Android Studio Installation Procedure

Some of the brilliant features are as follows:
  • Flexible Gradle-based build system
  • Build variants and multiple APK file generation
  • Code templates to help you build common app features
  • Rich layout editor with support for drag and drop theme editing
  • LINT tools to catch performance, usability, version compatibility and other problems as well
  • ProGuard and app-signing capabilities 
  • Built-in support for Google Cloud Platform, making it easy to integrate Google Cloud Messaging and App Engine

Of all the preceding features, the most important is the generation of multiple .apk files. That helps in Android wears development.

Gradle based build support

Gradle is a project automation tool that builds upon the concepts of Apache Ant and Apache Maven and introduces a Groovy-based domain-specific language (DSL) instead of the more traditional XML form of declaring the project configuration. Which is really exciting.

Google Cloud Platform 

The Google Cloud Platform is a set of modular cloud-based services that allow you to create anything from simple websites to complex applications.
