Appium is fundamentally an open basis for the automation testing tool that is individually been used for testing mobile applications. It provides you to work in three types of mobile application test:

The automation testing tool is mainly used for automating native as well as hybrid mobile apps. It tools up and implements the JSON wire protocol for communication between the iOS and Android apps. However, there are many different types of automation tools for mobile testing and automation. Some of the examples are MonkeyTalk, Frank, Calabash and KIF; these tools require a certain set of added agents for the process of collecting application code.

This makes it possible for the tools to communicate with mobile apps in a little difficult form. Moreover, this doesn’t happen with Appium testing. Appium automation testing provides an approach for running automated tests on actual devices, simulators, and emulators.

Why using an Appium automation application help?

b. One can make their own choice of language at ease instead of making things compulsory for using a particular language or framework.
c. There should be no need for a reinvention of the same process automation in the process of the mobile automation framework of API’s approach comes into act.

So, users should be sure enough and test the app’s performance at this speed.

4. Have a test of the app’s work ability with other phone elements

When you are running an application on the phone, you might receive a call; so make sure that you test against such situations in a way that your app should work well even if you get any form of system notification into the middle of it.

5. App testing ought to be done with full data load for higher precision

For accurate tests, app testing should be processed in low data loads. You must stay away from high data load in practical and realistic surroundings. So, you should choose to perform a QA app test with full data load to have higher accuracy and sturdiness.

6. Legalize the UI on dissimilar sizes of screen

When the mobile test is performed to test a designing challenge shouldn’t be missed. The UI design on the screen capacity comes out to be different on the other end, especially in the case of Android phones. So, make sure your app performs continually on various sizes of the screen and test the application in a view of that.

7. Verify your situation of losing an Internet connection

When the network and internet connection is not there, have a test that authenticates such situations and should make a check on the App testing to make sure that none of the problems worry in the concerned process of working.


Mobile app testing aims to have an ultimate value formation and adding together, over cost-effectiveness or keeping a check on the budget. Managing all the transactions helps to bring balance with a better approach.
