What is the difference between Appium client and Appium GUI app?

I always use the GUI app when creating and debugging tests, especially to find iOS locators, so I have never considered using the Appium client. Since I can’t use the latest GUI app (1.5.3) to see iOS XCUITest locators, I am fishing around for an alternative. Can that be done using the appium client?


I’m using the one the Macaca team created.

I used the solution described in the article before the Macaca one. Works great. Thanks for passing it along!

I’m glad it worked for you. There are a few things I’ve had to deal with using it.

I had to run ps from the terminal to see what ports the inspector works on, and occasionally I have to kill a few things.
