(Optional) Other IDEs for Developing Android Apps

We developed all the apps in this book using the Eclipse IDE. Though this is the most popular IDE for Android development, there are other IDEs and tools available. Many early Android developers preferred to work with the command-line tools and some phone vendors (such as Motorola) provide their own Android development tools. The site

developer.android.com/guide/developing/projects/
   projects-cmdline.html

includes information you’d need to develop Android apps using the command-line tools. Some of the tools for command-line development are summarized in (Fig. 7).
