"The best IDE for Android developement"

What do you like best?

I have been using this IDE for Android development since long. And the best thing I like about it, is it's debugging tool which was helpful to me a lot while development. Apart from it, it has a very good support for Kotlin language by which I am able to do Android development in Kotlin language as well. It has a wide array of plugins which helped you in developing the application better way. Moreover, it has very good support of Git which helped me to execute Git commands easily. It has very good conflict resolution tool which I could not find in any other software till date.

What do you dislike?

It takes a lot of resources to run this IDE. Because of that, sometimes it gets hangs and due to that you need to restart it again. Apart from it, there is nothing much which I don't like about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are Android developer then this is the best and open source IDE available in the market right now to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this IDE for Android development. It helped me a lot in developing the application faster and better way. It's memory profiling tool is very good which helped me to identify the memory leaks in my application.

" Useful tool"

What do you like best?

the compilation is fast and lately has been improved, the applications that are developed can be executed directly on the mobile device. Changes at the design level every time one makes an interface change are immediately reflected.

It is integrated with Google Cloud Platform, for access to different services.

allows you to import projects that are developed in the eclipse environment

What do you dislike?

Compatibility problem when you want to load projects prior to version 3.3. Projects based on Kotlin seem to keep charging worse, they never finish loading. And despite updating the SDK and Gradle, the old Android Studio projects simply could not be used.

Sometimes problems arise with emulators that do not want to lift.

Recommendations to others considering the product

That memory consumption is improved when emulating the application in the PC, since it requires many resources to run the emulator and this makes it difficult to develop in any equipment

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Today I am developing mobile applications since the business area is implementing a new native app, to show the services that are offered, and new requirements have come out which we have to create login, access to different services of the device, offer functionalities owned by the same company and present an actrative product to our client.

What do you like best?

Today Everyone having smartphone and total world is convert to smart world using android application total world is so small in your hand .And that application created by boss of IDE Android Studio .Using this we prepare many more things create many application.I like its themes and writing style code and colorful code distinguish many more code and debugging speed is very good.

What do you dislike?

The worst thing about AS is the ram usage. If using i3 or i5 processor and 4GB RAM then you have to forget multi tasking. Also gradle processing takes too much time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Avoid reinventing the wheel by following these guidelines. Lessons learned from Android developers in Futuristic. If you are interested in iOS or Windows Phone development, be sure to check also our iOS Good Practices and Windows App Development Best Practices documents.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I develop android applications for my own enterprise. Applications like day to day selling, Stock Management, to some extent books keeping, internal message application where one can share the company updates and sales. I also used to develop android application in my college like restaurant order management system and many more. You can build easy static applications to major application in this IDE easily.

"Android studio : a complete and one of the best tool to develop a Android application"

What do you like best?

Android studio is officially recommended by Google itself, so it has very vast community support. Also, It is has in numerous little features as an code editor; which are helpful a lot develop and debug my programs faster. Moreover, There is a search functionality from whole project(by pressing shift key twice), which I believe is a great time saver. Android studio has also in built emulator support and third party plugins integration with it is also an easy part.

What do you dislike?

Due to very much number of functionality it has, it consumes a lot of RAM and what i hate in this is when i open emulator, it freezes for some time because all the tasks are running simultaneously at that time. Also, Installation process and understating the setup of "gradle" is a bit difficult for even intermediate Android Developer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to develop applications for android platform, then I must put the force upon use of android studio, as it is a official IDE use by Google developers as well as cost is free and you will get all the functionalities in one package you need to develop an Android application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Android studio as my one and only android application development tools. I use it for writing my apps as well as debug the flow of application execution of these applications.

"One of the Best IDE for Android Development "

What do you like best?

I am developing android application for past couple of years and the best thing I liked about this is its too much User Friendly. For a naive developer like me also it was very easy to access and use it initially.

What do you dislike?

The worst thing about AS is the ram usage. If using i3 or i5 processor and 4GB RAM then you have to forget multi tasking. Also gradle processing takes too much time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are very old Android Developer then you must have gone through the difficulty of developing applications in Eclipse (Java IDE). Now when you moved to android studio you know it is very big leap and it many features that were very difficult for normal developers to do in old IDE at that time. So I would say to new developers who have just started developing that you will never have better than this IDE for android Development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I develop android applications for my own enterprise. Applications like day to day selling, Stock Management, to some extent books keeping, internal message application where one can share the company updates and sales. I also used to develop android application in my college like restaurant order management system and many more. You can build easy static applications to major application in this IDE easily.

