5 Best Tools to Develop Android Apps



Android Developer tools or ADT is father of all in fact it is plugin for Eclipse IDE that provides a suite of tools that are integrated with Eclipse. It can save lot of time of any developer. It provides GUI access to many command line SDK tools and UI esign tools that help in prototyping design and build the app.
Android SDK

Without SDK it seems impossible to develop any app. You can be a game developer or other general app creator, you will need Android SDK. You will get all libraries, debugger, handset emulator, documentation help, tutorials for development and more. Also note that this tool is compatible with Windows, Linux and other OS too.

HyperNext Android creator

This is for all the newbies who have the potential to build great app but being new in the field lack confidence of experience. This one is must for all budding developers as using HyperNext even with comparatively less technical knowledge you can do wonders in Android development. It is based on HyperCard's HyperTalk language and uses HyperNext programming language.  It is best suited for all mobile phone apps that allow single window operation.

App Inventor for Android

When we are talking about Android development then how can we forget about what Google provides? App inventor though maintained by Massachusetts Institute of Technology was initially developed by Google to support developers who wanted to create powerful mobile apps for Android OS. Best part is that it uses various programs and hardware present in the Android device such as accelerometer and orientation data, speech-to-text conversion, contact data, phone functions, persistent storage, text messaging, GPS, and Web services as well for development. So it is always a good idea to have something like this which is already quite close to the development environment.

Native Development Kit

If you like C/C++ programming for smart phones then you can use NDK. One feature which I admire much is that it very well integrates with Android SDK. Though there are some limitations when we talk about variety of apps but NDK surely helps in compilation of libraries written in C and other languages to ARM or x86 native code.

I know when we talk about a free open source like Android then 5 is a little number but in any case we need to take those initial few steps to cover those hundreds of steps before our destination. So this post is to help you to take those initial steps. Future is bright and we will witness some interesting, creative developments for sure.
