A1 We introd’ @GapDebug 1.0 at #PhoneGap Days in San Fran last fall & have had good developer acceptance.

Q2 Why use @GapDebug vs other debugging tools that are out there for #PhoneGap or #Cordova?

Q9 What cool features specifically do you have in the works for @GapDebug?

A9 look for new device snapshot, syslog view, restart & #iOS & #Android app launching

A9 Automatic app launch-after-install + #instant-debugging is way cool. Gets immediately into #debugging context.
