We're gearing up for the Windows Phone release. Before publishing the app, we'd appreciate some eyeballs on our release candidate. Anyone and everyone are welcome to test the app!

Setup Test App Bundle

Install the Test App bundle, which has everything you need including the PhoneGap CLI:

$ git clone
$ cd phonegap-app-testable/
$ npm install
$ npm start

Install PhoneGap Developer App

Install the PhoneGap Developer app for Windows Phone:

Download phonegap-1.0.0-rc.1.xap

Test Case

  1. Open the mobile app
  2. Enter the IP address reported by $ npm start
  3. Device should display device ready and vibrate
  4. Press the back button to navigate back home
  5. Verify IP address was saved to input field
  6. Connect to the server again
  7. Four-finger tap to refresh app
  8. Edit www/index.html and wait for app to refresh
  9. Three-finger tap to navigate back home

Additional Testing

Feel free to do any additional testing, such as specific plugin functionality. We have smoke tested each plugin by testing a single entry-point, but you may uncover new issues.

Any known issues on other platforms will also be existing issues on the WP8. These will be patched across all platforms after the WP8 release.

Yay thanks @purplecabbage! I've added your devices to the original list.

I'm happy to see 8.1 runs out-of-the-box!


Tested on: HTC 8S (8.0), a rather old and cheap phone, but..

Looking great and working perfectly. All tests passed.

Good job!

Ya, awesome to hear that 8.1 runs. One question though, does the app's main page still have the bar at the bottom like described in this issue: #92

Yay, thanks @EddyVerbruggen and @timkim!
