What a great list. Definitely thanks for sharing such info, it's useful for me as a developer.

Of course If you're going to become an app developer and code like a pro, you need to dive into the number of important Android development tools. I would mention Firebase .
In its turn, it offers various tools for your app development such as realtime database, analytics, remote configuration (great, helps you change your app settings on the go), as well as crash reporting (you can see all crashes that happen in your app), test lab (though limited for free usage) and cloud storage(possible to store videos. images here and get a downloadable link which you can use in your app to download things). To me - impressive.

And on the whole, some more tools and the overall approach to android apps development are mentioned hereIt would be nice if you look into it

I think App Inventor is the fastest way to build apps for Android phones and tablets.

Android Studio
No list of Android development tools would be complete without Android Studio. This is the official IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for Android, making it the number one choice for the majority of developers looking to make basic apps in-keeping with Google’s Material Design and with access to all the advanced features of the platform.

AVD Manager
The AVD Manager tool is bundled with Android Studio. AVD stands for ‘Android Virtual Device’, so essentially this is an emulator for running Android applications on your PC. This is useful because it means that you can test your apps quickly without having to constantly install them on physical devices. More importantly, the AVD Manager allows you to create lots of different emulators with different screen sizes, specifications and versions of Android. This means you can see what your creation will look like on any given device and thereby ensure support across the most popular gadgets.

Unity 3D
Unity 3D is the first of our recommended tools that doesn’t come pre-installed with Android Studio. It is a game engine and IDE for cross-platform game development. Unity is easy to learn and comes with a large variety of features for game development. While it’s possible to create a game with Android Studio, Unity lends itself to that kind of work much more readily and will save you considerable amounts of time and headache. You can even use it to create virtual reality apps for Daydream, Cardboard or the Gear

Challenges For Mobile App Development

Platform selection -

In the development of mobile app prototype, the crucial yet influential thing is the selection of the platform among the native and cross-platform. Both the platforms have their pros and cons. Once the platform for prototype development is decided it eases the further process.

For those who don't have any idea about app development, I would suggest them to get it done from Branex because recently I got one done for one of my clients, and they did a great job!

An AngularJS application works fine on desktop, but is not rendering properly on mobile (actual code is showing). This is on an Android phone.
I would like to see what errors are showing in the console.
