Android SDK is an official development package that users can customize, debug, optimize and coding Android applications from scratch and utilize the full capabilities of the entire android hardware and software ecosystem, that includes testing, profiling, and compiling newer Android applications and is popular among many developers from all around the world. You can also use Android SDK for fixing compatibility issues for hardware and change system images and applying optimization for applications made to run on Android devices with a large and supportive community that developers can make the project run smoothly with tutorials and general help and it provides a copy of android platform source code, which make the debugging process much easier to handle and working on codes with more flexibility.
Features of Android SDK
This software package contains all the necessary tools for debugging and developing your applications. These tools fully support the newest features of the Android platform and are updated once the new platform becomes fully available and facilitates a smoother development process that includes many elements like security enhancements, running embedded DEX code directly from APK, and tools that have backward compatibility support with older platforms.
Optimized API compatibility
Creators of Android SDK have improved the overall functions of API that makes it very easier to help you migrate from Google Maps Android API like the separated MapView and the MapboxMap objects. Users can easily port their apps from Google Maps with less code. Testing of your activities and fragments are easier and more responsive thanks to the contemporary nature of the MapboxMap.
Android SDK gives you full control over the elements of your user interface that show up in other apps. Allowing the user to witness how much their apps integrate with other apps and how does it look and making sure that the most important functions remain safe from being tampered with.
Build tools and system images
SDK build tools are primarily used for building the main binaries of your android app. Android SDK offers multiple different images for ARM and x86. The Android emulator needs a system image to function and testing of components such as systrace, Android Debug Bridge, and Fastboot for debugging app performance.
