Native app development on both the Android
platforms requires a set of essential tools and resources to streamline the development process and ensure the creation of high-quality applications. These tools provide developers with the necessary frameworks, software development kits (SDKs
), integrated development environments (IDEs
), and testing platforms to build, test, and deploy native apps.
For Android app development, Google provides the Android SDK
bundled with Android Studio, the official IDE for Android. This powerful combination offers a wide range of features and tools that enable developers to write code in languages such as Java, Kotlin, Scala
, or C++
. Additionally, Firebase, a comprehensive mobile development platform, can be utilized for various functionalities like cloud storage, authentication, and analytics. Android Jetpack is another valuable resource that offers pre-made Android components to simplify app development.