"Adequate IDE for developing Android applications using Java"

What do you like best?

The integration of Subversion and other tools is very useful and easy to use once I get passed the complication of learning to use it. Being able to have version control in the IDE saves me valuable time.

What do you dislike?

The entire layout is confusing at first and not as well organized or intuitive as a more refined IDE like Xcode or visual studio. The gradle build system is an absolute mess and the number one issue with using Android studio to develop. Another issue is poor management of versioning the product and making projects work on multiple different minor versions within the same major version of Android Studio. I have had as many as 3 versions of this product on my machine at once due to not being able to open projects from older versions after minor updates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Research the gradle build system because it is the single worst thing about this product and extremely confusing. If you do not learn the basics of how it works before trying to use Android studio then you will have a very hard time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At my company we have used visual studio to allow multiple developers to work on an android application in parallel and/or in series. It has been a good native environment for developing Android applications and testing using the emulator. Using Android studio for QA we were able to reduce the number of testing devices needed significantly.

"Application Development With Android Studio"

What do you like best?

I like programming android applications and working with software that will give me all the necessary features in the application development, software that is easy to use, user-friendly. A Software that uses multiple languages during programming.

What do you dislike?

Working with a software that takes a lot of time to start, occupies a lot of hard disk space, software that is complex and uses too much of my RAM.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is the best software to use in android app development with ease, user-friendly and GUI capability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Has enabled the development of Android applications that can run on more phone choices, it enables better design and distribution. Android Studio is an open source hence cost effective, it has an open platform for better workspace which helps make a friendly environment of app development. Its more customized and can change almost everything. it allows instant run such that intelligently understands the changes made in an application without actually restarting your app.

Gran cantidad de móviles para emular, de muchas marcas diferentes y con todas las versiones de Android hasta la versión 8

Cuenta con numerosos atajos de teclado y autocompletado de código que hace que la programación sea mucho más rápida.

What do you dislike?

En alguna ocasión si se ejecuta el proyecto desde una unidad extraible puede dar problemas de compatibilidad.

La instalación es muy lenta de configurar.

Tiene errores a veces al importar proyectos pudiendo generar nuevos errores y fallos en la interfaz gráfica.

"One Stop Tool for Android App Development!"

What do you like best?

>Android Studio uses the quick growing Gradle build system that is so integrated, and Gradle is really a great tool.

>User Interface: Very nice User Interface with projects pane on left and Code debug on buttom and a clear big interface to write code. Includes all necessary tools at right places.

>Best in Class Code Completion: We have to agree, Android Studio has advanced code completion which is better than it's counterparts like Eclipse and makes linking files of your app a breeze. Helps alot to those wtih Less knowledge of JAVA.

>Built in Drag & Drop Visual Editor: A much needed feature for the beginners, and advanced users alike cause it makes layout design a lot easier!

What do you dislike?

>The Biggest factor that I cosider negative for this product is that it consumes much RAM and uses lot of resources. Starting of this app can be slow on Intel i3 and lower or equivalent AMD processors. BUT, with subsequent updates, much bugs have been fixed, and load times have improved.

>The layout manager should have more options like keeping Border Radius inbuilt instead of making a seperate XML file for having that.

>Often times we don't understand how our app crashes, even after a successfull Run. Error recognition mechanisms should be provided such that recognition of the errors is possible even to the Beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are into making Android Apps using Java, don't look further, this is the best solution you can have!!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main purpose Android Studio is built for is making Android Applications. And, it is the best in the industry in doing so. It even includes a built in Device Emulator for those who don't have a physical Android device and they can run apps they make using AS on the emulators.

>It now officially supports Kotlin Language which has better syntax and structure than Java.

"Achieve more with Android Studio"

What do you like best?

Android studio is very easy to use. It requires very little prior coding experience to operate. It works well with other applications development platforms like Eclipse and Genymotion. It offers a user-friendly environment along with a strong and vibrant user community.

What do you dislike?

