Testing and distributing apps
There are three ways you can test apps before you distribute them:
- You can emulate the app on your computer, provided you downloaded and installed the SDK for that app.
- You can scan the app into a mobile device using that device's QR reader. That provides a link to the saved app file at the PhoneGap site and allows the app to be downloaded onto your mobile device for testing.
- You can download the app and transfer it from your computer to a mobile device.
Emulating an app on your own computer is the simplest of these options, and we'll focus on that. But I'll also walk through how to load your app into a mobile device with a QR reader, and how to download the app.
