    I followed description of 'LiveSync with Ion' ( http://icenium.com/resources/documentation/livesync-with-ion ). But couldn't start test application through 'Icenium Ion App' on iOS. When I try long tap with 3 fingers, nothing happens. I use Windows 7.

    Hi Constantin,

    Thanks for trying Icenium.

    When using Ion you first have to download your app into Ion. You can do this via Mist by scanning the QR code. Please look at the instructions at the link below on how to do that. The 3 finger long tap is to sync changes that were made after you downloaded the app into Ion.

    Thank you very much. I just connected iPod Touch (with Icenium Ion installed on it) to Windows PC and it has recognized device. For some seconds I alredy had my application on device. Everything works very fast - you save file in editor and application resatrting on a device. Nothing can be more usefull and more fast for development, especially for development on Windows for iOS.

    I can't make LiveSync with Ion work for me. I'm running Graphite on a Windows 8 PC.

    I select Run/Build/Icenium Ion. Then I capture the URL from the QCode using a QC reader app on my iPad. Then I start the Ion app (how does the Ion app get the URL captured by the QC reader app?).

    When the Ion app starts I see the Icenium Hello World demo program running (how did that get loaded?). When I try the three finger touch and hold, I get an error dialog box saying:"Unable to start HTTP connection". Would this be a problem with the Microsoft firewall? If so, what's the fix?

    Hello Bruce,

    It is pretty much straight-forward - in order for ION to be able to load the app from the QR code, you need to have internet connectivity enabled and access to app.icenium.com where the .ipa file is stored. If you don't comply with any of these requirements, you would not be able to use the QR code and you can use Graphite to deploy your app to your iOS device instead.

    Thanks for replying Steve. Yes all my computers and mobile devices are online and connected. I have used Graphite and deployed to my iPad, but I want to use the Ion app also.

    I do a build and get the QC code on my notebook screen. Then I use a QC reader app on my iPad to scan the code and I see that the app has read the URL (what does it do with it besides displaying it?). But so far I have not activated the Ion  app. So now I move to the Ion app and start that. How does it access the URL that the QC app scanned. There is nothing for me to do on the Ion app except the 3 finger touch, which results in the HTTP error message. So it seems that I am missing something relating to using the QC code. Is the Ion app supposed to scan that itself? If so, how?

    Hello Bruce,

    If you already have installed Graphite and loaded your project in it and want to use ION to test your app, you do not need to build and scan Barcode. You simply need to connect your iPad to your computer and wait for Graphite to show it as connected. Then when you start Icenium ION on your iPad, it would automatically load your project.

    Still to clear any confusion, I would explain about the Barcode purpose as well (mainly used with Mist to build your app) - once you read the QR code and it is recognized as URL, you need to click on that URL, so that your device downloads the project from our servers and loads it in ION. The Hello World demo is installed along with Icenium ION by default. For more information, refer to our documentation:

    Thanks for that detailed explanation. Now I am able to use ION both ways, by scanning the QC and by connection to the USB port. The missing step for me was clicking the URL in the QC reader. I've never used one before, so didn't know what to do with it, and I didn't see that step in any of the docs I read. Thanks again.
