Note 1: At 4:05 in the video, we had some new people come in so you can skip from there until 4:30. At 25:00 I try to build it on my phone, but I dont follow up on it.
Note 2: You can connect your android device via USB to your computer, and enable developer mode and you ll be able to build the app on it after selecting it on the list
Note 3: You can connect your iOS device via USB to your computer, and select the device from the list, if that doesnt work or you get errors, message me or google it.
