Installing Android Studio

Setting up the android development environment is probably the most challenging part. It takes times - from 30 minutes to n hours to forever - depending on your internet speed, your programming knowledge, and your PC. You probably need a fairly decent PC (with 8GB RAM) and 10GB of free disk space to run the Android emulator. Running on "actual" Android phone/tablet requires much lesser resources.

Android Studio is Google's officially supported IDE for developing Android apps. This IDE is based on IntelliJ IDEA, which offers a powerful code editor and developer tools.
