Rainforest's Android VM emulators are available for you to test your application. These VMs mirror the screen resolution and OS version of real devices. The testing interface allows you to interact with the majority of the functionality of a real Android device.

Common functionality available via the action bar inside the VMs:

  • Power Button (Ctrl+P)
  • Volume Up (Ctrl+=)
  • Volume Down (Ctrl+-)
  • Rotate Left (Ctrl+Left)
  • Rotate Right (Ctrl+Right)
  • Camera (Ctrl+S)
  • Zoom (Ctrl+Z)
  • Back (Ctrl+Backspace)
  • Home (Ctrl+H)

  • More

Note: if you accidentally minimize or close the action bar, click Alt+Tab to bring it back.
