Chapter 5: A Bit About Eclipse > Alternative IDEs

Alternative IDEs

If you really like Eclipse and the ADT, you may want to consider MOTODEV Studio for Android. This is another set of add-ins for Eclipse, augmenting the ADT and offering a number of other Android-related development features, including the following (among many others):

  • More wizards for helping you create Android classes
  • Integrated SQLite browsing, so you can manipulate a SQLite database in your emulator right from your IDE
  • More validators to check for common bugs, and a library of code snippets to have fewer bugs at the outset
  • Assistance with translating your application to multiple languages

While MOTODEV Studio for Android is published by Motorola, you can use it to build applications for all Android devices, not only those manufactured by Motorola themselves. With Google's pending acquisition of Motorola, the future of MOTODEV will certainly be interesting.
