Introduction

If you're serious about developing for Andorid, or you just want to play around and see what app development is all about, Android Studio is the best option out there. It's the official IDE developed by Google for writing Android apps.

Google developed Android Studio for Ubuntu. Up until recently, Google did all of their development on Ubuntu. They just switched over to Debian, in case you were wondering. Either way, it's similar, so coding for Android on Ubuntu is a good idea.