The software still requires some level of residual programming experience to work with optimally. The premium package is also a little bit expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This, in my opinion, is the best Android development software you can find. It is highly recommended

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in the Data Analysis division of a magazine production firm where technical proficiency in relevant applications design and development is a necessary prerequisite. Android Studio has helped in a lot of ways to steepen my learning curve. I can develop android apps and that is mostly down to my use of Android Studio

"The most effective android development tool available in the market."

What do you like best?

When coding with android studio i use very minimal effort especially because of the code suggestions. Android studio also enables me to update the IDE so i can get the latest API versions automatically installed on my IDE.

When starting a new project, android studio has a variety of suggestions so i don't have to code from scratch, e.g there are default activities such as map activity, sliding tabs activity and many more. This cuts down the amount of time i would have used to start writing the code from scratch.

What do you dislike?

The gradle build system uses a lot of computer resources, especially the Memory and the disk. It makes it almost impossible to use another application when the android gradle is building.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android studio is simply the best software to use when it comes to android app development, i can't recommend any other software for this task.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android studio has enabled us to develop mobile applications rapidly and effectively with very minimal expenditure and optimized time-lines. We are able to meet time-lines as well as develop products to the specification of the client, both design-wise and functionality wise.

"The best android development IDE i have used this far."

What do you like best?

Android studio is very easy to install, setup and deploy. Most of the features are added alongside the installation, such as SDK's for all android Operating Systems available.

Android studio also comes with inbuilt android emulators for all android OS versions.

This saves a lot of time used to test android Apks.

What do you dislike?

The only problem i have with android studio is the resource consumption. It uses too much RAM and this makes it very difficult to run other applications simultaneously.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android studio is simply the most reliable android development platform available in the market. All android developers should not be considering any other applications to use except this one. I highly recommend this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android Studio enables for robust application development and allows for agile development model.

This saves me as a developer a lot of time and in turn increases our customers confidence.

It also allows for external applications integrations such as Firebase that allows for real-time database management. This has enable my company to increase it's income with selling of real-time android applications such as chat applications as well as vehicle hailing applications.

"Creation of Android apps has never been better"

What do you like best?

I have been using Android Studio for close to a year now and it has helped me create several android apps, some of which I have on several play stores. It provides a variety of tools and features with ensures that you do not necessarily have to be a coding guru before creating apps. It supports intuitiveness and imagination

What do you dislike?

The user interface appears quite sophisticated. Some understanding of Java and perhaps other high-level understanding is still required to a certain degree

Recommendations to others considering the product

With Android Studio, you can create as many Android apps as you like. It's easy and intuitive. A trial convinced me, it will convince you too

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in the aviation sector, and I have been able to use Android Studio to create apps which have made executing IT projects a whole lot easier

"perfect for android developer"

What do you like best?

You need not to memorize the code completely as methods can be invoke just by typing a keyword.

Each and every method can be invoke in the android studio itself,making it independent for use.No other software is required with it.Developers who are not perfect at java,also need not to worry as only basic java is being used in this software.A complete supportive package,it carries along with it ensuring the developer to use it more frequently than any other software.

What do you dislike?

For the android developers, who wish to implement there own methods and doesn't want to invoke predefined methods, the software shows error.Thus it resists creative and innovatory mind of an android developer.Rarely, the app built using this software crash for no reason.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's and easy to use software for android developer which can be considered as a blessing as we are getting it for free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being an Android Developer, i am building the android apps with android studio.I have realised that the software doesn't require much knowledge which is the key feature of the software for the beginners.

"Native IDE for Android development"

What do you like best?

I love built-in static code analysis, it warns you about potential errors like memory leaks or performance issues and suggest best practices to improve your code.

It also has complete integration with Android ecosystem: logcat, layout inspector, theme editor, virtual device and SDK manager, Firebase integration, ready-to-go templates.

It is a no-brainer after it got support for native C++ code. Now you can write Android apps in Java, Kotlin, C++ and Dart. Can't imagine better IDE for Android development.

What do you dislike?

It is written in Java, and sometimes feels heavy on RAM usage.

Has some bugs with logcat and often fails to extract exact error message from build logs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Android Studio to develop Android application. Since Android Studio has everything you need for Android development, you don't have to use anything else to create your apps quickly, run your code, test use cases and collect debugging information.

