Workshop Title: Automate mobile gestures using Appium



Gesture-driven devices changed the way we think about interactions. The success of mobile applications depends on how well the interactions are being implemented and in turn its user experience. Touch Actions were ruling the way we automate mobile gestures for quite a while. As of Appium 2.0, we are completely W3C compliant i.e. we have deprecated touch action in favor of Actions API from W3C specifications. In this workshop, we will take you through the ways in which you could automate mobile gestures with and without Appium Plugins.


  • Evolution of touch gestures

  • Intro to W3C Actions API

  • Non standard ways to automate gestures

  • Intro to Appium 2.0

  • Appium Gestures plugin
