- Deep links testing
- test execution in IOS is slower compared to Android
- Finding the elements on mobile
- Appium server

- 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.

- Provides a generally accessible documentation suite on the web, which you will reference quite often
