Dakota Pitts-Price

Awesome Idea but gives an error Gives an error as soon as my client attempts to make an HTTP request to another site. I will happily provide a stacktrace if you request it. Thanks


its giving only html view .. local not working..we can check this on browser.. plz tell me how local notification can i test..because everytime uploading on adobe build and then checking is really very irritating

Samsung note 3 Error Failed to fire after 5sec. Please fix issue.

Parth Arora

It was not working on my lava iris x8 waste of net and money it was error time out continuosly

Jermaine Francoeur

Going to save a lot of time Now that I don't need to compile or even setup tools for compilation this will save so much time. Because lets face it, phoneGap build is kind of crap because of the whole upload and download phases, not to mention how long it takes to compile on their oddly slow servers. Anything I can do cut time is wonderful.

Kashif Rafi

simply awsome I just installed and tested this app, and its awesome, i changed the code on my system and the changes intantly appeared on my cell.

AmeerahRon Van Braun

Perfect except 1 thing I love this app. I also run the ios version on my iphone. My only quam is the lack of debugging available. It would be really great if there was a js debugger avail either on the phone or the phonegap desktop. Other than that this one app sold me on using phonegap.

Lyall van der Linde

Please add QR code Plz implement a qr code instead of us having to type our ip adress.

Michael Duddles

Elegant and highly functional

Vishal Gulati

Did not work..

Nick Emblow

fariz izwan

Not working Don't know why

Mohamed Amine

Thank you for this app. It will make previewing app much easier.

Rajesh Kannan

It'a amazing It'a amazing. It's very helpful for Android and iOS developers.

Saki Fukuda

Its Great its a lot easier than compiling and tranfer it to the phone

Harmoney Lee

Htc cannot tap with 3&4 fingers.

Tiberiu Chetreanu

FileSystem error You're developer app has the following bug: when taking a picture and trying to use the FILE_URI camera option, a HTML image cannot get that FILE_URI because of "Not allowed to load local resource: file:///storage/..." This does not happen if the app is ran independently of the developer app. Please fix.


It is truly amazing!!!!! It is totally amazing!!!!! this stuff totally change the way of web & app development, especially for a beginner as me. Thank you, hoping more brilliant developers can join this project !!!!

Lewis Shaw

Pretty much just a fullscreen webview I've been using Phonegap for a while now and this app isn't as good as it should be. The default plugin's don't work in it, its 3-4 finger touch feature don't work (works in hydration though) so it's essentially just a full screen web view..

Muhammad Umer

Anyway to debug it live on computer Ok this runs but how can i debug it

Diomedes Frias Lopez

Diomedes Frias I love this APP, makes me be more productive

Alexander Salas

Very useful

Huy Trần

Lack of permission request Permissions listed in store include camera but the real permissions do not have camera permission. I can not test functions which use camera like photo capture or barcode scanner. Please fix it. Thanks.

Sathish Kumar

Cool !!! Working now Thanks for fixing n it works fantastic in moto x 4.4.4 ....made my testing easier..:)

Deniel Bori

Need some help! The proxy doesn't work. Tell me how to use it.

Demetre Young

What? Maybe I didn't understand this apps purpose, I try to connect to server and it just says error. Can I not design an app?

Kamrul Islam

A must have for phonegap development This is a life saver. I don't need to build to see it on actual device.

Tobias Kopietz

Timesaver Support custom plugins and it's perfect

Joven Albarida

Added Nice tool I hope android will have easy testing environment like this in the future

Ahmed Ramadan

FileSystem is not working ! requestFileSystem is not working !

Артем Юхименко

Error!!! Timer out! Pleased help...


Completely useless Doesn't work with message 'timed out'. But app opens correctly via browser.

Фади Шазбек

Getting An error Using Windows desktop app, when downloaded the Android App, and try to connect it says: Error! Timed out! In the browser on the desktop i can go to the IP:port and see the result, but not with this app.

Bernard Lechler

On the upside it does what it advertises, it works nicely in conjunction with the PhoneGap desktop app. On the downside, it doesn't seem to have mych rhyme or reason as to when it decides to reload on its own. The three and four finger taps seem to work sometimes. I find that I am tapping the screen often wondering if this feature actually works. Refreshing the app takes two minutes at times. Perplexingly it seems that there is no better alternative; frustrating but it gets the job done.

Pramod Bhandari

Awesome Its really feel easy work

udbhav joshi

After the latest update the application is failing to connect to the application under development. It continuously says "Unable to download archive from the server, unable to properly connect to the server".

