Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Testing and Debugging Running the App on a Device

Does anyone know how to transfer an app from Android Studio to an HP Touchpad running Android 4.3.1?

My HP Touchpad came with WebOS and I CyanogenMod 10 to have it run Android apps. When I go into "settings", it says that USB debugging is allowed but my device still doesn't show up under Devices.

Do you just want the app on your device, or do you specifically need it connected for debugging?

If you simply need the app on your device try emailing the apk file to yourself and downloading it on the HP touchpad.

Edit: Also, you've likely already done this since it's been a couple hours. But after turning on USB debugging mode try unplugging your device and plugging it back in. Also give restarting the device a try. If I remember right I had an issue like that when I first turned on USB debugging mode.

I got sidetracked for a while but am having difficulty building the apk file. I am not sure how to do this. I am a real novice at this. Thanks for your help!
