Posted: August 7th, 2015Author:

Being able to share an app with a customer, a colleague, or a friend so they can test and run an app is a core benefit in a mobile platform. Since the beginning, the platform has made it very simple to test and run you mobile app in the browser or as a hybrid app via the Mobile Tester app for iOS and for Android. With the tester app, you can run and test your hybrid app, including any native APIs, without having to install the app on a device each time.

We are happy to announce today that anyone can test and run your mobile app via the Tester app—even without an account. This means after installing the tester app, anyone can try your app!

Top Three Challenges in Enterprise Mobile App Development

Posted: December 10th, 2014Author:

Three things

Enterprises are adopting mobile technologies at an unprecedented rate. As Business News Daily recently reported, 1.3 billion workers will go mobile by 2015, and with that massive number, the need for enterprise mobile apps can only skyrocket.

With that increase, many mobile app developers will be called upon to create internal mobile enterprise apps. These apps have many requirements and considerations that differ from the typical app destined for the public app stores. In this article, we will take the top three challenges and share some tips on how to meet these challenges:

  1. Security
  2. User Interface
  3. Choosing a Development Technology

Test Your Mobile Apps Faster With Tester for iOS (and Android)

Posted: December 20th, 2013Author:

One of the best ways to test your mobile app is on the device. This is a must if your app uses native (PhoneGap) API such as the Camera or the Barcode scanner. Installing the app on the device after every small update is very time consuming. That’s exactly why we built the Tester app. It’s a very simple app that allows you to launch your native app and test any native APIs without needing to install it each time. We had the Android version for some time now and now we have also launched the iOS version.

Install the app on your device:

Install the iOS version.
Install the Android version

Once the app is installed, sign in with the same credentials as you use for and you will see a list of all your apps. Simply select the app you want to launch and start testing! This allows you quicly to test any native APIs used in the app. If you make any changes to the app (in builder), simply relaunch the app to get the latest version. It’s that simple.



For more information about testing your app, please visit Testing your app in documentation.

Exporting And Building PhoneGap App for iOS

Posted: February 2nd, 2012Author:

One of the really great features in mobile app builder is that you can quickly export the app as mobile Web, Android or iOS:


For Android, you can get a ready for the app market binary file (Release binary). Just take the file and upload it to Android Market. It’s that simple. You can watch a webinar where an app is built, exported for Android and published.

iOS is little bit more involved (Apple requires to provide your developer information to build). There are two ways to go about it. First, export the app as xCode project and then follow the steps outlined in this guide to build the app.

A second option is to use PhoneGap Build cloud service.

We are working on adding functionality where you will be able to build iOS app inside

One of the great things about Mobile Apps Builder is its support for end-to-end development, going all the way from an idea in one person’s mind to an app running in thousands of phones. In this webinar, we’ll show you exactly how it’s done (and how easy it is) by walking you through a hands-on example. The focus will be on exporting options for apps. In this case, we’ll export an Android binary (.apk) and publish to the Android Market. Of course, we’ll quickly build an app first, so you can learn or refresh your memory about how to build the UI with jQuery Mobile, connect to REST services, and test the app. at AnDevCon and Mountain View JavaScript Meetup
