Android Studio Overview
Android Studio is specially designed for developing applications for any Android device. It provides code editing with the best testing and debugging features. It is developed by Google for Android platform. This pack contains all the necessary requirements for Android development.
Android Studio is designed after the success of IntelliJ Idea, so it contains all the juice of IntelliJ Idea, and its intelligent tools provide the best development environment. It is based on Gradle Build which fixes the build paths along with many other build issues automatically. Its Sync feature maintains all the directories and the files synchronized for better performance. A Drag and Drop window with manual editing feature helps the developers to design a good UI without any trouble. Static Code analysis for identifying bugs was never this much easy as in this version.
This download contains built-in SDK tools which will help you in targeting and using different features support for different Android versions. Also, an AVD (Android Virtual Device) helps you to run the APK files on your computer if you want to test your APK files on different screen sizes and different Android versions.
Android Studio Editor
To keep its users comfortable it has a built-in suggestions module. Another good thing about Android Studio editor is that it provides live rendering for different SDK versions. The live rendering is a great feature for those who want to see the look and feel of the User Interface. Most of the code editors don’t provide immediate error fixes, but it has this feature as a built-in property.
The refactoring property keeps the projects error free, when any change occurs in the code, it is applied throughout the project. i.e. variable or class names or instance changes etc.
The separation between Java code and the XML layout files keeps the code and layout at two different levels which decrease the complexity of the projects maintainability.
