Android SDK Pricing


Android SDK Overview:

Android SDK is the software development kit for developers who want to build applications for Android platform devices. The kit contains all the tools that a developer would require to create, test and debug their Android apps.

Android SDK is open-source, easy to install and use, and is compatible with all operating systems (Linux, Windows, and Mac OS).

Android SDK Pricing & Products:

Because the software is open-source, the Android SDK Pricing is a freeware model, meaning that it is completely free to download and use.

Applications that are developed through Android ADK are programmed using Java and run on Dalvik, which functions on top of a Linux kernel.

There are a number of different modular packages available, which can be downloaded separately utilizing the Android SDK Manager. These are the main modules:
