One of the awesome things about being an Android developer is just how accessible it is, in terms of how easy it is to get started and how easy it is to distribute apps to users. To me, it feels like a return to the days of the ZX Spectrum; where you didn’t need a large development team in order to make money with new games and software. Like older hardware, mobile devices ensure that anyone with a good idea working from their Mum’s basement can take the world by storm.

But before there was Android and the Play Store, there was iOS and the App Store. It was really the iPhone that kicked off the mobile app ‘goldrush’. So in many ways, we have Apple to thank for this opportunity. But the question is: which is the best option today for a new developer trying to make a splash?

Let’s start with how you actually go about creating an app for either Android or iOS. In both cases, you’re going to have a lot of documentation and support to help you out, which is a good start. But at the same time, both platforms have tons of options, various different elements and a lot to get your head around before you can really dive in.

We have just released Android Studio 2.4 Preview 1 to the Canary and Dev Channels. This is an early build, so expect more updates over the coming weeks.

We just published ConstraintLayout 1.0.2. As always, it's available in the SDK Manager (under the "Support Repository" section). We recommend to update to this version.
Note : with Android Studio 2.3 being released , we strongly encourage people to switch to it for editing layouts (ConstraintLayout included). Many improvements have been made since 2.2, providing a smoother experience.
Changes:

  • fixed wrap content issues if specifying padding on the ConstraintLayout component
  • handles programmatic setId() calls on ConstraintLayout component correctly
