Ionic Android Native app not automatable

Hi Team,

Currently i have a ionic android native app, I am trying to do an automation test on the android apk build using ionic frame work.

I am unable to automate the android native mobile app using appium(which is the tool used to automate the android native apps.) as the send keys action / identification of elements are not doable currently.

If you people have any suggestion or prototype for automating the android apps build using ionic , help me out.
