I recently finished creating an Android application and now I'm moving into the testing phase. I would like to test it by installing the APK file and running it through an emulator but I'm not sure of the process. How can I install the APK file on the Android emulator?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

With the emulator running, open a cmd session or a terminal (if on Linux) and run:

adb install path/to/your/app.apk

Adb is a program installed as part of the SDK tools.
