How to Install APK Files on Android Device Emulator

In this tutorial you are to run any APK (Android application) file to your Android emulator. Assuming you already have the Emulator running  (if not sure how run the Android device emulator, refer to this http://blog.kerul.net/2011/09/android-emulator-to-run-your-apps.html) .

Locate your adb.exe file in your Android SDK folder. In Windows environment normally your adb.exe is inside [Android-SDK-folder]/platform-tools/ . In my case, the adb.exe is in C:\android-juno\android-sdk\platform-tools (this is an example path to the adb.exe, may varies depending on your system). Find any APK file (for the purpose of this tutorial, I’ve prepare an APK file – download here http://bit.ly/peribahasa-apk ). After you’ve successfully downloaded the APK, put it inside your [Android-SDK-folder]/platform-tools/ as in Figure 2.

Now run the adb.exe through the command prompt, go to Start, and find cmd.

In the command line, go inside the platform-tools folder, as in the Figure 4. Execute command;

adb install Peribahasa.apk

C:\Users\kerul>cd\

C:\>cd android-juno

C:\android-juno>cd android-sdk

C:\android-juno\android-sdk>cd platform-tools

C:\android-juno\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb install Peribahasa.apk

ViewFlipper Example–a simple FlashCard

UPDATE: Improved with Fling gesture (Sept 2012) UPDATE: ViewFlipper with Flip-In and Flip-Out Animation (August 2012) This tutorial is to demonstrate the ViewFlipper layout that is almost similar to CardLayout (in Java). The app will produce a simple Flash card that provide several screens with different picture for each card. Flip-in and Flip-out animation provided. Added in Sept 2012 – an improvement to support Fling gesture – enjoy… The amendment is only on the coding part. Some how the layout design (main.xml) is quite long. Later I’ll produce separated screen by including several XML layout from outside files. Screenshots;
