More Appium Pros →

"The most valuable features are the integration and UI customization.""The most valuable features are the decorative style, model-driven development, and the fact that Mendix validates flows. Mendix is quick to develop because it's a low-code platform. It's very robust, flexible, open, and scalable. It's for a low-code customer. The tooling is also really good and it has mobile capabilities.""There are free online learning and certifications if a user would like to learn more and better understand the solution.""We find it intuitive and easy to use.""The features that I have found most valuable with Mendix are its business process management and its minimal low code, both from an interface perspective and from a process perspective.""The solution is stable."

"If it had more facility for configuration it would be a spectacular solution.""Stability is an area that needs some improvement."

More Appium Cons →

"Mendix is slightly less scalable than I'd like.""There are not enough developers who are using Mendix. The knowledge base available online and in the market is not as rich as other competitors.""There's no direct tech support.""You need experienced programmers and developers to understand this solution.""An improvement I would like to see is the ability to version manage independent modules. Their version management for software repositories must be better. It's good and you can do it, but it needs work.""There needs to be an increase in the number of the UI components."

    Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS or Android SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser (Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in 'Browser' app on Android). Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a "webview" -- a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app. Importantly, Appium is "cross-platform": it allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS and Android testsuites.
    The Mendix App Platform enables enterprise development teams to rapidly build, integrate, and deploy beautiful multi-device applications. Enterprise IT teams that need to quickly build innovative and differentiating applications in close collaboration with business stakeholders use Mendix.
