Two Android Tips

Two random Android related tips:

1) If you’re developing apps on less than common Android phones via Andriod Studio, like the One Plus One (my device), then using the ADB network bridge will save you having to figure out which set of drivers you’d need to actually be able to connect to the phone via USB. It is cautioned against if you’re on an untrusted network, and at least the One Plus One has you confirm that you want to create a debugging connection, but it does seem a bit handy.

2) If you’re using a Microsoft Bluetooth 5000 or 6000 keyboard and can’t quite figure out how to get it to pair, try long-pressing on the Bluetooth/Pair button. I was trying to use my Bluetooth keyboard after a long hiatus of not using it, and stumbling across this review helped me figure that out, when manuals and the like were not very easy to find.
