Comparison Between SeeTest & Appium Tool

  • Re-usability
  • Appium: reusable library needs to be developed
  • SeeTest: Many commonly used function are made available in SeeTest library .
  • Hybrid App
  • Appium: Identification of web elements is a tedious task, also we need to switch driver repeatedly from native to web view and vice versa.
  • SeeTest: Elements of web and native can be identification very easily, and no need to switch driver object, just parameter value works to identify an object is in web or native view. XPath Language full support.
  • Reliability Appium: elements identification methods won’t work sometime i.e. xx element is not clickable by appium
  • SeeTest: very reliable
  • Cost
  • Appium: Free
  • SeeTest: Paid, one-month free license available
  • Parallel Execution
  • Appium: Possible with Selenium grid
  • SeeTest: Experitest cloud software available for parallel execution
  • Text Object Identification
  • Appium: not available
  • SeeTest: OCR engine with support for all languages (inc. Far Eastern languages) and special characters
