Subject [GitHub] cordova-medic pull request #106: Appium updates

    Appium updates

    Please review @alsorokin !
    ### Platforms affected
    iOS and Android
    ### What does this PR do?
    Fixes and cleans up certain interactions with appium:
     - Appium version bumped
     - Desired capabilities in Selenium-land (and thus Appium) is usually tricky and obtuse.
Clarified some usage of it as well as forcing string for `platformVersion`. Removed `browserName`
completely as it is not applicable to hybrid apps.
     - I removed the `setTimeout`s around process killing, as on my Mac w/ node v6.9.1 that
would lead to improper termination of the appium process. I defer to you, @alsorokin, on whether
that is a good change or not.
    ### What testing has been done on this change?
    Tested on Android 5.1 emulator w/ contacts plugin appium tests.

    Slight detail expansion on usage instructions. Adding a `--verbose` flag to dump out appium
outputs to the log. Capabilities: appium no longer uses `--avd`, so remove it. Always force
platformVersion to a string. A few extra logs added for clarity of flow. Removed settimeouts
on process killing (noticed it would not clean up appium properly with them in place).
