Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an Android virtual device, part of Android App Development: Local Data Storage (2013).
I'll be using the Android emulator to test and debug my applications…throughout this video series.…Here I'll show you the steps I follow to create my emulator.…I'll go to the ADT menu and choose Window > Android Virtual Device Manager.…You can either go to the Device Definitions screen and choose one of the…preexisting definitions or you can create a definition from scratch on the…Android Virtual Devices tab.…I will start from that tab and click New.…
I'll name my new Android virtual device JellyBean.…In this version of ADT, there are four specific device definitions for actual devices:…the Nexus 7, the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus S, and the Nexus One.…Then there are a bunch of predefined device definitions that are generic.…I'm going to start with a fairly small device, which will make everything very…readable on my screen.…It will be the 3.2 QVGA device definition, which uses a medium pixel density.…
I'm setting my target to the only SDK that I have installed: Android 4.2.…Because all of the exercise files for this course are defined for that version…
