If an individual wants to develop an android app, Android Studio is the way to go. It is an integrated development environment (IDE) developed by Google and Jet Brains. It is built on JetBrain’s IntelliJ IDEA software.Android development is the new boon in the software world and thus comes the need for a faster and efficient tool. Android studio provides that than the previous tools like Eclipse Android Development Tools (ADT). The functional code is written in Java language and runs on different platforms like Windows, macOS and Linux.
Studio offers efficient coding environment. One of the best features of the Studio is Instant Run. It allows you to see the effects of the changes in code immediately in the running app without the need to restart the app. It provides an user friendly code editor providing suggestions and different features like refactoring and code analysis. You can install and start your apps real fast with the help of Android Emulator and stimulates various features like GPS location, motion sensors etc. It has a flexible build system with many local and hosted libraries to configure your project. There are tools like GitHub and Subversion which help in syncing your team and provide them update on project and build changes. Apps can be build for all android devices like phones, tablets, Tv etc. Various projects and code templates are included to add patterns like view pager. Sample apps can be imported from GitHub. You can test your Android apps with the help of JUnit 4 and functional UI test frameworks.
Layout Editor based on ConstraintLayout API allows you to build a layout adaptive of different screen sizes. The APK Analyzer inspects your APK contents. You can reduce the overall APK size, preview packaged assets and comparing two APKs. It is very easy to create an image of every size with the help of Vector Asset Studio. You can import SVG or PSD file or select from design icons provided by Google. You can change or add translations or find missing translations with the help of translations editor. You can add services like Authentication, Notifications etc. by connecting your app to Firebase with the help of Firebase Assistant.
There are many things we find really useful. Support for C++ and NDK build scripts without any modifications. The feature to quick fix various issues like performance, security and correctness we find one of the best. And that too with a single click, what else we could want. Coding language is easy to implement and the intelligent code editor made it an enjoyable coding experience for us.