As a result, we have a pretty quick turnaround on our prototypes and code improvements, releasing updates within one working day.

"Una herramienta realmente útil para el desarrollo Android."

What do you like best?

Android Studio es un herramienta muy completa, destacaría muchas cosas, pero las que me resultan más útiles son:

- El creador de layouts es muy intuitivo, y las clases predefinidas vienen muy bien para poder iniciar un proyecto de manera rápida y sencilla.

-El inspector es realmente útil para los que tenemos que ceñirnos a un diseño concreto, nos hace poder ver en tiempo de ejecución cómo se pintan nuestros componentes.

- Comparado con antiguas herramientas de desarrollo Android como Eclipse, los tiempos de desarrollo se han acortado mucho y nuestros clientes pueden recibir sus productos mucho antes.

What do you dislike?

El tiempo de compilación a veces es demasiado alto cuando el proyecto es muy grande, y el programa va bastante lento si se usa en ordenadores que no son de última generación. A veces el programa se queda bloqueado y hay que hacer varios "clean" para poder seguir utilizándolo con normalidad. Las API's mínimas que piden para implementar según qué funciones a veces resulta demasiado alta. La instanciación de algunos elementos gráficos se hace a veces muy verbosa en el código. No hay una línea clara a seguir a la hora de usar una arquitectura determinada para un proyecto grande.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android Studio is the ultimate software for Android development. It is essential.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trabajo para una empresa de desarrollo móvil, por lo que utilizamos Android Studio es nuestro día a día en todas las aplicaciones Android que nos requieren nuestros clientes.

"Android Studio!"

What do you like best?

It is an excellent tool for the development of Android. Its interface is very intuitive and helps the user a lot when creating applications. Its function to visualize live the application that I am developing makes the experience more interesting, I can monitor the progress besides that it is very easy! The templates it offers are great help, such as Maps, which is usually something that I apply at the moment of development. Finally, the feature that I like the most and that is very useful is that you can use emulators to see the actual operation of my applications, which is excellent since I can see the progress of the application or if any modification is needed. Without a doubt, it is the best IDE for Android development, I loved it!

What do you dislike?

To have Android Studio it is necessary to have certain high features in your computer, that is, it is a very heavy environment and causes too much consumption of resources for the PC to work correctly, which generates more waiting time to compile and execute the applications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When developing web applications in my remote work, it has been much easier since Android Studio allows me to verify and test the real functionality of my application, so I am always attentive to the changes I make in my applications.

"Powerful IDE for Android Development"

What do you like best?

Android Studio is very easy to install and use. The IDE has everything you need for managing SDKs, tools, as well as virtual devices (emulators). The user interface is well put together, allowing you to easily navigate your project and find the options you are looking for. There are many plugins that can be added to this IDE also.

Android Studio provides suggestions to your code to help prevent possible errors as well as shows you were syntax errors are in your code. It also has a drag and drop layout editor, which is great if you don't like the guesswork that can sometimes be involved with manually editing XML layout files.

What do you dislike?

Android Studio, overall, is a very powerful IDE, however it does have some drawbacks. It is very resource intensive, causing performance issues when limited RAM is available on your device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android Studio is a very well put together IDE that helps streamline Android Development. The layout editor is easy to use and helps take care of the guesswork of a properly displayed UI. Code completion assistance helps get things done quicker.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android Studio has helped make Android game and app development easier. The code completion features help get things done quicker and the highlighting of syntax errors helps fix the issues before attempting to build the project only for it to fail. Android Studio has helped me build beautiful layouts without ever once having to touch the XML layout file.

"The RAM consumption is worrying"

What do you like best?

Android studio is fairly straight forward when it comes to installing, setting up and deployment.

The features are also optimized specifically for android development tasks, e.g the SDK's available cover all android versions.

What do you dislike?

Android studio doesn't do a very good when it comes to resource consumption and utilization.

4GB of Ram is consumed fully when trying to run a gradle build. It is next to impossible when i try to run another application simultaneously.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Apart from the resource consumption, android studio is actually the best software to use when it comes to android development and app testing. I highly recommend it to all developers interested in android apps.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android studio reduces the time it takes to deliver android projects. Inbuilt app frameworks are available such as tabbed views, google map application, this means developers don't have to write code from scratch.

"Extremely good for Android Programming"

What do you like best?

