@wayne_parrott - I'm the @GapDebug project mgr and developer on the team.

Q1 To get us started, mind telling us a little about @GapDebug and what it brings to #Android and #iOS app development?

A1 @GapDebug is a free #crossplatform debugger for #cordova #iOS and #Android applications. Recent updates incl app mgmt supt.

A1 brief history of @GapDebug (rel 1.0, oct ‘14), updated approx every 6-8 weeks, free contrib to community

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?

A2. @GapDebug is simple turn-key debugging but incl's automation for quick debugging + app install & launch #debug #ios

 

Q3 What’s new with @GapDebug since our last #genuitecchat?

A3 The @GapDebug dev team continues to research and expand the mobile device mgmt services. #appmgmt

Q6 Can @GapDebug debug #Cordova plugins?

A6 Yes, but let me qualify that @GapDebug is limited to debugging the JS interface of a #cordova plugin

A6 I’ll add that I rec used @GapDebug in concert with #XCode for dev & debugging an #iOS plugin

A6. The @GapDebug #instant-debug feature makes it so much better than using #Safari #webkit inspector

 

Q7 Will @GapDebug work with the upcoming #iOS9 & #OSX #ElCapitan?

A7 We plan to start early testing after the next @GapDebug update. Will post updates as soon as we know more. #osx #elcapitan

A8 The next @GapDebug update is planned for early next week. Finishing up some cool new features. #debugging

 

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.

 

Excellent! That covers the questions sent in advance! So let's end with an open question: #genuitecchat
