Eclipse couldn't challenge Android Studio (AS) as it was designed differently at different times. App developers can use Eclipse for distinctive app development platforms or a group of different programming languages, but it couldn't adapt absolutely to the world of Android app development.

Android Studio is specific for Android only, which makes it superior in comparison with Eclipse. Hence, AS could be the best choice for the android app development, also, as you have penned up in your thread about application components; they should be clearly defined and adequately planned.

Mastering the language: XML and Java are the two most vital languages which are used
for creating Android apps. So a strong knowledge of these two languages are very vital for
developing applications in Android platform.
There are some fundamentals for Java programming language which are given below:

  •  Inheritance and interfaces

  •  Packages

  •  Objects and classes

  •  Concurrency

  •  Collections

  •  Strings and numbers, generics

Familiarity with appropriate development environment and tools: Before starting with
your app development, it is very vital that you should make yourself familiarize with the
build automation tools along with the integrated development environment. For the tools

Apache Maven which serve as strong tools you can seamlessly manage your builds.

Awareness over Android applications, fragmentations, threads, tasks and loaders:
The market for Android is segregated with multiple operating systems and devices. So, if
your devices supports multiple versions, then it will incur more testing, maintenance and

Android apps can be made utilizing Kotlin, Java, and C++ languages. The Android SDK tools manage your code beside any information and asset documents into an APK, an Android package, which is a chronicle record with a .apk suffix. One APK document includes every one of the elements of an Android application and is the file that Android-powered gadgets use to introduce the application.

  • The Android operating system is a multi-user Linux system in which each app is a different user. By default, the system assigns each app a unique Linux user ID. The system sets permits for all the files in an app so that only the user ID assigned to that app can access them.

  • The Android system executes the principle of least privilege. That is, each app, by default, has access only to the components that it requires to do its work and no more. This creates a very safe environment in which an app cannot access parts of the system for which it is not given permission. However, there are ways for an app to share data with other apps and for an app to access system services: It’s possible to arrange for two apps to share the same Linux user ID, in which case they can access each other's files. To conserve system resources, apps with the same user ID can also arrange to run in the same Linux process and share the same VM. The apps must also be signed with the same certificate.

  • An app can request permission to access device data such as the device's location, camera, and Bluetooth connection. The user has to explicitly grant these permissions.

Sure, here are the Top 3 Fundamentals for Android App Development:

1. Java or Kotlin Programming
To start with Android app development, you must have a strong foundation in either Java or Kotlin programming language. These two languages are commonly used for Android app development, and having a good understanding of at least one of them is crucial.

2. Android SDK and Android Studio
Android Software Development Kit (SDK) and Android Studio are the two main tools that developers use to build Android apps. The SDK includes a set of libraries and tools for creating Android apps, while Android Studio is the official Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Android development. You must learn how to use both these tools to build and test your apps.

3. User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX)
Creating a visually appealing and intuitive UI/UX is crucial for the success of any app. You must learn the basics of UI/UX design principles, including how to create layouts, use widgets, and implement animations. You can also use various UI/UX design tools like Sketch, Adobe XD, or Figma to create your app's design.

Overall, mastering these three fundamentals of Android app development will set you up for success in creating high-quality, functional, and user-friendly apps.
