  • The Best Gear for Android Developers

    Android Authority (Online) featured an article discussing the best equipment for Android developers. It highlights the benefits of having a wider desktop monitor in order to boost productivity and easily work with multiple windows open at the same time.

    The article states, “You’ll swap between windows less and you’ll find it easier to work from resources and quickly look things up on the web. If you’re anywhere near as dense as I am, then switching between windows will mean staring blankly at the screen before remembering what you changed your view for. I use an LG Ultrawide, because it was super cheap and it does the job nicely.”
