Link: IntelliJ IDEA is the base for Android Studio

May 16, 2013   #jetbrains  #android  #development 

We are happy to confirm that Android Studio, the new IDE for Android development that Google is developing in cooperation with JetBrains, is based on the IntelliJ Platform and the existing functionality of IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition.

JetBrains is one of the best developer tools companies out there IMO. I have happily paid for PHPStorm and RubyMine out of my own pocket as the apps are just worth it.

Congrats to the JetBrains team and Android developers everywhere. You no longer have to use Eclipse!
