Overall Satisfaction with Android Studio
We are using Android Studio to develop android apps for internal use and external publication. This is a very standard way to build the packages we are using, and it allows us to do all the things we want to do, such as code signing, apk verification, standard and debug builds, etc.
- automated code signing
- interface to gradle builds
- usability with various packages is always a question mark
- so much freedom to alter things that stuff goes non-standard in a hurry
- we don't have to hunt around for people who know it, every mobile app developer already does
We personally did not try too many others because the staff who we hired to take on mobile development were already familiar with it and were able to get going quickly with it. They and all their peers had already worked through others and we were content to trust their experience.
Do you think Android Studio delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Android Studio's feature set?
Did Android Studio live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Android Studio go as expected?
Would you buy Android Studio again?
It's probably just the best, most standard, easiest to use build system for android that exists. It has a ton of features and doesn't really lack in any. Any stuff it is missing is gradually being added by the community authors, and community support is a really big thing for us.
