This article begins with an introduction to Appium Desktop, its benefits and a code sample. If you prefer to watch, go ahead and scroll down to see a video tutorial that provides a full road tour of Appium Desktop, with a working example developed incrementally.
Appium Desktop is an open source application for Mac, Windows and Linux that gives you the power of the Appium automation server in a flexible UI. It has been developed by the Appium contributors at Sauce Labs and is currently available here: https://github.com/appium/appium-desktop/releases.
The goal of Appium Desktop is to make interacting with Appium much easier. It does this by wrapping up the core components of Appium in a graphical user interface that allows testers to quickly create and update mobile testing scripts.
