Part 2: Running Monaca Debugger with Monaca Cloud IDE

Monaca Debugger is a powerful application for testing and debugging your Monaca applications on real devices in real time.

When developing Monaca apps in Monaca Cloud IDE, assuming that the Internet connection is available, all changes made to your project files will be pushed into your Monaca Debugger in real-time as soon as you save those changes.
