What do you like best?

Specifically designed for Android App Development - so the interface is really developer friendly. Code completion feature comes in handy during the development. It provides drag and drop features that makes the designing process easy. Development output can be seen in real time in the emulator. You can also see the output directly in your mobile device.

What do you dislike?

The only to dislike about Android Studio is its very heavy weight. You need good amount of RAM and good processor to run this. So it makes your computer rather slow and it itself loads in some time. Even worse is the emulator. I cannot do anything else after running the emulator. I normally have to do the testing directly into by android device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are developing android application from scratch, then this tool is must have. Even for learning purpose this tool serves in great deal. It auto generates configurations which you can learn by looking at it. Development is really easy with the code completion feature. On the top of all, community support is available in very high volume and it will boost your development time.

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

Of course I use this for the development of android application. When I was student, I developed android application using android studio. The application was for the department of computer science and it was using for keeping track of records the inventories in the department.

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!

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.

It is the official IDE for Android and the best part is that it is the fastest tools for building apps on every type of Android device.

It takes lot of RAM.You should have at least 4-8 GB of Ram on a good computer / Laptop to run android studio smoothly. It has performance issues with ubuntu like most of time keys of keyboard get hanged / stucked creating performance issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

should consider on performance issues on ubuntu operating system and ram issues that make my system stuck most of times

Android Studio is one of the best android app development platform. It is very flexible to use, you can make every possible android apps in Android Studio without any problem. It provides every facility to you which will reduce your build time and increase your productivity. For example: "Instant Run" feature it will allow you to change codes and see the difference without close and restart your emulator.

What do you dislike?

I personally love Android Studio but the never ending updates bothers me some time and heavy specification of software is also a disadvantage if they reduce the weight of this software that would be perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are new or old in Android App Development, go for it will save your lots of time and it is the best platform for Android App Development I've ever used.

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

Android Studio saves my lots of time, especially the drag, and drop UI elements feature. Testing and Debugging is also very easy. After adding"Kotlin" language in Android Studio, it is now like Icing on the cake :)

Android Studio needing updates

What do you like best?

Android Studio is one of the best app design softwares out on the market right now. It has a lot of features that allow a user to create advanced apps. The design features are well done.

What do you dislike?

I have found Android Studio to be glitchy and encounter a lot of errors. It is really slow to load most of the time and is very particular about sdk and gradles which make it less user friendly for those who don't have as much experience.

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

We use Android Studio as part of the curriculum for a course I teach. The benefits are that students get hands on experience with software used in the workplace today. It also advances their capabilities with app design without having to do everything from scratch.
