Camera API Formula: To emulate or not to emulate


#1

Thanks to Ionic team for an awesome framework!

I’ve read through the Cordova Camera API formula and pulled down the code and ran it.
I’ve read that you can’t test the camera on the iPhone emulator but only on an iPhone device.
This is what I get when emulating the camera code:

2014-05-18 12:51:36.268 CameraTest[5080:90b] Camera.getPicture: source type 1 not available.

So is the code on the Camera API formula supposed to work in the emulator?
This wasn’t said in the post and now I gotta learn how to test this app on a device.

If that is the case, I’ll proceed that way. Just want to make sure this is the case for my development workflow.

Thanks!
