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.
