Hybrid mobile apps combine the best user experience of native apps with the simplicity of web apps. However, testing these becomes difficult because you are really testing a native app. Manual testing doesn't cut it in today's world so you need a testing framework that both supports native app testing AND automation. That framework is called Appium
Sauce Labs support the open source automation framework called Appium, based on a subset of the Selenium API. Appium is an extension of Selenium and automates all those actions that are unique to mobile devices like: tapping, pinching and rotating screens. With Appium you can automate all the actions a human will do with your app and make it simple for you to run the same test across a huge variety of mobile emulators and real devices. By testing across more devices and browsers you can ensure much higher app quality before your app hits the market. And, because you can automate these tests, your spend less time testing than before!
