IDE for developing android Application

Integrated development environment popularly used as IDE is a platform or I can say a helper which help the programmer to code any software with different facilities, which make easy for the programmer to develop software.

Basically, a normal IDE consist of source code editor, build to check code and debugging tool, etc.

What are IDE available for developing android apps?

In my knowledge and the IDE which I know for android are 20 in number’s, with different support and facility every IDE work differently to develop .apk android file. (.apk) is an extension of the android application file, when the coding part is completed in every IDE we have to create the .apk file of our project to upload our android application on Google Play store or any other application hosting service.

Android App IDE by Google

Android Studio and Android NDK (Native Development Kit) are two IDE provided by Google for the programmer, both of them work differently as Android Studio can be used for coding in different programming languages, especially for JAVA and XML. But on another hand Android NDK allows programming in  C and C++ reducing your time f you are not familiar with JAVA, I never used Android NDK to develop any Android application. My opinion will be to use Android Studio which is the best IDE for Android App development and even google don’t recommend Android NDK for general App development.

DEVELOP APP USING ANDROID STUDIO

It was my college project in the final year and as I have a habit to learn every time new things, selected project based on android app even was not knowing anything about android app development. Finally, after searching about the IDE  I got to know that Android Studio is the best IDE which provides customizing each and everything.

Activity are coded in JAVA and Layouts are created by using XML in android Studio, it provides some drag and drops feature for layouts. Hope you will love to start your android app development in Android Studio, there are different IDE available which may lead you away from basic coding.
