Genymotion 2.2.0 (March 31st, 2014)

New features

Genymotion Java API

Developers can now access a Java API that lets them control Genymotion sensors within their application code. This will help you develop unit tests and improve your Android application. It will allow you to keep your source code clean, without complex mocking proxy objects. For more information, refer to the API tab of the Genymotion website.

Only available with Indie and Business licenses.

Virtual device update

We regularly add new features to Genymotion. These new features cannot work on virtual devices created with a previous version of Genymotion. This is why you see an annoying popup when you try to run them from a new Genymotion version. But rejoice! Today is the last day you will have to do it. In this release, we have introduced a wizard that automatically migrates old devices to new ones. So please, for the last time, delete your current virtual devices and create new ones using our new 2.2 Genymotion version. Next time, you will be able to automatically convert them.

Only available with Indie and Business licenses.

Log archive creation

For a faster response from our support team, you can now generate a log archive directly from Genymotion. This log archive contains all the information we need to better identify your problem.
