Digging deeper into Android

If you have an Android device or are running an Android emulator, you could use a utility provided with the Android SDK itself called the adb. We will discuss adb more in the second chapter. For now, we will just set up the SDK and we are ready to go.

Once the device is connected via a USB, we could simply type in adb devices in our terminal, which will show us the list of serial number of the devices attached. Make sure you have also turned on USB debugging in your device settings.
