Best IDE ever for Android

Android studio is a great tool for development of android apps. it improves developer productivity. we love the gradle build system and new espresso test recorder which is helping us in improving the Quality of product.

Android Studio

Rapid Android Development-in-a-Box

The IDE platform works well for our needs. Our company decided to use a hyrbid technology to create reusable components and settled on the idea of using React. To work with React is not hard and we can continue to use regular Java IDE's for developing our app. The most popular for developing Android apps would be the Android Studio, so to us using this IDE was a no brainer. It puts everything we need in one place; all of the project configuration options, our gradle scripts, a place to see our terminal messages, our run/debug messages, our sdk manager, the device manager and so on. It's all we needed to move from absolutely having no app to having a deployed app in less than 6 months.

Android Studio

Good documentation, but difficult programming

Somewhat difficult to program

Android Studio

Implementation was simple

The experience was quite seameless. Most apps we transferred to the new platform from Eclipse, had no problems whatsoever. In the case of those that did, support was readily available to solve problems.

Android Studio

Android needs less fragmentation across the different versions of the OS

It took a few years for the android docmentation to mature which made it difficult to design the full architecture. Also the operating system fragmentation became limiting as far as trying to adopt new features provided by the OS

Android Studio

Android Studio repackages IntelliJ with functionality specific for Android development

This is great.

Android Studio

The speed of development was fast but other vendors are coming up with competing products

The IDE is much better than the Eclipse version of Android development tool. The emulator launches very fast and is able to emulate real world scenarios.
