Android app

I wrote a simple app for a local animal rescue named New Beginnings Animal Rescue located in East Brunswick, NJ.

Download the app from the Google Play Store here or search for NBARNJ in the Google Play Store.

The app has the rescue's hours of operation and contact information, a link to its Amazon Wishlist, a link to donate by Paypal, and a link to its Petfinder page of adoptable dogs and cats.

ADB driver for Nobis tablet

In 2014 I purchased the Nobis NB7022S 7" quad-core tablet from Staples for less than $50. Unfortunately, when I plugged it into a PC running Windows 7 Pro, it wasn't fully recognized. I wanted to use it for Android app development, but for that to be possible, I needed ADB driver for the tablet.

By accident, I found a blog which provided the details to get a working ADB driver. As of the writing of this webpage, Wednesday, October 14, 2015, all the PNG files on that webpage are unavailable. Fortunately, the instructions are very good, so the screenshots were not necessary for me.

Note #1 == Part 1 of the webpage mentions adding directories to $PATH. You don't need to, if you read Notes #2 and #3 below.

Note #2 == Part 2 of the webpage mentions editing android_winusb.inf file. For me, this file was located in C:\Android\sdk\extras\google\usb_driver directory since my Android SDK is installed in C:\Android\sdk.

Note #3 == Part 2 of the webpage in the Windows section mentions executing android adb update. You would instead execute C:\Android\sdk\tools\android update adb. My Android SDK is installed in C:\Android\sdk.

Note #4 == Part 2 of the webpage in the Windows section mentions executing adb kill-server. You would instead execute C:\Android\sdk\platform-tools\adb kill-server. My Android SDK is installed in C:\Android\sdk.

Note #5 == Part 2 of the webpage in the Windows section mentions that the folder '.android' is created in your home directory. This full path of this folder is C:\Users\[your_account_name]\.android on a PC running Windows 7. For example if your login is JohnDoe, the directory would be C:\Users\JohnDoe\.android
