    "Android Studio is not a great tool for Android development in Java. First of all, it's difficult to use and takes too long to learn. Second, there are not as many useful features as other options. Third, it does not work well with my computer and seems to have bugs that need to be fixed. I don't recommend this at all."

    "Makes it really easy to build an Android app if you've got a background in that kind of thing, but don't expect to be able to handle it without any training. It's still pretty complicated but at least it has some extra bells and whistles to get you on your way."
