Overall Satisfaction with Appium

Appium is used by my team, QA Automation, to assist in automating testing for our mobile iOS and Android applications. Appium helps increase our automated testing coverage to handle mobile, it is open-source and cross-platform compatible and handles native, hybrid, and mobile web applications which are a huge business problem.
  • 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.
  • Improved test coverage - 20%
  • Freed up manual testing resources to more important tasks
  • Application bugs/defects are found and resolved quicker
I have not used any other product that compares to Appium in the realm of mobile automated testing.
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.
