Default Need Help Adding Emulators

All the references I see say I should be able to find a tab that allows me to utilize a Galaxy Tablet emulator. I cannot find this tab. I want to change the phone emulator supplied with the SDK to a Tablet emulator. Every reference I have seen says I should find a selection for doing just that. I am relatively new at SDKs and App Inventor so please be explicit in your answer.

I don't know the way of making a live emulator, but I do know a trick to test it on an tab emulator.

In App Inventor under Package for Phone, choose Package for PC. Your .apk file will be made and your able to download it to your PC.

Then download bluestacks applayer from bluestacks[.]com and setup as tab emulator.
Then run your app from there.

Hope this works for you.

Lightbulb Another way of using different (self created) Emulators...

Hello everybody,

I just started out creating apps and I like the App Inventor software.

I found a way to use self created emulators. Just install Eclipse (I guess you probably have it installed already as app creator - hehe ) Then make sure you have the Android SDk plugin installed and the Android Virtual Machine Manager. I use yoxos to manage my plugins, so I can easily add plugins etc to my Eclipse installation. After that, start up the AVM (Android Virtual Machine Manager) I guess this can all be doen also without Eclipse and only the Android SDK installed. From within the AVM just create the emulator you want. After creating for example an emulator of 7.0 inch and targeted for Android 4.0 you can START the Emulator by clicking start in the emulator list in the AVM at the right side. After starting the emulator click "reset connections" in the Blocks Editor of App Inventor. Then your emulator should show in the list with emulators you are able to connect to. Voila !

The only thing I am struggling with (apart from not being able to use licensing and/or ads in my App INventor apps - at least I don't know how...) is that in the designer view the size stays the same (phone size) and I want to design for tablets. If anyone knows how to change the size in the designer, please let me know.

Best regards,
Johan
