  1. We built a really simple and static app, using DMXzone Bootstrap 3, HTML5 Slideshow 2 and DMXzone Google Maps 2. Now switch to DMXzone Cordova Builder (1), select the virtual device to run the app on (2) and run the emulator (3).

  1. It takes a few seconds for the emulator to load. Now you can see how your app looks like.

  1. When you connect an iOS to your computer you can also run the app directly on it. Note that in order to be able to do this you need to have an iOS developer account. When you connect your device it will appear in the connected devices list. But before you do that you need to setup your iPhone or iPad in Xcode, click its icon in the DMXzone Cordova Builder panel.

  1. Your project is automatically loaded in Xcode (1). Now you need to make your iPhone or iPad available as a device. Click window (2) and select devices (3).
