There are many tools available for Android app development. The most popular ones are Kotlin, Java, C++ and Android Studio. Kotlin is a statically typed programming language that operates on the Java Virtual Machine and may be converted to JavaScript source code or runtime native binaries. JetBrains created Kotlin in 2011, a language that is open-source and cross-platform compatible with both iOS and MacOS devices.

Some of the Android app development tools:


Kotlin is a statically typed programming language that may be turned into JavaScript source code via the LLVM compiler infrastructure. It operates on the Java virtual machine.


James Gosling created the Java programming language at Sun Microsystems, and it was launched in 1995 as a major component of Sun Microsystems' Java platform. The language derives much of its syntax from C and C++ but has a simpler object model and fewer low-level facilities. Other major similarities to C include garbage collection, a strict typing discipline, and an exceptionally large set of standard libraries.


C++ is a general-purpose programming language, having been developed by Bjarne Stroustrup and his team at Bell Labs. C++ is a compiled language and supports procedural, object oriented and generic programming. It has its roots in C, but includes many new features inspired by Modula-2 and Algol 68.

Because C++ has such flexibility it's important to understand how that flexibility can affect your codebase so that you can design code which minimizes complexity while still supporting performance.

         Android Studio

Android Studio is the IDE that Google recommends to developers who want to build Android apps. It's built on IntelliJ IDEA and supports both Java and Kotlin, which are two popular programming languages for Android development.

You can also use Android Studio to develop apps for other platforms like iOS, macOS, Linux, or Chrome OS.

         Gradle & Maven

-A build tool compiles your code into an executable format (such as Java bytecode), which makes it easier for other programs to understand. Your code will typically be compiled when you run tests or deploy your app on a device.

-The most popular build tools are Maven and Gradle鈥攖hey both do similar things but have some key differences between them.


XML stands for Extensible Markup Language, and it is a markup language that is designed to store data in a structured way. XML is used to describe data in a machine-readable way, such as on the Internet or intranet.

XML has been in existence since 1998 and has become one of the most common ways to structure data on the web today.

         IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition

IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition is a lightweight and powerful IDE for Java, Groovy and other programming languages. It is available for free for individual developers, open-source projects and educational institutions.


Android is an extremely popular platform for app development, and it's not just because of the substantial number of devices that support it. Android is also easy to learn and use, as well as being powerful enough to handle complex apps or games without much issue.
