I Made the 2011 uTester of the Year List!

I found out today that I had been selected as the uTest Top Android Tester for 2011.  I think I skipped a heartbeat when I first heard about it and I could not believe my ears.  I am certain that there are much better testers in the uTest community - I have had the privilege to work with them.  Their bug reports inspired me to be a better tester and to keep honing my craft in the mobile space.  Thanks to everyone at uTest, my mentors at the Miagi-Do School of Software Testing, and my family.  I am beyond happy!

Kindle Fire Tips on Error Logging, Debugging and Snapshots

I have been testing on the Kindle Fire since December 2011 and have picked up a few good tricks. These include collecting error logs, taking snapshots, debugging with DDMS and installing applications that are currently not available in the Amazon Appstore such as Dropbox.  I am sure there is lots of information scattered around the web and posted on various forums but I want to share my tips and the following blog links in one location for your use.  I will try to add new ones to this post as I learn them.  Feel free to leave comments with your tips.
