Android Studio, the official IDE for Android app development, is a free, open-source, and cross-platform code editor developed by Google. First released in 2014 by Google, Android Studio quickly became the most popular code editor for Android app development. Built on JetBrains’ IntelliJ IDEA, Android Studio provides many powerful out-of-the-box features—such as smart autocomplete, easy navigation and search, and version control. Current versions of AndroidStudio ship with a Gradle build system, app design tools, and shortcuts for running and deploying Android apps with ease. Android Studio primarily supports Kotlin, Java, and C++. Here's how to get started:
- Visit the plugin marketplace for Android Studio plugins and search for Code Time. Click Get to download the Code Time plugin.
