Being More Productive With Android Studio - Part Two

We all know how to develop good applications using Android Studio and we are pretty happy with what we are doing. But what if those things can be done with less effort? We all are habituated to using the mouse in our day-to-day life but sometimes knowingly or unknowingly, it increases our efforts as well as development time.

We have already seen some Android Studio shortcuts in my earlier post.
