However, now things are going to get rapider, superior quality and just better than never before.
Features to note:
“Instant Run” enables you to immediately see how different changes in the code impact your currently running app. There is no need to re-compile or reinstall the APK. It will help you to maintain a fast and fluid flow of development. It will also enhance productivity of developers by speeding up your edit, build as well as run cycle- according to Google.
There is also the Android Emulator which runs three times speedier than the old version by taking advantage of multi-core CPUs. The sensors control and brand new User interface will help you to adjust an application by enabling you to spin the screen, drag-and-drop for the installation of applications as well as utilize multi-touch controls (i.e. pan, rotate, pinch and zoom).

There are number of reasons why Android Studio is a step ahead of Eclipse:
- User Interface
- Advanced Code Completion
- Different Modules to Organize project
- System stability
- Quickly growing Gradle build system
Android Studio 2.0 is the speediest approach to assemble top notch applications for the Android platform including smart phones, tablets, Android Auto, Android wear as well as Android TV. As the official IDE from Google Android Studio incorporates all that you need to make an application, such as a code editor, tools for code analysis, emulators and many more. This fresh and steady version of Android Studio comprises high-speed and a fast emulator to support latest Android version as well as Google Play Services.
