Overall Satisfaction with Android Studio

Android Studio has been used by us to develop a modern UI for android applications. It makes development very easy and robust. Virtual Emulator within the Android Studio makes it easier to debug the application along with the development. We have been using Android Studio for 1-2 years in order to develop Android applications projects.
  • It is very lightweight and resource management is done pretty well in this IDE.
  • It boots up very fast as compared to other development IDEs.
  • It is not a memory hungry IDE.
  • Even novices can work with this IDE very easily.
  • Emulator starts very slow in Android Studio, maybe that is the area where it needs improvement.
  • We have been developing and working on many Android projects.
  • One of the final undergrad projects was based on the blood donation nearest neighbor finder.
Android application development can also be done using the IntelliJ IDE. It is a very good IDE but it is paid for professional and commercial product development. However, IntelliJ IDE is available with a student license for limited application development features. Thus Android Studio is freely available to use, and that was one of the major reasons.
Overall support for Android Studio is quite good. As the project is maintained by Google itself, frequent updates are usually made to Android Studio to keep the IDE update and bug-free. Many community forums are also available to help developers across the world if they face any issue.

I would like to recommend that bot professional and even novice android application developers use Android Studio as a development IDE. It is free to use and easily available over the Internet. Moreover, It comes with a pre-installed Android Emulator to test applications. It is very easy to use and facilitates the feature of drag and drop android components as well. An XML parser is very good in this IDE.
