I read the Book exercises uses the MAC computer.

I have Win8. Can I:

1) use the Win8
2) audit, then later decide to buy MAC.

Re: MAC
You can use Windows. I have a Mac, so my screenshots are from a Mac. All of the tools can be used on Windows, except you cannot build or simulate for iOS directly from a Windows machine.

I recommend using a Mac if you are building for iOS, largely because it makes it much easier to work with iOS. You can use Windows or Mac for Android.

It is possible to use a build service like Phonegap to build for iOS, but that is not currently covered in the book.

Re: MAC
This is good. As I learn more, decision to learn MAC or PhoneGap will make sense for me.

Thanks..

Re: MAC
You can certainly learn a lot about building mobile apps with Ionic before you learn how to build for iOS. In fact I advise that you learn about Ionic by previewing in your browser until you get a better sense of how it all works, and then you can start to dig into the different platforms of iOS and Android.
