Appium Valuable Features

Sr Data Engineer at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees

I haven't explored other solutions in this particular area, but what I like best about Appium is the fact that it shares functions with Selenium. The extension of Selenium functions allows me to use all of the methods that exist in that domain, and it just makes it simpler for me. I've been using Selenium for some time as well, so using Appium just seems like a natural fit for me.

The best feature of Appium is that it allows you to inspect the element. With the Appium Inspector, you don't have to install another application to do the inspection. I also like that Appium has Android device connectivity. Currently, most people use Appium as automation software, and I haven't found any other tool that's more powerful than Appium.

We develop apps using the React Native framework, and Appium integrates well for testing those apps. The Appium automation framework also has good integration with GitHub Actions and plenty of other tools and frameworks, including BrowserStack. 

Appium also offers plenty of testing interactions, including swipes and other actions. It provides more interactions compared to other solutions like Selenium HQ, which is another tool we work with.

Appium Inspector is another excellent feature that provides us with a lot of information when dealing with app elements. One of our uses for this is determining which selectors are faster, as we want our apps to be as fast as possible.

It's open-source. 

There is quite a lot of support available and it has some features that are quite mature. Overall, it's a good tool for committing mobile applications. It's become kind of a norm across the industry, especially in the open-source world as it is kind of based on Selenium.

It's a straightforward setup.

The solution is stable.

It has great documentation and excellent community support. 

It is a scalable product.

If we want smart reporting, intelligent dashboards, and all those things, we can link it. It's very flexible as an open-source tool.

I like that Appium is an opensource tool. I also like it's cross-platform flexibility.

Appium provides a record-and-play option, and the commands are the same as those that Selenium uses. So a person who has some exposure to Selenium will be able to write a piece of code in Appium.

The most valuable feature is that it's easy to launch applications. Appium has everything that Selenium has. So many good tools support Appium. We can take some Excel sheets and use them to fill out the text box that's in there. We can also take screenshots of failures.

It's easy to connect the product. Within a single command, we can easily connect to the device. The connectivity is just that easy.

We get a list that shows all devices that are connected to the system.

It is a very easy initial setup.

The solution provides one roof or framework for both iOS and Android code bases. 

The library is extensive so the driver interacts with most functions or actions on mobile devices such as tap, swipe up, write down, touch actions, and opening or closing sessions.

The most valuable features of Appium are the in-built functionality, which we can use in our code. For example, move back, move front, navigate one page before, and navigate one page ahead. You can do this by using the in-built functions from Appium.
