Appium Inspector is released in two formats:

  1. Standalone desktop application for macOS, Windows, and Linux - download it from the Releases section

The Inspector has many features in addition to its app inspection abilities:

Cloud Platforms

The Inspector has built-in integrations with various cloud service provider platforms:

SauceLabs HeadSpin BrowserStack LambdaTest
TestingBot ExperiTest RobotQA Remote TestKit
BitBar Kobiton Perfecto Pcloudy


We may remove cloud providers if they no longer work properly with this inspector, as there is no compatibility.

Reporting Issues

If you run into a problem, first check whether you can reproduce it without the Inspector, by using a different Appium client.