This is the swiss knife of android development! Easy, convenient and simple! I love the interface of Android studio, the package manager is also awesome! Keep app structure clean and easy to work with!

What do you dislike?

The Feature enriched android studio is pretty robust! But, It takes a lot of memory, which sometimes becomes a drawback for low end computers! Also, the Gradle build is another factor when considering the performance. It really takes time! But, overall I would give A+ to android studio. It is indeed a great product!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend others to use android studio. It is an key tool for android developers to help them build scalable and good apps.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We develop android application for mobile users. We also create mobile interface or native app of web application using this. The most significant benefit we have is it made us more productive! And, helped to faster the development phase

"Everything you need to develop Android Apps in one editor!"

What do you like best?

Android Studio is the Android Apps develop Platform for excellence. It is constantly updated, easy to use, fully customizable and even more light and fast with the development and release of new versions.

It is very well supported from the community, and there are hundred of tutorials, web sites, youtube channels etc.. that can help you and guide you in both baseline and advanced development. And least but not last it's totally free!

What do you dislike?

Initially the tool could scare because of the huge amount of information and tools that it puts in front of those who use it for the first time, but with some practice it became even more familiar and it will be easy to use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a must have tool if you want develop android native app. It have integrat all you can need to develop, edit, test, analyse etc the app before release. It's free and always updated. There are also a great community and hundred of guides, tutorial, and videos that can guide you throw the use of the tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the tool we can easy develop, debug, and edit our Android Apps, we can test them before the release thanks to the useful android emulator integrated.

"Good Tool for Android Development"

What do you like best?

Android Studio is free and runs on any Operating System ever.. as it is cross-platform! So if you are working on a project on Windows, you can easily shift to MAC without any of the progress getting hampered. It's made from InteliJ, which is open source IDE!

What do you dislike?

It is a RAM eater and one needs minimum 8 GB of RAM in order to have a smooth experience with Android Studio! Also, sometimes PC hangs if two or more processes are running together in Android Studio

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't go for Eclipse or any other IDE for Native Android Development, as they are obselete now. Go only and only for Android Studio!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ofcourse, building Android apps and UI Testing for apps. Expresso UI Testing is really beneficial when we are publishing our app because we do not need to test all the features of our app manually and basically the apps are built bug free, so more user retention and good user experience too!

"Best Tools for Creating Android Apps"

What do you like best?

First of all, Android Studio has the most beautiful dark theme. I am using it for my own mobile developments and it has an emulator as well. It is fast and easy to use, no memory leak.

In additional, you can add your apps directly to the Google play or you can make apk for your app and you can share it or install it into your android phone. Gradle Integration, Advanced Code Completion and Refactoring are good features. Also it has "Instant Run" feature, it will allow you to change codes and see how it is work without close and restart your emulator. It really saves a lot of time. As a Result, you should really see Android Studio before using other IDE's, you will not regret !

What do you dislike?

You should have good computer to use it fast. SSD also necessary for high performance.

Sometimes hard to detect errors in web.

Updating Android Studio version may create problem, it effects previous application they gives an error and i could not find any solution. Because of these sometimes i do not update my Android studio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

İt is free to use and download.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can build your app and create your apk and test it easily with your test phone before upload it to Google Play. Also there is no other place for build your mobile apps. Eclipse is not good for android, but Android Studio just what you need !

"Entorno de desarrollo para Android"

What do you like best?

Que es un entorno para desarrolladores Android profesionales totalmente gratuito, la sintaxis es perfectamente comprensible, así como los comentarios y las ordenes de las líneas de código que vamos desarrollando en este excelente entorno. Puedes ir realizando pruebas de tus algoritmos y de tus aplicaciones directamente dentro de Android studio ya que te ofrece la posibilidad de emular un dispositivo con android en las diferentes versiones de sistemas operativos android que han salido.

What do you dislike?

El IDE es bastante pesado consume muchísimos recursos, incluso la instalación es muy complicada porque debemos instalar una gran cantidad de complementos para que todo funcione correctamente.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android studio es la evolución del IDE eclipse, incluso si venimos desarrollando aplicaciones para android con eclipse y nos cambiamos a android studios, podemos importar los algoritmos y proyectos que hemos desarrollado y nos encontrábamos desarrollando en el IDE de eclipse y pasarlos a Android studios sin ningun problema.

