Android Studio is a free, cross-platform and open source graphical application implemented in Java and designed from the offset to be used for developing all sorts of applications for the Linux kernel-based Android mobile operating system.

Distributed as a part of the Android Tools project from Google

The Android Studio application is distributed is part of the Android Tools project from Google, which provides several useful and powerful tools for the development of Android apps on multiple platforms.

Among these tools, we can mention several Eclipse plugins, an Android OS Emulator, an Android SDK (Software Development Kit), the AVD (Android Virtual Disk) Manager, Hierarchyviewer, ddms, as well as other useful command-line utilities.

Easy-to-use and intuitive GUI

When fired up, the application will presents itself to the user with an easy-to-use and intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that allows the user to create a new project, import an existing project, open an existing project, check out a project from version control, as well as to configure various settings and read the built-in documentation and tutorials. All your recent projects will be displayed at a glance in the sidebar, on the right.

Android Studio 2.2 comes with enhancements across all development phases – Design, Development, Build and Test -, including a new Constraint Layout, Layout Editor, Firebase plug-in, Code Sample browser, Java 8 support, OpenJDK, GPU Debugger and others.

  • Constraint Layout – similar to RelativeLayout but more flexible and easier to work with in the layout editor. Useful to create complex layouts without nesting them.
  • Layout Editor – a user interface tool for designing an application’s layout via drag and drop, including a properties editor.
  • Experimental Layout Inspector – used to create a snapshot of the current view hierarchy that is executed on the emulator or an actual device to determine if a layout is rendered as expected.

  • Firebase services – AdMob, Analytics, Authentication, Notifications – can be easily integrated with an existing or a new application.
  • Code Sample Browser – finds code samples showing how a variable, method or type are used on GitHub.
  • Better Code Analysis & Lint checks – includes 260 Android Lint and code inspections, including Java 8 checks and cross-file analysis.
  • IDE based on IntelliJ 2022.1.3

  • The Jack compiler toolchain supports annotation processing and does incremental builds.
  • A number of Java 8 language features are supported including lambda expressions, type annotations, interface methods, method references.
  • Merged Manifest Viewer – used to see how the manifest merges with dependencies.
  • Experimental build cache – files and directories created in previous builds, even in different projects, are stored and reused to improve build time.
  • OpenJDK is now bundled with Android Studio. A different JDK can be used if desired.

  • Espresso Test Recorder (Beta) – records interactions with a UI to play them in an Espresso test locally or on Firebase.
  • GPU Debugger (Beta) – used to debug OpenGL ES applications.
  • APK Analyzer – provides size information about various components in an APK.
