Day 2: Running a test app

This will be a very short post filled with much angst. :P

Long story short, I tried to run one of the Deitel&Deitel test apps in the Eclipse Nexus 4 emulator and failed miserably because it was soooooo slow and refused to load. I’m really surprised to see how terrible the performance of the emulator is compared to the Windows Phone emulators which are as quick as using an actual device. I believe it has something to do with the fact that WP8 runs emulators on virtual machines so the run natively.

Anyway, Day 2 was not much fun. On to Day 3.
