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.

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.
