PyAdb Python Library Helps Your PC and Phone Communicate

A few days, we talked about AndroPy, a Python library meant to improve communications between your Android device and your *Nix-based PC. While ADB is easy enough to work with for most, many beginners aren’t quite familiar with this vital debugging tool.

XDA Senior Member zantekk‘s AndroPy was only compatible with Linux systems running x86-64 architecture. However, Recognized Developer cybojenix decided to use this idea to make a library that is also compatible with Windows, and so PyAdb was created.

PyAdb allows you to use the standard ADB commands within the terminal or command prompt. Pushing or pulling files is no longer a hard task. The only missing feature is shell integration, but hopefully it will be added in a coming version. The project is still in a very early development stage. But since it’s an open source tool, other developers can make contributions to help make it bug-free. The only requirements to use this tool are that you have Python vesion 2.7 installed and ADB set up.

If you are looking for a library to communicate with your phone or if you are simply curious how this library works, make your way to the development thread to give it a shot.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
