What is Appium?

Appium is an extremely popular open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms.  Appium is “cross-platform”: it allows you to write tests for multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS, Android, and Windows test suites.

Appium Philosophy

Appium was designed to meet mobile automation needs according to a philosophy outlined by the following four tenets:

  1. You shouldn’t have to recompile your app or modify it in any way in order to automate it.
  2. You shouldn’t be locked into a specific language or framework to write and run your tests.
  3. A mobile automation framework shouldn’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to automation APIs.
  4. A mobile automation framework should be open source, in spirit and practice as well as in name!
