Android Studio Tips

The Android world is split in their choice between Eclipse and Android Studio as the preferred IDE. The momentum is definitely with Android Studio and in most of my talks this year, I have tried to push that message across to the developers that they need to start getting familiar with Android Studio. Yes, there would be bugs in Android Studio but get into the game while it is early.
