eclipse-to-android-studio

Android developers have used Eclipse for years. Now Android Studio is considered “the official Android IDE” (Integrated Development Environment.) But what if you have an app that you created in Eclipse or what if you just bought a template at Chupamobile? Is it difficult to import these into Android Studio? What are some of the pitfalls?

The short answer is that it is easier than you probably think, but there are a few things to watch out for.  Let’s walk through an example.  First, if you have not yet installed Android Studio, click here before continuing with this tutorial.

File Formats

The first question for some may be whether you need to create Gradle build files in Eclipse and then import that into Android Studio. The short answer is that you can, but it is not necessary. Eclipse does allow you to build files using Gradle but it can create issues, mostly around versioning.  And with the Production version of Android Studio, I do not see a compelling reason to deal with this.  For this article, I assume you have a set of Java and XML files structured in typical Eclipse fashion somewhere on your computer.

Android Studio cannot import from a ZIP file, so extract any ZIPped projects before attempting an import.

And for this exercise, I use a Windows 8 PC.

1. Open Android Studio

When you open Android Studio, you are presented with several options in a Quick Start screen.

Android_studio_welcome_screen2

2. Select the Fifth Option

Click the fifth option on the Quick Start.  It will say “Import Non-Android Studio project” or “Import project (Eclipse ADT, Gradle, etc.)” depending upon your version of Android Studio.

3. Navigate to Your App

Navigate to the top level folder of your app and select it.

select eclipse or gradle project to import

4. Choose Destination Folder

When you select the app, you are informed that Android Studio makes a copy of it and does not alter the original. Click the button with three dots if you want the files saved to a location other than what Android Studio has selected. Once you are happy, choose “Next.” If the folder does not exist, you are asked if you would like it created. Click “OK” of course.

5. Import Options

At this point, you are informed that Android Studio can/will make some changes to your files. Android Studio makes a lot of changes to your code structure behind the scenes. Part of those changes is the replacement of some Jars and library sources with dependencies. In most cases, you will leave these checked.  These dependencies have the net effect of reducing the size of your app.

Android Studio also asks if you would like to change module names.  I’ve found no reason to uncheck this box.

Press Next.

6. Warnings (Skip If Not Applicable to You)

Each time I imported a project, I have received a Warning screen. My warning let me know that a library that I use could not be found. But the IDE has identified an alternate path that will be resolved to. Great! My warnings also indicate that a full import report will be presented to me at a later stage and there is not much I can do to change things anyway at this point, so I proceed by clicking Finish.

import-project-from-adt-eclipse-android-warnings

7. Unrecoverable errors (Skip If Not Applicable to You)

My next screen is less benign.  I am told there are unrecoverable errors which must be corrected. It was a common problem relating to resolving project paths. With a little guidance from Google and Stack Overflow, I was able to find a resolution to my issue and then re-attempt the import.

8. Import Summary Report

Read over the Import Summary. It will help you understand more about Android Studio in general and what is going on with your app in particular.

9. Build | Make Project

Now select “Build” from the menu and then “Make Project” from the drop down.  This might take a minute or two, but then… your import is complete! You can now work on your code or run your app in an emulator or device.  Congratulations.

Once you are in Android Studio, you can easily import another app by selecting “File” from the menu at the top, then choosing “Import Project.”  You will also see an option called “Import Module.” There are diatribes online about the difference between a Project and a Module. I think the easiest way to think of them is that a Project is a stand-alone item, whereas a Module is a library or a part of a bigger entity.  So, if you want to import an app, go with “Import Project.”

You and I both have a lot more to learn about Android Studio. Stay tuned for more information on accomplishing certain tasks.  And please use the Comments below to ask questions or share your experience with others.

why-we-cant-live-without-mobile-apps

Apps have become a big part of our mobile world . The average person has around 10-15 apps on their smartphone or mobile device (-> Tweet this!) at any given time ranging from business related syncing apps and scanners, to addictive game apps that can be played anywhere and everywhere from the palm of your hand to diet and quit smoking support apps.

Aside from the need to obsessively check our Facebook or Twitter accounts from our mobile devices, apps have catapulted from engaging games and programs to fiddle with on your smartphone or mobile device in your spare time to a necessary staple to conduct business with.

The majority of the population has at least one mobile device loaded with a variety of different apps that in most cases are being used on a daily basis.

Recently it seems that we can’t get through even one day without hearing about a new app that’s afforded thousands and in some cases millions of downloads in virtually no amount of time at all.

Why didn’t I think of that?

If you have come across an app with such a seemingly simple concept that you want to kick yourself for not coming up with it, you are not the only one. Sometimes the simplest ideas end up being the next viral sensation (-> Tweet this!).

The Dubsmash app, for example, was about the most basic concept of a fun and amusing way to communicate, but the millions of downloads say that this was nothing short of brilliant. Angry Birds sounds like a pretty primitive game on paper, but in reality everyone seems to have or know someone who has this game app.

dubsmash

The creators of these apps are now millionaires as a result of developing these engaging, fun and even life-simplifying apps. Do you have a great app idea? If so, you should be striking while the irons hot before someone else swoops in and reaps the rewards.

Can anyone develop an app?

Yes! Developing an app was once thought to be an endeavor exclusively available to experienced programmers and coders, but today literally anyone with an idea and a tad of imagination can develop an app worthy to stand against any of the current heavy hitter apps out there.

dubsfun

Now, you can launch your own Dubsmash app in just a few hours

There are many companies that offer easy to use app and game templates for people with limited to no design or coding skills to make their app ideas a reality such as Chupamobile. With a host of different templates, Chupamobile provides all the help you need to achieve app development success!

Improve an existing app

Just because someone has already come up with your app idea doesn’t mean that you can’t build on or improve it. There are few apps available today that are entirely unique. Is there an app on your mobile device right now that you can’t live without but wish it had certain lacking features? Build your own similar one! If you see flaws in an app you are using then chances are others feel the same way. Will your app be the next big thing? With the right resources and a little bit of good advertising, it could well be!
