Crosswalk in ionic view?

Hello everyone
I am very new to ionic framework. I started building an app roughly a month ago, and definitely noticed some lag with android devices.
I installed crosswalk into my app. I checked the browsers available, and I know for a fact that it is there. However, my app still runs very slow whenever I open it in Ionic View.
Is Ionic View not supposed to implement crosswalk? Am I supposed to install my app on an android device via: ionic run android?

Please help!
Thank you!
