Coming from Legacy Ionic View?

Check out the migration guide.

Ionic View

Ionic View makes it easy to distribute versions of your app to beta testers, clients, co-workers, and more, without dealing with the complicated device provisioning and configuration required with traditional beta testing services.

You can install the latest version of Ionic View from the iOS or Android app store:


If you are a developer, you can log in from the settings menu to see the apps from your Ionic Pro dashboard.

Testing Apps

By email invite

If you received an email inviting you to test an app, simply clicking on the link in the email will open View with the app loaded (or direct you to the app store if you haven’t downloaded View yet).

By invitation code

If for some reason the link doesn’t work, you can also enter your invite code that should have been included in the email.

By app ID (public Channels only)

If you know an app’s ID, you can enter its ID to view any Channels the app owner has made public.

Testing apps from your Ionic Pro dashboard

If you are a developer with an Ionic Pro account, you can add the account from the settings tab. Once you have added the account you can view and test any app from your Ionic Pro dashboard.

Submitting Feedback

For apps you were invited to, you can submit feedback by shaking the device while testing the app and selecting “Send Feedback”.

The app owner will be able to view submitted feedback in the Ionic Pro dashboard for that app. See the Beta Testing docs for more details.

Exiting Apps

To exit an app you are testing, just shake the device and select “Exit”. You can also 3-finger swipe down.