Don Coleman

Now includes the Bluetooth low energy plugin!

Navneeth Karunakaran

Simply awesome I just installed and tested application. Updated instantly. Loved it.

Mustafijur Rahaman

could not connect with this version could not connect with this version its says update cli. I update & download latest one but its did not work.please solve this problem.

jon schreyers

Refresh issues The latest update has caused frustrating issues. 4 finger tap no longer refreshes the files, only the app. You now need to exit the app, force stop it then relaunch it to see the changes you've made. This is adding a lot of time to development. It is also really slow to load now. Old version was much better, even if it wasn't consistent in loading. A few refreshes would sort that.

Abdullah Zubair

Connection error Could not connected through this app. App said update the cli. Previous version was OK for test my app. Disappointed with newer version

Murli Israni

Nice app .. really productive development. Issue: Unbale to handle the third party plugins testing.. e.g. Toast etc. Will be great if we get the exposure to handle the same while development. Thanks,

Joanne Bentulan

Unable to connect Still not able to connect via this app nor mobile browser.

Birdie C deQuay

Good Loved it nice platform

Kiki Syendi

Update version not works. In previous version its works fine but after I update can't connect/ download file to device. Please fix this. I use phonegap desktop version 0.1.2

Matthew Helenek

Great test platform I've tried a dozen development platforms and this is the most reliable test platform I've found. I use a cloud editor linked to Dropbox, which syncs my development files to all machines. Wherever node is running, the code gets updated and I can sync to my test devices without any manual steps. I can also make updates from anywhere and they're immediately available to any testers.

Khalid Adisendjaja

Cannot rely on this for debugging Will give you lot of undefined plugin message, better to run on your device directly

Mehrdad M

I can't to connect !! On my nexus 5 with android 6 !! Why?? I need this

Raghu Chinna

Error In new we r not accessing external links in app please fix it...

Dustin Morrison

This is perfect. Every other app coding system (i.e. Unity, and Android Studio) that I've used is a lot more complicated than this. It is also perfectly streamlined; I make the edits, and it shows on my phone, without unnecessary compiling.

Arvind Mittal

Superb for Mobile App Development Surely recommend for mobile app development and testing.

Abhishek kedar

Nothing is working App justs hangs at the downloading screen.

Sandeep Dhaniya

Mayur SutAriya

Download error Please don't use this platform ...every time occur error and don't download server error show...

Jacques Fernandes

app development made easy! For those who want to make an app, but want it to be: 1) multiplatform and 2) fast and easy to test. This app makes it fast and easy to prototype the app as you develop it! Recommended that you have a WiFi connection ?


Download error Rooted Samsung S5. App never asked for permissions to network so I don't think it is trying. Of course I am on the same network as the app.

Sagar Acharya

Awesome, i can able to see my changes immediately. Loved it :-)

Trevor Best

Good for testing apps although since it started making a zip file for download, is difficult to actually refresh the app with changes just made to the source. Also the --no-autoreload doesn't seem to work anymore.

Jordan Santoro

Awesome App If you're having a download error check your firewall might be blocking ports or anti-virus.

Renato Jr. Javier

Unable to use Always showing Download Error.

Brett W

Nishanth Kumar

Connection error Couldn't connect to server .. !! It says .. Couldn't download archive files

samarth kulkarni

Error Cant connect to server

Voica Adrian

Priceless companion app in development mode. For those that "can not connect to server", RTFM! - you have to be in the same network with the computer that serves the app and the ports should be open (duh?)...

van amaranto

Error WiFi is very strong but still errors when connecting to server

Mahdi Baghery

Not bad! Because... Its good but havent a helper to use on pc and develop the app!

Vaibhav Shah

Phonegap Nice .. But may I know where the apk is build in app folder? I have been searching but I could not find apk in app folder.

Ryan Brinkhurst

Stopped updating On July 26, 2016 I would have given five stars, but the app stopped updating on Android and iOS, even after uninstalling and reinstalling. Normally I wouldn't have rated it so low, but this has been a known issue for years. Just to be clear, I had no trouble connecting. The app will now only refresh if you close it and open it again.

Mitesh Rudani

Chuttya banaye I had to give one star because you made efforts to build this app or eles i would give half star... Waste app. Cant connect ..

Liam Wright

Working 100% The below complaining about it not connecting are not changing the default ip on the app to the computer they're using. This app works 100% as said for me.

Oliver Moonsamy

Terrible Waste of time.. Does not connect, always error.

Akhilesh Kovangal
