We recommend using a Clover Developer Kit to fully test your user experience. This will also allow you to access hardware-specific functionality like NFC, other secure payments, printing, and scanning. However, if you are not relying on those functionalities, it is also possible to use an emulator to quickly prototype, develop, and test your Clover applications.