Adaptarse a android studio no tomara mucho tiempo y si quieres comenzar a desarrollar aplicaciones para Android este IDE es la mejor opción.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gracias a Android studio e podido dar un paso mas allá de solo desarrollar aplicaciones web con java, ya que gracias a Android studio puedo utilizar Kotlin que es un lenguaje de programación mucho mas sencillo de entender para desarrollo de aplicaciones en Android. Incluso si ya venimos de aprender y entender el lenguaje de programación java, rapidamente nos podemos adaptar a Android studios con el lenguaje de programación Kotlin.

"The best and only IDE for Android development"

What do you like best?

Best thing I like about this IDE is that it is meant for Android development which has a support for Java and Kotlin languages. It has very good debugging tool which helped me in debugging and finding the root cause of the issue easily. Moreover it has various amount of plugins which helped me in developing the application faster. Apart from it, it has very good in-built support of version control system like Git which helped me and my team members. You can easily execute Git commands from this IDE only so that you do not need any extra Git client software. It has very good memory analyzer tool which helped me in identifying memory leaks of my application.

What do you dislike?

It takes a lot of resources/memory to run. Hence sometimes it hangs or takes a lot of time just to build the project. Apart from it, it doesn't have good emulator support which can be improved. Apart from this, there is nothing much which I don't like about this IDE.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are the Android developer then this is the best IDE available which has been built by Google only.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using this IDE for the development of Android application. It helped me in developing the application faster and better way just because of it's lots of features and plugins.

"Android studio presente en el mundo"

What do you like best?

Hoy en día un gran porcentaje de la población utiliza android como sistema operativo, por ende miles de desarrolladores están trabajando en apps para android para hacernos la vida mucho mas fácil, ya que muchisimas de esas apps son de uso diario y un ejemplo que todos conocemos es el uso que se le dan a las redes sociales.

Android studio es un IDE enfocado para el desarrollo de aplicaciones Android, una de las cosas que mas me gusta de android studio es que posee su propio emulador android para ir viendo los cambios y avances que le estemos realizando a la aplicación que estamos desarrollando.

Su interfaz gráfica es muy entendible y lo mejor de todo el IDE de android studio es completamente GRATUITO.

What do you dislike?

Es de esperarse que un IDE tan completo como android studio sea pesado, pero su instalación la verdad es que es bastante tediosa, primero debemos instalar el java jdk para que pueda reconocernos el lenguaje de programación java, luego instalar android studio y finalmente instalar los nkd, esto solo es el proceso de instalación, luego debemos instalar en emulador de android para poder hacer pruebas de nuestras de las apps que iremos desarrollando, instalar los sistemas operativos de android y luego configurar ciertos parámetros para que todo funciona correctamente. Todo esto se vuelve muy tedioso y complicado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android studio es una poderosa herramienta para desarrollo de aplicaciones en android, es un IDE totalmente gratuito y con una interfaz gráfica muy profesional.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Actualmente no he resuelto ningún problema empresarial con el uso de android studio, pero si e tenido la oportunidad de desarrollar pequeñas apps, e ir viendo el resultado de las mismas dentro de android studio.

android studio is a best tools to help me and my be you all, to build some Apps. i use it every day. In Android studio you can do everything. You can write code everything you want, you can import library, you can manage minimum sdk, you can make your code connect to git, and even you can directly upload your apk to Google Playstore on it.

"Great tool for developers"

What do you like best?

Massive user base

Increasing adoption, especially in developing countries

Ease of making the app publicly available. Android's review process for apps is fairly simple and it takes lesser time than iOS, for an app to get approved for publishing on the play store.

What do you dislike?

Multitude of devices to take care of, and not just different screen sizes, but different resolutions too. This makes the app design, as well as UI development much harder.

Quality of apps on the Play Store is much worse than those on the App Store. This is primarily because of Apple's stringent review policies. They do not allow low quality apps to be published.

Monetization-wise iOS apps still rule the charts. Though Android is catching up, it is still going to be a while before it begins to match up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I resolved some company projects and problems. For the uni, I had made some Android Projects using Android studio.

"I f***** love android studio"

What do you like best?

