I'm using Eclipse to develop for the Android, and I'm really annoyed at how difficult debugging is compared to Windows Mobile and IPhone. I've listed some problems and I was hoping some developers have better ways to develop using Eclipse that I don't know about.
1. Can I debug when the emulator is already open? Biggest problem I have is that the emulator takes forever to start up and then I have to press "home" to unlock it before I can even start the app. So, can I just start the emulator once, keep it up and running and then keep debugging a new instance of the app whenever I want to?
2. Sometimes, when I hit debug, and the emulator launches, my app doesn't start at all after I unlock the emulator. It says it times out, or no error at all.
3. Is it possible to debug straight to your phone without having to first drag and drop the binary to the sd card and then perform a reinstall.
4. I have the latest Macbook and Eclipse takes about 3-4 seconds to switch tabs from one piece of code to another, why is it so slow?
