TestDrive doens't work on Phonegap/Android


I downloaded Kinvey's TestDrive and made the required modifications like Appkey Appsecret. But on my android emulator when I click the "Ping Kinvey" button, nothing happens.. No alert, No error whatsoever. Wondering what I am missing.....



Ping Kinvey



* Common app functionality will be attached to the `app` namespace.


var app = {


* Application constructor.


initialize: function() {




* Bind event listeners.


bindEvents: function() {

// Bind any events that are required on startup. Common events are: `load`,

// `deviceready`, `offline`, and `online`.

document.addEventListener('deviceready', this.onDeviceReady, false);



* The deviceready event handler.


onDeviceReady: function() {

// Initialize Kinvey. Paste your app key and secret below.

var promise = Kinvey.init({

appKey : 'xxxxxxxxxxx',

appSecret : 'yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy'


promise.then(function(activeUser) {

// The `Kinvey.init` function returns a promise which resolves to the

// active user data (or `null` if there is no active user).

// Your app is now connected to Kinvey.

promise.then(function(response) {

alert('Kinvey Ping Failed. Response: ' + error.description);


}, false);



Attaching files...
Files are here... Please take a look at these files and let me know ...
Now I got this working on a different box on a different OS. So, I believe my issue is to do with the Env than the code.

Thanks to everyone who read my comments here :smile:
