Hope you all are doing well, first of all, thank you so much for reading my previous articles:
And thank you so much for guiding me for writing more and more through your nice comments.
 
I know you all are curious about today’s article.
 
Today we will learn about the Tools and Platforms for Android Application Development, that what type of tools are used and on which platform you can install them to run your Android Application programs, on which tool you can develop android applications. I will explain all this in the article. Let’s begin!
 
We all know Android supports Java, C#, C++, etc. languages to develop applications. Commonly we use java language for developing applications on Android because it is an officially supported language.
 
Android supports many operating systems, such as you can start your programming or development of android applications in either of the following operating systems:  
  • Microsoft Windows XP or later Versions like Windows 7,8,8.1,10
  • Mac OS X or later versions With Intel Chip.
  • Linux Operating Systems
  • Unix Operating Systems
These are the software that you need to be installed in your system before you start your Android application development:
Firstly, start with installing java in your system, for that you have to install JDK 7 .exe file to install java in your system. The website tells you the instruction on how to install and for which system with how to configure it.
  1. After that you have to set the PATH of java for your system, for this, you can follow these easy steps in your system (I am telling here for Microsoft Windows 10 or earlier versions).
Now Java is integrated into your system, now you can install SDK tools and Android studio on your system and start programming on Android Studio.
