At a certain point when you are making development for mobile, your have to, like for the desktop, to leverage on test automated tool for mobile application. For mobile, you may find 2 solutions that are widely common in mobile environment : Appium and Calabash.
Our propose was to handle the tests with the same tool in both of the most popular OS : Android and iOS.
With Appium you are not force to give your source to an external company, that is mainly very time consuming. With Appium, as the in-house tester, you can handle test automation on both Android and iOS mobile application.
Appium provide a client-side that is very helpful for non-developer like me for instance.

What more could you ask for?
