Do you develop everything on your phone?

Post by benbrown » 27 Apr 2017 19:23

I find that it's rather tedious to use the small screen of my phone. I'd love to have a bigger screen and a permanent mouse&keyboard as well, but I don't see a way to create flows on my computer (Windows/Linux).

--> How are you all creating your flows? How do you maintain them? Bug tracking? Versioning?

It seems very difficult to do that on a phone, but I am hopefully missing something rather obvious.
Have a laugh, and explain how I can work smarter. Thanks!

If you have a Samsung phone, then you can use SideSync to mirror your phone's screen on your PC and use your PC keyboard and mouse. There may be something similar for other brands.

Yes I do have a Samsung. Cool, I didn't know SideSync, neat!

Doesn't exist for Linux though - but you helped me get another idea: I used an USB OTG cable to plug in a Logitech receiver dongle, and I now have a regular mouse keyboard attached to my Samsung S6 :-D Haha, I love it!

For others, if using Chrome, http://vysor.io works well (free/ads or subscription)

AirDroid allows you to display your phone's screen on your PC monitor, and you can control your phone with your PC keyboard & mouse. They have desktop apps for Windows / Mac and (if you don't want to install their desktop app, or if you're on Linux for which they don't have a desktop app) they have a browser-based interface too.
