Android Studio is an Android app development platform.
Gradle-based build support. Android-specific refactoring and quick fixes. Lint tools to catch performance, usability, version compatibility and other problems. ProGuard and app-signing capabilities. Template-based wizards to create common Android designs and components. A rich layout editor that allows you to drag-and-drop UI components, preview layouts on multiple screen configurations, and much more. Built-in support for Google Cloud Platform, making it easy to integrate Google Cloud Messaging and App Engine as server-side components.
Note: Now requires OS X 10.8 or later.
- Android Studio can now convert PNG, BMP, JPG, and static GIF files to WebP format. WebP is an image file format from Google that provides lossy compression (like JPEG) as well as transparency (like PNG) but can provide better compression than either JPEG or PNG.
