    Recently discovered that IE handles development with google maps so since then I have been using it and phone gap to develop an app. For some reason the maps have stopped working when I run it on my tablet. Any ideas what would cause this?

    I have developed one app using GMaps... Not a expert, and it has been awhile since I built the app... From what I remember, you had to get a debug api key to test on the emulator, but that api key would not work on a physical device... You had to go and get another api key for it to work on a physical device... This is most likely standard knowledge, and you most likely already done this... But like I said, I'm not a expert...

    debug works on a device, but you gotta be signed in with the same account.

    get a release key.

    Ok, like I said it has been awhile since I made my GMaps app... Can't remember if the debug api key worked on my device or not... Maybe I had it backwards, and the emulator didn't work unless you had a debug api key... Anyways, tried to help... Sorry that I couldn't!!!

    Sorry I have posted here for a bit. It turns out the problem was caused by a broken build. After fixing that it started working. Unfortunately this issue has returned again. Could it be that a google api doesn't like being activated on two different devices?
