I signed up. Conceptualized. Researched. Gave up when realized AVD emulator didn't support Bluetooth :(

For me the AVD emulator just drags...... it is very difficult to guess how the application will perform on an actual device... Is this happening for everyone??

it used to happen in my old laptop. But i bought a new laptop(details down) and it starts only in 1 min and works 95% like a real device.

AVDs lags even on i7 sometimes. There are a few tricks you can use to speed it up.
  • Use option - 'partition-size 512' in your run configurations. It will make sure that your AVD device's internal memory is 512 MB, replace 512 with your number of choice. It speeds up you app installation to emulators also.
  • Use lower resolutions whenever you can. It will also speed up AVD. Also if you don't need to use the latest API emulators i.e. 4.0 or 2.3.3, stick to 2.2 emulators. they perform better. :wink:

Yes, thought would incremental update it (was wrong lol). Didn't have a device to test on anyway.

Guilt trip (and a straight 14 hour long geek overdrive) made me do it. Isn't the submit deadline like on April 2?

Ya sure just as they verify/certify/test/yada-yada it. Says takes ~10 days to verify. There goes my incremental updates.

Google Play is great in that case. Instantly live. :D

Samsung, Amazon and Apple seems to take the review process seriously. :)
But that's also a good thing. Both things has their benefits.

Another app submitted - in verification.

Big (like really big) thanks to ico for providing the much needed bluetooth dongles in the hour of need.
