Appium

Appium is a freely distributed open source mobile application UI testing framework to allow native, hybrid as well as web application testing solutions.

Appium UI Testing Framework

Appium is built with a thought that testing the native apps shouldn’t require including an SDK or recompiling the app and that you should be able to use your preferred test practices, frameworks and tools. It is an open source project that has made design and tool decisions to encourage a vibrant contributing community.
