I am currently using Eclipse 3.5.0 for Android development. But I just wanted to try Android development in some IDE other than Eclipse.
Firstly, am I going on the right track or is Android development possible only on Eclipse? Secondly, if there are options other than eclipse, what are they and in what way are they better or worse than Eclipse? How to install Android SDK on them? A tutorial for working with that IDE with be really helpful.
Android development possible only on
No it is possible in other IDE also
Personally I prefer the IntelliJ. I was a big fan of Eclipse but when I started using IntelliJ (with some learning curve), I just love it ! The community edition now offers support for Android SDK. However, unfortunately there is no support for building UIs ! So, my solution for now is to configure IntelliJ projects with Android libraries, use Eclipse as a UI builder tool and then use those XML files in INtellJ. I know its a painful process but that is how I get the best of both worlds !
