"Powerful IDE for Android"

What do you like best?

I like everything about this IDE as it is developed specifically for Android development only. The best feature which I like about it is instant run which runs the application without building it from scratch. It just builds the changes that you have made and directly runs it. This has been really really useful to me as it saves the time for building and running the application. I like memory profiling, debugging tool, good emulator support and more other features. You can install different plugins for better development.

What do you dislike?

One thing which I don't like about this IDE is that it doesn't have good support for other programming languages like Python, Swift. For that, you need to download other IDEs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the best and powerful IDE for Android development. It is recommended by Google as well. So if you are Android development then go for it without any hesitation.

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

Android Studio helped me a lot in developing the Android application better way compared to other IDEs. Moreover, it is an official IDE for Android development, hence it has given more and more features which has been required for Android development.

"Excelente software para crear aplicaciones"

What do you like best?

Una de las cosas que más me agrada es que la compilación se realiza rápidamente. Tiene un botón llamado Instant Run que permite compilar y ver los cambios de inmediato. Tiene un sistema de autocompletar que permite agilizar la programación y puede identificar y predecir los comandos que vamos a insertar. Las sugerencias son bastante acertadas a pesar de que muchos métodos y funciones pueden llamarse de la misma manera. Otra utilidad bastante importante y que aprecio es el poder traducir las apps a diferentes idiomas de forma muy simple y sencilla.

What do you dislike?

Hasta el momento me parece que es un software bastante completo y, aunque no es muy fácil de usar, te da las herramientas de aprendizaje adecuada para lograrlo en poco tiempo.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es un software bastante completo, que requiere conocimientos básicos previos para poder usarlo y que, como herramienta de aprendizaje, es bastante útil.

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

Como asesor de tesis y guía en la realización de proyectos del área de informática, estoy aprendiendo a usar esta herramienta para la creación de apps ya que es una de las mas utilizada en proyectos por mis alumnos. Recordemos que cada vez más rápidamente, el uso de Smartphones está creciendo y la demanda de apps también. Estoy en proceso de aprendizaje todavía pero el software me lo hace más sencillo, debido a su habilidad de autocompletado y a su interfaz gráfica. Existe mucho material en Internet para practicar y poner a prueba debido, más que nada, a su licencia de código abierto

"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 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.

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.

"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 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 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's Implementation and layout design is Awesome"

What do you like best?

Android Studio is a totaly free Android development Software, its implementation editor is very useful for Android developers. Android studio provides shortcuts for coding and designing, its layout designer makes it very easy to use it reduces my time for coding. Android studio provides drag and drop feature to design the layout of our projects. Today mostly all business need their own Android Applications which can be developed easily with the help of Android studio.

What do you dislike?

While downloading Android studio it if you use old AMD CPU,s then it may be very slow to download and you cannot use it until full download.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Android Studio is very powerful software for App development, if you want to use it then I suggest you to use fast processors like i3, i5 etc. to work this software effectively.

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

I am using it for App developments

"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 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.

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Programa gratuito de creacion de aplicaciones Android recomendado para nuevos y avanzados usuarios asi como a cualquier tipo de empresa que trabaje en el ámbito de desarrollo de aplicaciones móviles.

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

Desarrollo de aplicaciones Android para emularlas desde el mismo sistema de trabajo y finalmente subirlas a una plataforma en la nube.

"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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.

"Awesome tool for Android app Developement"

"Awesome and Fast Official Android IDE"

What do you like best?

It is the best and fast Android IDE available. The best feature which I like is that to design a UI for your application, they have provided drag and drop functionality in which you can drag and drop the UI components to actually design it and preview them as well. Instant run is the another important and useful feature for any Android developer as it reduces the debugging time. It has a very good debugging tool as well. You can also create the patch files of your existing source code to share with your team members locally. Apart from Java, it has provided support for Kotlin languages as well.

What do you dislike?

Even though it is developed for Android development, I still hope that they should give support for other programming languages like C/C++/Python. Apart from this, there is not much which I don't like about this IDE.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend this to all the Android developer as it is an official IDE and will help you in developing the application much faster and better way.

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

I have been using Android Studio for the development of Android application. It really helped me in developing, debugging and to maintain the code quality as well by installing their plugins. It also helped me in analyzing the memory for my application.

"Android studio: a complete feature rich IDE for developing android apps"

What do you like best?

Android studio from Google is recommended and the official IDE required to develop applications of android platform. One of the best thing in Android Studio is that it has so many third-party integrations such as version control, firebase, AdMob, etc. which really makes my work too much easy and saves my lot of time. Code editor and its functionalities are countless. One thing that I like the most is that the "CTRL+CLICK" to go to usage reference is most helpful for me. It would have been impossible for me to develop apps without android studio with good efficiency and effectiveness.

What do you dislike?

On low hardware spec machine, android studio emulator is a very heavy tool to run. It just freezes many times at staring. Other than that, Android studio has problems in cache sometimes if I change the location of the main project file.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Android studio is free of cost IDE to use for andorid app development. And it is an official IDE recommend by Google itself, So it is good to consider it.

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

As a mobile app developer, I use Android Studio as my primary tool for developing apps in android. Github as version control system, that we use in our organization is also very well internally maintained by the android studio itself.

