Appium is an open source library used to drive your native and hybrid mobile applications. Appium automates the execution of commands and gestures on mobile devices so you can automate testing on your computer. By eliminating slow, time consuming manual testing of mobile apps, Appium can help you test more efficiently and get your apps released faster. And, with Appium you can run tests in parallel, further speeding up your testing. In our experience, most users see at least a 10x acceleration in testing once they automate the process.
Appium is for all mobile apps written for Android or iOS so you can develop a set of tests and run them across the majority of mobile devices in use today. Appium is an extension of Selenium which is the standard, open source, framework for automating tests of web apps. With both Appium and Selenium you have two powerful tools with which you can test on all the platforms that your apps run on.
Sauce Labs has the world's largest cloud for running Appium and Selenium tests. We free you from the hassle of buying, maintaining and configuring mobile devices for manual testing.
