Hi I’m new in Appium automation tests and try to write my first Test Program. I want to select an item in a contact list.

I tried to use

Appium 1.9.1
java version “1.8.0_181”
Android 8.1.0
I have heard that Appium 1.9.1 is not able to find the UIbuttos !!! so I stuck here. Is there any other tricks to activate the page