"Excellent IDE to work with Android"

What do you like best?

As you may notice, Android Studio is very based on IntelliJ IDEA, but focused in Android Development either with Java or Kotlin, therefore, one of the best features it presents is the plugin system as well as the debugging process. Both are life-saving features, which can save a lot of time while developing an app. It provides an interface to the ADB, meaning that you can create a virtual device and execute your application in your computer without the need of a physical device.

What do you dislike?

To be completely honest, I do not have any negative opinion regarding Android Studio. I have found it has been a pleasant IDE to work on.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I have no recommendation to provide to Android Studio developers.

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

I was looking for an IDE to work in creating an app, which the recommended is Android Studio. Being recommended by Google means that it will have great documentation as well as good community support.

"Android Studio 2.3.3"

What do you like best?

Ever since I learned programming in Java and learned about creating xml files, I have been using Android studio to develop android apps! The features are very helpful, and I particularly like the drag and drop option. Since it is by google, of course it is completely free, which no one can complain about. Really good for professional app development.

What do you dislike?

Android studio uses A LOT of memory and gets stuck midway. It is very slow, and can be extremely frustrating at times! The IDE also has a lot of bugs. The installation time for android studio is extremely long. Also, the installation is not very straightforward! You need to look up the right emulator and JDK versions etc before you can start coding.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend people to watch a decent youtube tutorial for setting up android studio and look up the features provided and how they can make the best of the features.

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

I currently use Android Studio to develop an inventory management app for CVS using REST API and focusing on the security aspects of it. I have found it to give you a lot of control and power over app development. Although it is fiddly, overall I find it very helpful.

"The best Android IDE, but not perfect."

What do you like best?

There are multiple IDE's that you can use to develop Android applications but by far the most powerfull and official is to use Android Studio. This is the official IDE developed by Google for Android SO. As it is the official IDE for Android it means that it is the fastest updated development platform in the market. The best thing in my opinion about Android Studio is that it is very easy to build the interface of the app we are developing . It has a good interface designer and previewing the layouts of the app is really fast. A good thing I like about Android Studio is that it shows us, at the beggining when we start to develop an app, the most used Android version at the moment and it recommends the one we should choose to start the development.

What do you dislike?

Android studio is very heavy for the computer. It spends too much RAM and CPU and it's much noticeable when we run the Android emulator. Some bugs, like running the app and the Android emulator shutting down by itself, are really anoying and I have to restart the computer/IDE lots of times. Google should be faster when resolving this kind of issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Android Studio for who wants to develop a native Android app even for personal use. It's free to use and there are lots of online communities that can help you develop what you want and most of them use Android Studio .

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

I developed recently and app with Android Studio for a company in about 1 month. It was easy to show the progress of the app with the emulator and it helped to dispose the best positions of some buttons, images etc. of the app interface with the client on my side.

"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 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!

"Gateway for creating Apps for one of the largest community OS"

What do you like best?

JAVA based tools that doesn't require any introduction in our industry. It is widely used mainly because of its community that supports this open source software.

Its auto manage dependencies is one of the best feature of this software. Just include it in gradle and sync it...done ! all the changes will be done on its own. Its interface to work with modules are also not that difficult to learn and manage.

It also includes virtual SDK's where you do not have to buy original phone and then do test on that. It allows you to download any particular SDK and develop your application on that specific SDK so saving your real money.

What do you dislike?

Minimum hardware requirements for running this tool is above average. With systems less than 4 gigs RAM it can take forever to build the project. And the chances for crashes while working with Virtual Device is high for this low end system. Though it may not be problem for large companies but for small scles, it has high startup cost for purchasing high configuration PC.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With wide community support it is sure to grow very rapidly so choosing this over other could be preferable.

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

Our company's all the android development is done with this tool. The response from our employees is too much positive while working with Android Studio. Exporting Importing application and integrating modules is smooth without any difficulty. Also many tutorials are available on internet so employees mostly are able to solve their problems without concerning to their higher officials.

"Un buen entorno de desarrollo para el sistema operativo móvil más usado."

What do you like best?

Estamos ante el mejor entorno de desarrollo para android sin duda, hecho a medida para él. Control de versiones, actualizaciones con frecuencia, una gran comunidad a sus espaldas y un sin fin de ventajas. Es gratuito y no ocupa mucho espacio en disco. Posibilidad de tener r máquinas virtuales de diferentes dispositivos para ir probando los desarrollos.

What do you dislike?

Le falta por mejorar algunas funciones que no terminan de convencer. Para usuarios noveles puede impresionar a primera vista, ya que dispone de multitud de opciones que tendrás que ir aprendiendo y que no son muy intuitivas al principio, lo que lo hace complejo inicialmente. Los kit de desarrollo ocupan demasiado espacio.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Recomendable. Indispensable si trabajas con desarrollos para android, no vas a encontrar otro entorno mejor. Tienes alternativas como Eclipse, pero Android Studio te lo da todo mucho más fácil

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

Si programas para Android encontrarás una gran ventaja, ahorras tiempo y lo tienes todo a mano. Te permite optimizar tu tiempo y trabajo en equipo, lo que finalmente se traduce en mejores desarrollos.
