    The below call is failing when deployed on an android device.  This works on an iOS device, in desktop browsers, just not on Android or from chrome browser running on Android. 

    I can't figure out how to make this work.  Any suggestions?

            type: "GET",
            url: _restBaseUrl + "/api/v1/employees",
            dataType: "json",
            headers: {
                'Authorization': "Basic xxxx"
            success: function (d) {
            error: function (d) {
                alert(d.statusText + d.status + d.responseText);

    Hi Jonathan,

    Android debugging is currently not trivial, as the Android port of WebKit doesn't provide a Web Inspector interface for its WebView. What you can do is use add console.log all over the problematic code and check out your device logs in Graphite's output pane or use remote web debugger like Weinre.

    You can also setup Fiddler to intercept your device's traffic and give you a clue what's going on by reviewing the requests/responses.
