Android Studio v0.1 - Yay, Google is co-operating with Jetbrains!

This is great news for all of us that prefer IntelliJ over Eclipse!

Jetbrains posted a little blogpost here about Android Studio and that it's based on the IntelliJ platform.
Just installed Android Studio and it looks exacly like IntelliJ IDEA. (Their Darcula theme is included.) Haven't played much with it yet as i had to write this to express my joy!

Opening Android projects created in IntelliJ worked without a hassle, had to re-specify the Android SDK but that's all.

The xml editor have gotten a little preview facelift, and ListViews now displays rows so you can see how it behaves, it also imports your "@string/"'s automatically in the XML, got fooled at first, thought i didn't hardcode that text.

It's nice to have the latest Android support in what probably will become my favorite IDE for Android! No more external linking to monitor.bat when they changed it in the SDK, etc.

Device selection forked, needs a bit more width, time to play around with it!

Download Android Studio v0.1 - HERE !
