Appium is an open source, cross-platform Test automation tool for native, hybrid and mobile web apps, tested on simulators (iOS, FirefoxOS), emulators (Android), and real devices (iOS, Android, FirefoxOS). Appium drives various native automation frameworks and provides an API based on Selenium’s WebDriver JSON wire protocol. Android support uses the UiAutomator framework for newer platforms and Selendroid for older Android platforms.
