This page will help you use the PhoneGap Build service to get your mobile applications built remotely.

Requirements

Adobe ID

In order to use the PhoneGap Build service, you need an Adobe ID. If you do not have one already, you can register an account from here.

Platform-specific Requirements

Make sure you have all the requirements for your target platform:

iOS

You cannot build unsigned iOS applications using the PhoneGap Build service, so you must provide a signing key. Read this page to learn how to upload your key to the PhoneGap Build service.

Build Process

Follow the steps below to build your application using the PhoneGap Build service. These steps are a continuation of a deployment process that will start differently depending on the target platform: iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone.

  1. During the deployment process, once you choose to use the PhoneGap Build service, you will be required to enter the email address and password of your Adobe ID to log in. Enter them and click Next.
  2. Once the application gets built, click Save the binaries to download your application’s binaries.
  3. Click Finish to exit the deployment wizard.

Android Release Mode

By default, the PhoneGap Build service builds your mobile application for the Android platform using the debug more. In order to build your application in release mode, follow the steps below:
Note: You must have built your application in debug mode at least once before you can build it in release mode.
  1. Go to your Apps page in PhoneGap Build.
  2. Enter your application’s settings page by clicking its name.
  3. At the bottom, use the combobox in the Android entry to upload a new keystore file to be used for the application, or select an existing keystore file.

In order to get your application built in debug mode again, you must follow the steps above, and select the option no key selected in the Android’s combobox.

BlackBerry Signed Binaries

By default, the PhoneGap Build service builds your mobile application for the BlackBerry platform unsigned. In order to build your application in signed, follow the steps below:
Note: You must have built your application unsigned at least once before you can build it signed.
  1. Go to your Apps page in PhoneGap Build.
  2. Enter your application’s settings page by clicking its name.
  3. At the bottom, use the combobox in the BlackBerry entry to upload a new pair of signing files to be used for the application, or select an existing signature.

In order to get your application built unsigned again, you must follow the steps above, and select the option no key selected in the BlackBerry’s combobox.
