Will there be support for Hybrid Apps using a webview (like cordova/phonegap) as ui using Appium?

I can only find support for actual hybrid app testing using the legacy methids. But they require devices connected localy. No cloud device farm options as far as I could find. But using a device farm is one of my main requirements. 

Will there be support for hybrid apps using appium in the short future?

Are there any known workarounds to testing a hybrid app using appium that allows to record the tests instead of pure scripting? (else I'd rather use webdriverio + jasmine or sortalike).

    Hi robcvdv and AlexKaras !

    I spoke with the team and can say that this task has a really high priority for the devs at the moment. I can't name any time frames but looks like they are almost done investigating and will launch the development process soon.

    Sonya, I think this is a good question that a lot of Community members might be interested in. Thank you.

        Thanks, that would be great. Please keep us updated if this is going to be released as a beta or even alpha that is available.
