Advantages of Using Android Official Tools
Where the domain of Android App Development is considered to be expansive and requires comprehensive knowledge of the facets involved in it, it therefore makes it imperative for the Android developers to make use of different tools so that they can dexterously design, develop and test their applications. This also helps in developing an optimized app sans any bugs or issues that cause hindrance to the users.
Well, before the year 2013, Android app developers made use of unofficial android tools and platforms to develop android applications but there were constant app crashes and bugs which compelled the professionals and developers to reprimand these tools.
However, in the year 2013, Google introduced new tools and a better backdrop that altered the way the developers developed their apps. But, the unofficial tools were still used by developers given that they were more used to their functionality. Well, it is not like Android doesn’t support these tools but they keep on introducing official SDKs so as to give the developers and users more convenience when it comes to developing apps.
That being said, let’s look at some advantages that the Android official tools present for Android app development:
Ease of Integration: With Android official tools developers and users get the ease of integration between the tools they employ. It also presents them with an enhanced and simpler programming experience.
Improved design and distribution: Android studio, one of the Android tools provides better workspace distribution giving the developers a more favorable setting to develop their apps.
Updates: Any app development updates that are introduced by the Google will initially be presented through the official tools. This would be beneficial to the developers as they would get to know about the latest updates before anyone else knows it.
Extensive Support: Well, after Google introduced Android studio they began focusing their support more on this platform. And this eventually limited and ceased Google’s support to third parties tools and platforms. The best example of this would be Eclipse which was introduced before Android studio.
Complete solution: The best thing about Android official tools is that it provides every key element (debuggers, emulators, tutorials, etc.) to the developers needed to design, develop and test their apps before they upload it to the Google Play.
