If you want a full featured suite of interface tests using a language other than Swift for iOS projects, Appium is second to none. Appium allows you to separate an automated system test suite from Xcode and offload its execution to a cloud solution. If your suite is a smaller smoke test, you may be better off simply using Xcode.

When testing on both Android and iOS (and who isn't?) then Appium is a great option. If there are some special scenarios that are needed to be tested like working with a device's file system or anything that might be outside of the app (maybe switching between apps while testing) then Appium may not meet all of your needs. I say that cautiously because there may be some functionality that I'm just not aware of yet or maybe coming soon that would work with this. I just haven't come across it, yet.

Appium is perfectly suited for anyone trying to automate their testing suite to cover mobile applications. Since it is open-source it is continually being improved and does not require any expensive licensing fees to get that mobile application coverage needed. If that is a non-issue, it would be preferable to use another tool that is better documented and has a support team to diagnose any issues.
