Develop apps like a pro

Android SDK is a development tool that allows users to create, develop, and test apps for the given platform. It provides its users with all the needed tools for making mobile applications that will be compatible with the targeted operating system. All creations under Android SDK can also be tested using emulators to see if it is working properly and if it meets expectations before it is launched. 

A versatile software

The process may sound a little complicated at the start but first-time users have nothing to fear because Android SDK comes with a tutorial. The instructions will guide you on how to use the program until you can create applications smoothly on your own. Additionally, beginners can use an already existing sample project to familiarize themselves with how the software works. Android SDK is a very flexible software that can both be installed and used independently or partnered with the other tools that are included in the Android Studio Package. Emulators and other tool kits can also be used with Android SDK without a problem. Aside from being a tool for developing mobile apps, Android SDK is also capable of unlocking your device’s bootloader, which gives you more access to your operating system. This means you can tap on even the rooted applications that ordinary users cannot delete in their device. Of course, this also gives you the right to root apps on the OS.

Everything made simple

Android SDK makes it easy to develop apps by providing a very efficient way in making them. The program’s interface is organized and users simply have to tick on checkboxes corresponding to the tool kits and packages that are necessary in developing their apps.

The Open Handset Alliance, a group of more than 30 technology and mobile companies, is developing Android: the first complete, open, and free mobile platform. To help developers get started developing new applications, we're offering an early look at the Android Software Development Kit.

Key benefits of Android:


Android allows you to access core mobile device functionality through standard API calls.

Breaking down boundaries

Combine information from the web with data on the phone - such as contacts or geographic location -- to create new user experiences.

All applications are equal

Android does not differentiate between the phone's basic and third-party applications -- even the dialer or home screen can be replaced.

Fast and easy development

The SDK contains what you need to build and run Android applications, including a true device emulator and advanced debugging tools.
