The IonicView application is a great way to test our your application on a device without having to go through all of the software setup to deploy it to a real device. You can also share your IonicView upload with other people so that they can check out the application.
For a real beta, you would want to do an actual application install since the IonicView runs your application inside of a container but for quick testing, you can’t beat the IonicView application.
Ionic has several tools out there such as a drag and drop UI creator, push notifications, and the Ionic view which all require an ionic.io free account.
On your device, look up Ionic View in the app store. Below are the direct links for each OS.
After you finish install IonicView, open up the application and login with your email and password that you signed up with.
Open a command prompt, navigate to your Lab5 folder and run the command
$ ionic upload
Open a command prompt, navigate to your Lab5 folder share the Ionic view application with me by running the command
$ ionic share firstname.lastname@example.org
Even though the Ionic View does not replace doing a full install of your application on a device, it is still a great way to test out your application during your development cycle. The ability to easily share it with other people is hands down a big win and time saver. In the next lab, we are going to get back to some coding and I will walk you through how to style an Ionic application.