It's FREE. And from the intellij source code. Designed by Google. I love intellij's line of product's new features and constant updating of it's IDE. It's like a kitchen sink of awesome tools. Add Google's constant support and development of it, and it becomes the ultimate android IDE. The new Android Studio update and Kotlin support is evidence of what I'm talking about. I have recommended Android Studio to everyone since the beginning.

A few years ago, Android Studio's default emulator was really slow and a pain in the butt to work with. And everyone basically had to use Genymotion's emulator. But it has since been updated and is as fast, if not faster than any of the 3rd party emulator software out there.

Did I say it's FREE? Unlike intellij's other software which cost a ton, Android Studio is provided by Google for free. FREE!

What do you dislike?

It'll really bog your computer down. You should have at least 4GB of Ram on a good computer to run android studio at the same time at it's emulator. Smoothly. I recommend going up to 8GB of RAM. I personally bought a 12 GB RAM laptop just so I can have multiple android studio windows and emulators open so I can work on multiple projects at the same time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look up TheNewBoston's youtube video on Android Studio interface. It teaches you the UI really quickly. Because if you have never touched IntelliJ software before, the whole kitchen sink of a user interface will confuse you real quick.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building Android apps. Let's be honest here, what else are you going to build Android apps with? Eclipse? Eclipse is so buggy and outdated, it's not even a competition.

"A great experience"

What do you like best?

It has a code editor that offers an autocomplete while we write the code and makes coherent suggestions according to what we are programming. The compilation is very fast and the emulator executes the application in real time while we observe and correct the errors, it offers a preview in the different devices. It use ProGuard to optimize and protect the code and integrate with Gradle to automate and make work more fluid.

What do you dislike?

It takes up too much space on the hard drive and increases a lot with each update, it also consumes a large amount of RAM.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a reliable and stable IDE. It has many benefits, so you should try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software allows me to create mobile applications in an effective and fast way due to its features. Despite the disadvantage that is the requirement of RAM and hard disk, it's still an excellent option. I've been developing apps for a year and I can say that I'm very satisfied with the results.

I face only one problem with the android studio. It requires a lot of RAM and time while starting the first time and first gradle build. If you have 8GB or above RAM then you don't worry about Android studio. Nothing to dislike all features are good to perform its own functions. I like it.

This IDE is best suited for development of android application. It's build system is very fast compared to other IDEs for android development. Lots of plugin are also available which helps in developing the application faster. It also provides the Kotlin support and also can convert existing Java application into Kotlin. It has also provided version control support like Git so that you don't have to explicitly download the plugin.

It takes a lot of time in starting the IDE mostly in windows system. It takes a lot of time just to show design view of the xml file and sometimes it gets hanged too. Inbuilt code analyzer tool can be better.

"Great IDE for Android Development"

What do you like best?

The IDE has a lint very exhaustive by default. Adding a new component to a project is so easy as select new component from the project contextual menu and it generates the structure just for you.

The continuous integration service with Gradle is one of the best componets, allowing to develop strong apps and avoiding to afford common programming errors.

What do you dislike?

I don't like much the load of the computer when I am using Android Studio. Some options are hard to find in the menu but keyboard shortcuts are really helping out in the day to day tasks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are currently developing an app for our main product and Android Studio make the process easier automating a big part of the process.

"Best IDE for Android Apps Development"

What do you like best?

Android Studio is the best suitable IDE for developing apps. It helps you build the apps with its latest gradle build environment. It supports modern programming languages such as Kotlin too. There are various profiling tools such as Memory, Network, CPU profiler to help you optimise the app performance. It even supports native C++ code for some of the heavy memory tasks. The built-in layout editor helps you easily create and update layouts with just simple drag-and-drop methods.

What do you dislike?

Android Studio requires a large portion of your memory around minimum of 4GB. So, it doesn't work smoothly with the computer with a low memory. The initial configuration requires the Android SDK to be downloaded and you'll need the proper high-speed internet connection in order to work efficiently with Android Studio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are an Android app developer and still working with IDEs other than Android Studio, then it is definitely recommended to switch to Android Studio since it has the most advanced features than any other IDEs available and will help you develop faster with a better quality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been using Android Studio for 2 years for developing apps where I work as well as for developing my personal apps. Android Studio really accelerates the speed of development because of its integrated tools such as code completion and instant run.
