With Appium Studio, you can cut both the cost as well as the effort of running your automated mobile tests on Appium. This will help you to release high-quality apps even faster.
This FREE tool, Appium Studio community edition, allows the users to enjoy improved service and community support through the Appium Studio forums.
A list of Appium tutorials are included in this series in simple terms along with their concerned screenshots and examples for your easy understanding. By the end of this series, you will be able to completely understand each and every aspect & concept of Appium Studio right from its installation till the end.
There are three key features making up the Appium Studio test automation framework:
#1) A development tool for visual testing, providing users with the features like device reflection and object spy, to aid in the writing of quicker, more robust tests, etc.
#2) Simple, fast set-up and installation.
#3) The execution engine – this adds a robust, stable engine to the Appium that is designed with the mobile testing environment in mind, allowing for out-of-application tests as well as parallel execution.
These three features together improve Appium greatly and address some of its drawbacks. Time to testing is reduced, and so is the cost & effort, thanks to iOS testing on Windows. Coverage is also improved for out-of-app tests.
Tests and their execution are made more stable, and the reportage is clear and precise.OS version support is guaranteed, and the Appium Studio has built-in support for large-scale parallel execution.
Given below are the two versions of Appium Studio that are available now:
#1) Appium Studio
This tool is free and downloadable, and it will fully integrate with whatever your current testing environment is. Appium testing can be done on real, local devices that are connected via USB to your testing computer. Appium tests are compatible with any programming language (e.g., Java, C#, Python, JS, Ruby).
The studio also integrates with your IDE, thereby allowing for seamless transitions between programming and testing.
This plugin is also free and downloadable, thereby allowing you to perform your Appium tests, from development to execution to debugging, directly through Eclipse. The Experitest data center has partnered with Appium to allow 600 min. of free access to their real mobile devices for testing with your download.
