Do you use the developer options on your android device? Like "show overdraw" or "show layout bounds"? Wouldn't it be handy to switch those tools on and off via command line? via devtools you can switch:

  • gfx (profile gpu rendering)
  • layout (show layout bounds)
  • overdraw
  • updates (show screen updates)
  • wifi (enable/disable wifi)
  • data (enable/disable mobile data)

on and off via command line. Works on emulators and devices. And, yes: it will control multiple devices at once.
