Luckily, that can be fixed! In this article, we show you how to access your development server from a mobile device.

If you are making a mobile game with Phaser then you'll have to develop on a desktop computer: Mac or Windows.

You'll also have to use a development server to see your work-in-progress at an address like http://localhost:8080.

But you can only access localhost from the computer running the server.

Having to build and install your game every time before testing on a mobile device is a huge pain in the neck.

The good news is that you should be able to reach your local development server from a mobile device already!

In this article, we will show you how to do that on Mac and Windows as well as provide some troubleshooting suggestions."
