When exploring automation for Android with running appium server, I noticed using selenium webdriver my code works fine. In a previous example, I saw an appium driver for ios automation. So what is the basic difference with selenium or appium webdriver?

Appium vs Selenium

Selenium Webdriver - Support mobile web applications only WebDriver has become the de facto standard for automating web browsers, and is a W3C Working Draft.

Appium Webdriver - Support native and hybrid mobile apps This class inherits from the RemoteWebDriver class, but it adds in additional functions that are useful in the context of a mobile automation test through the Appium server.
