Ranorex should work just fine with desktop-based UWP apps. But you are out of luck with mobile apps. Hope this helps?

PS: As mentioned before, the easiest way to check if this or that technology (and app in general) is working fine with Ranorex is actually try it with Ranorex (at least track its controls with Spy). Nothing anyone here will say may be true with the actual app, so it's always a good idea to make a small proof of concept before promising something ;)
