Breaking Android Broken Down

Android Studio

Android Studio version 1.0 is finally ready for developers everywhere. Android Studio is supposed to make it way easier for developers to get their Android apps created, and distributed out to users.

Android Studio brings a bunch of new features, including intelligent code editing, user interface design tools, performance analysis and more. All great stuff to help improve the development workflow. For more information, check out this post on the Android Developers Blog.

Tauri 88

Next up, in the world of silly overpriced Android devices, Lamborghini announces the Tauri 88, a $6,000 Android phone. Usually when we see this level of luxury in Android devices, they are all bling and no sting. This one has some decently respectable specs, but again, at the end of the day, it’s a $6,000 Android phone.

Android Wear

Last up we have a massive Android wear update. Cult of Android reports Google will be rolling this out in the next week or so. It’ll have a bunch of cool new APIs that let the custom watch faces access weather, your calendar appointments, data from various sensors inside your watch and even data from specific apps.

That’s going to do it for this episode of Breaking Android. Follow me on your favorite social network and say hello. Also make sure to check out our weekly Android long-form podcast over at
