How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy Guide to have June 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
There are times I am working in the garden and I have a question about something. In the past, I would either spend time trying to find my answer using various search engines, or wait until I come in the house and spend time looking on line. With this app, I can open it on my tablet while in the garden, and find what I am looking for! It has good information about planting, growing, harvesting, and even about possible problems with various fruits and veggies I grow. The information is comprehensive for a "little" app and has been a helpful tool to have.
