Few differences between Appium and Calabash

  1. Appium support Many Languages Java, C#, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, But Calabash supports only is Ruby.
  2. Calabash has two projects running in parallel: Calabash-Android and Calabash-iOS In Appium: both Android and iOS are clubbed into one.

  3. Appium has a recording option that would be useful for beginners in software testing company

  4. Calabash cannot automate the browser. Appium can do.


I think appium is widly using by the testers.And also you can get more help from the commiunity if you are moving with appium. And also so many video tutorials available for appium too.
