Previewing and testing problems

I'm able to preview my experiment pages in the App Studio portal, but I can't see how to switch between different layout types. I started off viewing the iPad layouts (horizontal and vertical), then added content to an iPhone layout, uploaded that, and went to view it. I was able to preview that, but I can't see how I am supposed to select WHICH layout to test! I can't get back to the iPad pages.
Additionally, I can't test my content in the App Studio app on my iPad. I have clicked the 'Test' button in the App Studio web portal, and I've logged into the same account in the iPad app. I see the title of my content when I tap the Change Publication button, and I've made sure I try the one marked "(Test)". But nothing shows up. Teething problems? Something I need to do at my end? :-(

Hooray! Not sure what I've done that's different, but the Test process works. It works really well!
I'm still wondering how I should switch to other layouts...

Hi Keith,
with other layouts you mean other devices? Or other orientation? If the latter, there's a popup where you can switch orientation once you are previewing in the portal.
If oyu mean other devices, as far as I know our Trial accoutn currently only offers iOS not Kindle Fire or Android yet, it will come soon.

Regards
Matthias

Switching orientations is fine. But now that we can develop for ALL iOS platforms, how do we choose which device layouts iPad, iPhone, iPhone 5 we preview or test? I have some projects that I've made with iPad Vertical, iPad Horizontal, and iPhone layouts. Normally I just see the iPad page layouts when I look at things in the App Studio portal or test them on my iPad. But sometimes I just see the iPhone layouts... which is clearly wrong when I'm using my iPad to check things out!
I have an iPad and an iPhone. When I test layouts in the App Studio app on my devices, how do I make sure that I test the iPhone layouts on my iPhone and the iPad layouts on my iPad?
