Simple guide line to run Android apps on Google’s Nexus Q.
Procedure to install apps on your Nexus Q
Since Nexus Q comes out with a very strong android background it would be very helpful for a lot of fans to know how to install android apps on their Nexus Q once they put their hands on it. Luckily various developers have put details on various forums as how to properly install Android apps on Nexus Q.
One he the draw backs is that the process is somewhat complex, as least compared to other Android devices. For example, USB debugging must first be enabled to connect the device to your PC computer, which also requires a running version of the Android SDK. Only then can you type an install command on the computer to install an app on your Nexus Q.
Additional requirements for Nexus Q
Still now working? Well there is another catch to this. Once you have installed Android app, you must open the Android debug bridge shell to launch the app and the manually enter the commands to interact with the app by emulating tap or drag actions. Ideally this hack is far from what most would consider usable at this point. So here’s to hoping the device manages to easily run apps like Netflix on the Nexus Q.
