Mobile is very rapidly becoming the biggest medium to reach the consumers as the adoption of mobile phones is increasing. A Mobile App or Mobile web application is the platform which enables you to get connected with your desired audience. Consumers use various different platforms and devices to access your mobile apps.
Appium is an open source, cross-platform mobile test automation tool to automate the testing for native, hybrid and mobile web applications. Appium comes with support for Android, iOS on real devices as well as simulators and emulators. At core, Appium is nothing but an HTTP server written in node.js. In working, it almost acts same as Selenium which perceives http requests from selenium client libraries and it handles those requests in different ways depending upon the platforms.
Appium is one of the best options available today in the market and is widely adopted by the organizations for their mobile test automation needs. Also with growing supporter base and stronger community, it is getting easier for enterprises to adopt it. Appium lets you write the tests in any language which is supported by Selenium, using the WebDriver API. If you are trying to test the Andoird Apps then, Appium automates it using the UIAutomator library, which is part of the Android SDK. So the learning curve is a bit easier if you have already used Selenium.
The ease of testing both Android and iOS apps makes it one of the best cross-platform tool. You can run your test either on Emulators or on Real devices with Appium using the WebDriver JSON Wire protocol.
