Appium Review

  • 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.
  • There were some cases when Appium caused the application under test to crash. We were unable to allocate the reason at the support forums.
  • It has some backward compatibility issues. Although Appium developers state it's fully backward compatible, we still need to use particular combinations of Appium's mobile OS version to keep the most robust setup. The wrong combination may cause Appium to be unable to interact with some elements in the tested app.
  • It uploads WebDriver agent to iOS devices, and that may hang sometimes after several tests execution as its cache gets polluted.

  • Appium has no dependency on mobile OS whether it is android or IOS.
  • It supports multiple programming language like java, python, ruby , C# etc.
  • Supports automation of hybrid, native and web apps
  • Open Source and huge community support
  • Selenium webdriver compatible
  • Supports multiple test framework
  • Appium configuration is a bit complex and tricky some times to implement all kind of mobile OS versions
  • There should be some utility to compare screens of mobile apps
  • A skilled automation tester is required to build the quality code for automating mobile test cases

  • 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.
  • Element browser sometimes is unreliable and has sporadic fails.
  • Appium running is a bit slow, compared to tests written with Appium and with Espresso or XCTest.

  • Offers an excellent user interface application to assist in designing cases by previewing app screens and retrieving names of the elements you intend on interacting with
  • Provides a generally accessible documentation suite on the web, which you will reference quite often
  • Handles the connection between Appium's server and Xcode's tools during execution well
  • 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

  • Allows for a one-stop library to interact with both Android and iOS devices.
  • Appium has the backing of Sauce Labs, so there's considerable support for this library.
  • It's free! Open source with a lot of community support.
  • There are a number of expected methods that are not implemented, yet. With a similar sounding name as Selenium with similar functions, people who are familiar with Selenium try to use methods that appear to be available, but give a "not yet implemented" exception when run.
  • Documentation can be confusing.
  • Setup was a difficult process. This may not necessarily be the case once you figure everything out, but the whole figuring it out process was difficult and I ran into many, many problems when I first started.

  • It works across multiple platforms.
  • It is an open source project.
  • It can handle native, hybrid and mobile web applications.
  • Since it is open source, we're at the hands of the developers whenever there is a business critical emergency.
  • We've run into issues which are not well documented and have spent considerable time communicating back and forth between the appium team to resolve them.
  • Setup could be simplified.
