    1. Web inspector for Mobile Web

    Consider a google homepage. If i need to enter a text and hit search button, I need id of the both element. To get id , I am using inspector to find it. That's it. Attached mobile_web.png for reference


    2. App Inspector for Mobile App

    Same as Mobile Web. If i want to click an any element in App. I need id of the element. To get it, I am using uiautomatorviewer for inspecting mobile app.


    Tools to inspect:

    1. uiautomatorviewer for android only on Os=LINUX

    2. Appium for android and ios on Os=Mac -

    Hi Gokul, you might want to checkout Appium Desktop. Appium Desktop allows you to launch UI tests on Sauce and inspect UI elements.
