Ionic View Testing My App


#1

Hi guys. I have the following question. I think I know the answer but I want to be sure.

Is testing my Ionic2 app in Ionic View in different devices recommended? I mean, does Ionic View run the apps just as the apps would run if they are build and deployed to iOS, Android and Windows Phone?

I know that testing with ionic --serve is not recommended but I would like to know if Ionic View fills this gap so that I can test my app in a lot of devices before passing the app to production.

In my opinion it is good for easy tests and sharing your app with others.

The View App only provides a fixed number of cordova plugins. So if you are something special - it will not work.
But only for testing the layout basic functionality of your app it should be enough.

But keep in mind it is more like a “Show & Share” App.
