ADT Bundle

A complete development environment for Android developers that comes with an integrated Android SDK, development tools and system image
ADT Bundle is a complete development package created by Google in order to help Android enthusiasts design impressive apps for the popular mobile platform. The suite sports all the tools you need for proceeding to building and testing applications, from the Eclipse IDE to JDK, the Android Developer Tools and the system image.

If you prefer using another integrated development environment, then you should download the Android SDK, a stripped down package that only includes the basic utilities, libraries and tools for creating Android apps.

The suite comes with an installed Android platform and its corresponding packages (the system image, support libraries and build tools). However, you can easily download extra SDK tools and platforms with the help of the Android SDK Manager application.

This simple utility provides you access to the most recent utilities, build tools, documentation, samples, APIs, source files, libraries, services and drivers, avoiding the download of a significantly large package that contain all the fixes and features which are added periodically.

While it requires an Internet connection, it enables you to download a platform, along with its corresponding development tools, providing support for older Android releases, from 1.1 to the latest. Thus, developers can build and test applications dedicated to older Android devices.

The officially supported Eclipse IDE relies on the installed components in order to help you create compelling Android apps. The built-in Android project creation wizard prompts you for selecting one of the available SDKs, compilers and themes, while the IDE enables you to test the newly created application on a real device and test its capabilities.

ADT Bundle features a complete set of utilities for Android app development. Designed mostly for less experienced developers, it can guide them throughout all the necessary steps, from downloading the required components to deploying the output on an Android handset.
