Announcement from kenmark: Appetizer toolkit enables touchscreen event recording and replaying
[code single]appetizer-toolkit[/code] is the core of Appetizer, which provides the ability to:
* record touchscreen events from one device and replay to many (aspect ratios must be the same)
* control multiple devices concurrently (e.g., run a shell command, install an app, etc.)
* mirror the touchscreen events from one device to many in real time (aspect ratios must be the same)

[code single]appetizer-toolkit[/code] is a command line tool, available on Windows 7+, MacOS Mavericks+ and Linux. It also comes with SDK for Python and Nodejs. [code single]appetizer-toolkit[/code] requires [code single]adb[/code] to be present in [code single]PATH[/code].

Please submit an issue for bugs, enhancements and feature requests. Pull requests are welcomed too.
