Testing Your App on a Device

To test your app on a real device, you will need to build for a device.

  1. Contact us to set you up with device builds.
  2. For Android testing, no further setup is needed.
  3. For iOS testing, we need to setup your development certificates before you can begin.

Once your device builds are enabled, visit the app customizer Build and Preview tab. Click "Device testing", and you should see something like this:

You can select the type of build you want, and then click Build App.

Device builds take 10 - 20 minutes, when it is complete you will receive an email with a link to download your app for testing.

Android Device Testing

Click the link in the successful build email on your device, and follow the installation instructions. You can also visit the installation page on a desktop computer and click "Share" to get a QR code. You can then scan the QR code from any Android device to install.

iOS Device Testing

Any iOS device you wish to test with must be included in your list of devices on your Apple Developer account before your certificates are created.

If the app will download but will not install, the problem is that your device was not included on your profile. You need to add your device UDID, then regenerate your development provisioning profile with all devices checked.

Please see this article for detailed installation instructions.
