  3. Will somoen tell me how powerful a laptop need to be? As the minimum requirements online do not discuss CPU and GPU; so how powerful does an programming laptop need to be?

  4. @android … I am a mobile web app developer …. please make tutorials on how to simply use Android studio to launch an index.html file on an emulated device …. there is thousands of us and we never get decent video tutorials on how to make the best use out of Android studio to make progressive web apps.

  5. I started making an app this year and it still isn't finished .I am constantly bombarded by bugs .I started out with lots of enthusiasm now I feel at a stand still and hardly keep concentrating and started to forget basic Java and android concepts .Don't know what to do.

  6. Do you have to pay uploading apps on the appstore? And is there any way you can upload your app to your phone , not just to check if it works ( with USB-debugging) but permenantly ?

  7. Come on Google, you made Android Studio. There are hundreds of new people who want to be developers who don't know where to start. Can't you make a tutorial series?

  8. Good to know. I, someone running windows, will specifically download the Mac Java SE Development Kit because the tutorial completely forgot there are other operating systems on the market.

  9. Thanks for the Video clip! Excuse me for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you considered – Chiveard Creating Empire Framework (google it)? It is a smashing one off product for learning how to create and develop your own android app minus the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my BF finally got amazing results with it.

  10. This was the most complicated crap I've seen in years. I just want to run the fucking emulator don't give a shit about anything else.

  11. why google makes everything so complex, I think I need a lifetime just to install android studio 3.0 on my windows 10, and doing some research on sdk, searching for ways to find "HOW TO DOWNLOAD ANDROID SDK" "WHERE TO DOWNLOAD ANDROID SDK" "WHY PROXY IS GOING TO DEFAULT SETTINGS EVEN THOUGH I ENTER ALL THE DETAILS IT NEEDS" "WHY THE HELL GOOGLE REMOVED SDK FROM INSTALLER???????"

  12. i get this error
