Overall Satisfaction with Android Studio

[Android Studio is] being used mostly by the engineering team, and that too specifically by the Android engineers coding in Kotlin / Java, along with the Product Management and Quality Analyst teams. Since it's an app development tool, it doesn't find any use case with the non technical departments and is only used by technology teams.
  • Quick to learn and easy to use
  • Debugging is super easy
  • Open source
  • Needs high performance system/laptop
  • Leads to crashes on most basic windows laptops as it takes a lot of RAM
  • Need to make system level changes to let Flutter work with this
  • Support/built in integration with Google cloud, firebase, and other google tools
  • Ease of use and fast learning curve for younger engineers in team
  • Easy code compilation, better error handling and helps with faster app releases
  • It has led to need for lesser releases and bugs are pre identified by Android Studio
  • Helps save on almost 20-30% need for additional tech resources, and thus saves cost
  • Has made us buy high performance machines and laptops
Android Studio is the best possible offering to make android based apps. It's a product by Google and the official integrated development environment for android app development. That's why it is able to offer the easiest to learn and simplest coding environment to developers. But it needs higher performance and is at times slower as compared to Flutter, etc. So that's the only drawback, but overall it's better than most tools for app development.

[Android Studio is] best suited for beginners and even intermediate developers as it offers complete assistance and highlights errors and suggestion to improvise the code. It even predicts the code with a good level of accuracy to help the developer who are new. It's. It well suited for large scale teams as it needs high performing systems as well as it's not the optimum tool for collaboration coding. Though you could integrate with git and make it work, but other solutions might be better for large scale teams.
