Developer Mode - JSONP mode
A mobile app, based on PhoneGap and Slim Apps, is a native client accessing your site. As a consequence, it is not limited by Cross-origin restrictions.
On the other hand, your development browser is restricted as usual. Then, a solution for cross-development is desired. Slim Apps supports JSONP protocol to ease the development in a desktop setup and support all possible use cases. More about CORS: Joomla and Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS).
This setting allows to enable JSONP mode for development.
