Android Studio is the official development suite from Android, combining all elements of the app building process. With a code editor, virtual android emulator and code templates, this free development suite aims to provide a streamlined service for app creators.

Complete App Development

Thanks to Android's expert hand, Android Studio is a great piece of software and a real boon for app developers. Everything is polished to a high level, help and advice are professional and to the point, and template code integration from GitHub is as simple as a Google search. Android Studio's various functions work together seamlessly, meaning that any changes to code can be seen instantly in the virtual device emulator. This brings a whole new level of immediacy often lacking in other development suites. While this software will not be suitable for an absolute beginner, anyone with a basic coding background will understand it quickly.

Fast and Free

Android have provided a fantastic free tool for their development community which should be used by any serious app creator. Android Studio dramatically increases development time, meaning that the tricky creation of interesting apps is more focused on the creative side rather than wrestling with a number of separate systems. Android have always been a community-focused company but with this release the world of app development is open like never before.
