Console says 'app is not defined' and I can't follow along with debugging.

After finally getting the debugger to open on windows (it helps if you have a debugger; statement in app.js), my console says :

Uncaught ReferenceError: app is not defined at <anonymous>:1:1 no matter where I put the breakpoint in app.js

How do I fix this to follow along with debugging?

Actual errors are always displayed in the debugger.

You don't need a breakpoint for them.

If you'd like help diagnosing your issue, post your code here. Or better yet, make a snapshot of your workspace and post that.
