View Full Version : Emulate devices

07-01-2011, 05:15 AM
Hello everyone,

I am developing my new app https://market.android.com/details?id=com.molevi.wtime and want to test it in as much as possible devices.

I am working with eclipse IDE, and there is Graphical Layout option within lauout.xml files to preview the screen.
How can i manage the Graphical Layout option to fit a specific screen and how to get information (dimension, aspect ratio, density etc.) about specific device eg. Samsung Galaxy S2?

Configure Android Emulator is my second choice.

Thanks for helping.

Your best bet is to follow the guidelines here:
Supporting Multiple Screens | Android Developers (http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/screens_support.html)

And not to get locked into an specific screen.

You can also setup and run many emulated devices.

There is a ton of info here:
Managing Virtual Devices | Android Developers (http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/devices/index.html)

I personally develop on a phone though because I like to get the feel of my app in a real situation.

Hope that helps.
