Who needs this?

Every beginner in programming, will come to a point when he’ll need to be able to open the the XAMPP localhost in Android for testing purposes.

If you’d start developing Android device applications, then for sure, at some point you’ll face the need to be able to connect to the XAMPP localhost installed on your computer from your Android device.
