This Software Development Kit has been made accessible by Android Developers to make application development easier and more convenient while avoiding the need for the developer to face a rigid interface.


In order to develop an application on Android, the Android Developer can use several tools, one of the most popular being Eclipse. They then need to download the Java JDK 6 and the Android SDK tools. Usually he works within a team of programmers allowing him to carry out more ambitious projects.
