I'm quite new to Android and have been using an AVD to debug my app so far. However, I want to start checking the media options and therfore need to start using my Android phone. How do I get Eclipse to load my app to my phone instead of my AVD?
First you need to enable USB debugging on your phone, then connect it to your computer via USB. Then eclipse should automatically start debugging on your phone instead of the AVD.
just for additional info, If your apps is automatically run on emulator, right click on the project, Run As -> Run Configuration, then on the Run Configuration choose on the Manual. after that, if you run your apps you will be prompted to chose where you want to run your apps, there will be listed all the available device and emulator.
