Android Studio is the industry-standard software for developing Android Apps. In this tutorial, we will download Studio and other necessary software for creating your own apps.
Your first step is to check if you have Java already installed (must be version 7+). Open your command terminal, or cmd, and type “java –version” and enter.
The example below shows Java version 8.0_05 (version number is after the “1.”)
If you have Java 7 or higher, go to step 3!
Otherwise, continue to step 2.
2. Download the Java Development Kit
Download the Java Development Kit here:
Go to the first Java SE Development Kit block as shown in the picture below (Kit number may be different). Download the Mac JDK (highlighted in picture). Locate the file after downloading, and double click it to begin the installation process.
Once the JDK has finished downloading, go back to Step 1 and confirm that you have Java version 7 or higher installed.
Go to the url below and download Android Studio, after accepting the terms and conditions.
Double-click the file you downloaded and follow the prompts. Drag the Android Studio icon into your Applications folder.
