3. Test the App

This is the fun part! You can test drive your native iOS and Android app on a simulator or on your own device before signing up and publishing it.

To test the app online from your browser, click on the Design tab and click on the See Live Preview button at the bottom-right of the screen.

To get a preview of your app on your device, follow the steps below:

  1. Download the MobiLoud app from the App Store or the Android app from Google Play on your own device.
  2. Open the app and once it’s loaded, you’ll be asked to enter your site’s URL. If the popup doesn’t appear or to bring it back to change the URL, just shake your device.
  3. Enter your own site’s address and test your own app on your device.

4. Sign up & Publish
