AppLaud App

February 8, 2012 Version 1.4 : Work in Progress

  • Updating App: PhoneGap 1.4.1, jQuery Mobile 1.0.1, Resolving Issues
  • Use at your own risk
  • Android Market App is Version 1.3 (latest)

The AppLaud App version 1.3 is an Android App that works with AppLaud Cloud to create a fast Android development environment.

The AppLaud App has two main functionalities - each represented by a navigation page.

  • The My Apps Page works in conjunction with the AppLaud Cloud to run and debug a developers project. It can run pure JavaScript Android PhoneGap apps directly from the cloud. No download or install is necessary. The Download APKs feature enables downloading and running any built Android app in the developer's workspace on the device.
  • The Demo Page will run or download several different apps that illustrate PhoneGap and jQuery Mobile's capabilities.
