Android Studio is a new IDE from Google apparently intended to try to make Android application development easier. However, there seems to be a few issues that get in the way. Two potential sources of headaches are:
- "Locked cache" error and
- Unable to install cradle
Two possible solutions:
- Start Android Studio as Administrator if using Windows. I have not tried starting it as root in Linux. It is not recommended to run applications as root in Linux.
- Set up the HTTP proxy server IP address and port in the File->Settings menu.
Google still needs a lot of work to simplify the interface. IntelliJ IDEA is still the simplest Android IDE in my experience. Eclipse ADT is getting close.
