How do I use a physical device with Xamarin Test Recorder?

CieDigitalCieDigital USUniversity

I have been able to successfully use Xamarin Test Recorder to generate test scripts using the iOS and Android simulators, however, when I try to use a physical device, The "Select App" dropdown doesn't show any apps that have been installed on the device. I have tried installing the app in debug mode and release mode with no luck.

After I selected the device, I also tried specifying the IPA that is built out in the bin folder as the app to launch. Looking at the logs in the Test Recorder, this seemed to work fine, as it reinstalled the app to the device, however, when it attempts to launch the app I get a "instruments failed to start the app" message.

Any help is appreciated!
