Install Android Studio (MAC)
Posted by Administrator on 17 September 2016 10:36 am

Setting up Android Studio takes just a few clicks.

While the Android Studio download completes, verify which version of the JDK you have: open a command line and typejavac -version. If the JDK is not available or the version is lower than 1.8, download the Java SE Development Kit 8.

There are, however, known stability issues in Android Studio on Mac when using JDK 1.8. Until these issues are resolved, you can improve stability by downgrading your JDK to an older version (but no lower than JDK 1.6).

To install Android Studio on your Mac, proceed as follows:

  1. Launch the Android Studio DMG file.
  2. Drag and drop Android Studio into the Applications folder, then launch Android Studio.
  3. Select whether you want to import previous Android Studio settings, then click OK.
  4. The Android Studio Setup Wizard guides you though the rest of the setup, which includes downloading Android SDK components that are required for development.

That's it! The following video shows each step of the recommended setup procedure.

As new tools and other APIs become available, Android Studio tells you with a pop-up, or you can check for updates by clicking Android Studio > Check for Updates.
