I used to build my app with Intel XDK, and successfully test it on mobile. However, after their build system was retired, and because of the enormous APK size I had to switch to PhoneGap.
After I sucessfully built my app, I have downloaded a debug apk to my phone and installed it. However, I am facing some problems that were not a case for Intel XDK.
1. The window of the project is a little downscaled and there are is a black area on the right and on the left, while on the bottom, there is something like a bar that you could barely see, and I think that's what causes the window to change size.
Note that I haven't changed the size of the window, and when I used to build the app with Intel XDK the window would fit the whole screen.
2. The project lags more than before and the screen flashes occasionally. This was a case when I would test my app without installing it (using Intel App Preview), but not when I actually installed it.
3. The project does not load and save data to local storage, and I don't know why.
4. Sounds start playing only after I touch the screen. I know this is a case for iOS, but I am building my app for Android...
Will these problems disappear once I install the regular apk that requires your Google Play key and all that stuff? I still don't have a Google Developer Account so I can't test that out. Maybe somebody more experienced on this subject could help me?
