"Android Studio - IDE for Android App Development"

What do you like best?

Easy to use interface, real-life like Android emulator, smart code editor which predicts keywords. Easy to design an application using the drag and drop feature.

What do you dislike?

It takes up a lot of space in memory. This makes all the tasks slow. Takes a long time to load whenever we open the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Android Studio IDE, especially for a beginner trying to develop Android Apps. The design of an Android app is easy, considering you can just drag and drop the UI elements on the layout. The layout.xml file gets automatically updated.

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

I use it in my school for Android App Design and Development. It has made android app development easy for a novice.

"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.

"Great for Android Software Development"

What do you like best?

This software is easy and convenient to use. The interface is great, offering several possible themes, a good layout flow, and a package manager. Adding plugins is quick and simple. The software suggests possible edits to code for optimization and error prevention. The editing of layouts is easy with a drag and drop interface, should one not be comfortable with doing an interface programmatically.

What do you dislike?

While Android studio may be a great, powerful piece of software, it does use a lot of memory, which has led us to have to use machines with at least 8GB of RAM. When Gradle builds, it takes time and plays a big role in performance, leaving some of the interface to hang up. Overall though, the product is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android studio is a great piece of software. It allows for quick and easy Android app development, with helpful hints and suggestions to optimize code and reduce errors.

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

"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.

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!
