Welcome to the new appium-discuss

Hi everyone i could really use your help on this one, i’ve created an authomation project for android devices (using jsystem,applitools,and selenium,and appium) - all worked very well, but when i’ve tried to build a similar project on iOS, i came across a lot of problems,

The primary one is that when i’m trying to switch (during the authomation test) between different apps, Appium get stuck, and i cannot continue the test (i’m using a mac) and my code is in JAVA.
Any suggestions how to do so? This is very important in my mobile authomation test, since the app i’m testing is opened from other apps.

The switch is fail once my app was opened via another app, for example clicking on file that was received in email, will initiate my app, and then appium get stuck

Thanks in advance.

I am automation the android SDK player. My Video player is Android SDK player not HTML5 or Flash. How can we perform the below scenarios on Android SDK player.
Subtitle detection inside the video player - Presence of a subtitle.

  1. Lip sync/reading.
  2. How to get the metadata or thumbnail of a video player.
  3. How to detect a blank or black screen.
    Can we automate above scenarios for Android SDK player? I am using the Appium for mobile app automation. Do we have any external lib/tool/jar available which will support to appium to perform above scenarios? Any JavaScript actions?
