Overall Satisfaction with Android Studio

I am an Android developer at Mealocity Foodtech. I've held this position for more than 2.5 years. Since I learned Android, I am using Android Studio in my learning stage and also at my company.

Basically our company is a food aggregation company based in Mumbai, India and we are providing websites, Android applications and iOS applications for our clients as per their customization needs. So for Android applications we are only using Android Studio.

Android Studio is being used by our Mobile Development Department only.

Android Studio is solving our needs that are necessary for Android Development. We are, in fact, using Android Studio for Java development, Kotlin development, and Flutter development also.
  • Android Studio is the only software currently available in the market for Android development.
  • Before Android Studio people were using Eclipse. Currently, most of the developers are using Android Studio due to the following points.
  • Gradle file.
  • Inbuilt Android Virtual Device to test Android applications.
  • Android Debug Bridge.
  • Support of Geny Motion for low configured systems.
  • Easy to use and easy to understand Interface.
  • Available for cross-platform use for Windows, MacOS, Linux, etc.
  • Open-source software.
  • It comes with 24x7 Google support and JetBrains support to resolve problems.
  • Android Studio is very handy for Android development due to its self-creating or destroying coding enhancing techniques.
  • Android Studio needs a very high amount of RAM and a high-end processor to run smoothly, which can't be affordable for everyone.
  • Updates in Gradle files can sometimes come up with a hectic improvement in whole code, which can lead us to improve some code and consume precious time.
  • Multitasking is very difficult in Android Studio due to its heavy consumption of resources.
  • Due to Android Studio's day by day improvement, our company is making Android applications in more and more effective and efficient ways.
  • 24x7 support from Google and JetBrains is making our work running 24x7 smoother, and making our clients happier and happier day by day.
  • Due to the awesome animation and transition tricks, we are providing our clients more than they expected.
Basically Eclipse is a tool where you have to do all on your own from start to end.

Android Studio is using its Artificial Intelligence techniques to enhance our coding experience and offer better , suggestions to create methods, variables, classes, etc.

Real-time problem-solving techniques and an awesome user interface are just mind-blowing.
First of all Android Studio was developed by JetBrains Inc. which is the best software making company in the world. Second thing is that Android Studio comes up with the support of Google itself.

3. For Android development when you use Flutter and Dart as in your front-end development.
