AIDE is an integrated development environment (IDE) for developing real Android apps directly on your Android device.

Follow interactive coding lessons and step-by-step become an expert app developer.

Visually design apps, write code with the feature-rich editor with code completion, real-time error checking, refactoring,

and smart code navigation, run your app with a single click, and use the Java debugger to find bugs.

App features interactive lessons with step-by-step instructions to learn Android app development and Java programming skills.

Follow the lessons, become an expert and apply what you’ve learned in your own app projects.

AIDE will turn your Android tablet with a keyboard into a real development box. The app will turn your Android Phone into a small development computer to browse and touch your code on the go.

AIDE supports building apps with Java/XML and the Android SDK, apps with C/C++ and the Android NDK as well as pure Java console applications.

The app is fully compatible with Eclipse projects. You can just copy the source code to your device and open the Eclipse project in AIDE to start coding.


Alternatively, you can keep your source code on your Dropbox – AIDE integrates with Dropbox and allows you to easily download from your Dropbox and sync back your changes.

AIDE can also open Android Studio projects, which follow the default folder structure. AIDE also supports Git for professional development.

Purchasing AIDE Prime, the AIDE Premium Key, the debugger, or the UI designer disables all ads in the app.
