Use App Viewer to view the front-end prototype of a project on a device and run any action attached to a form, pop-up, or widget such as navigating from one form to other, applying a skin to a widget, and opening a pop-up window. As you make changes to your project and incrementally build and publish those changes using the App Viewer command, you can see those changes reflected in a local preview of the app on the device.
