Using Other Android Tools
Although we've already covered the most important tools, a number of other special-purpose utilities are included with the Android SDK:
- Android Hierarchy Viewer—Allows developers to inspect application user interface components such as View Properties while the application is running.
- Draw 9-Patch tool—Helps developers design stretchable PNG files.
- AIDL Compiler—Helps developers create remote interfaces to facilitate interprocess communication (IPC) on the Android platform.
- mksdcard command-line utility—Allows developers to create stand-alone SD card images for use within AVDs and the emulator.
