Introducing Emulator

The emulator enables you to test and debug applications in an environment practically identical to that of the device, without having to own a device and connect it to the development host.

In addition, you can use the emulator controls to change the information that the device has about its configuration and environment. This allows you to see how applications look and function in different situations. For example, you can view the application layout in both landscape and portrait orientation. Or you can check how your application behaves when device battery power decreases to low or critical level.

The following Qt modules and classes are supported:

In addition, you can use the emulator to test touch gestures, such as tap, pinch, pan, and swipe.

If memory that is allocated in applications is not freed, a memory leak occurs. To catch memory leaks, use dynamic analysis tools, such as Valgrind tools on applications running on devices.
