What’s that you say? You’ve never used the Android emulator before? That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care – by making the emulator (the thing on a developers computer that simulates running an app) fast, it means that developers don’t have to output an .apk to their phone or tablet every time they want to try it out. That should mean more rapid testing and more iterations during development, which leads to better apps all around.
If you’re a developer head on over to the source link to learn about the newly improved emulator; for regular Android users rest a little easier tonight, knowing that Google continues to try and improve the tools that ultimately lead to better mobile experiences.
