The IntelliJ IDEA platform helps to develop apps with rich user interfaces and ready-to-use templates. “Android Studio provides the fastest possible turnaround on coding, running workflow, and enables developers to add the latest features with ease that enhance productivity and create responsive user-centric apps” says GoodFirms. Google provides an open system allowing developers to easily report the development issues and quickly send feedback.
