Android Studio vs Codenvy: What are the differences?

Android Studio: Android development environment based on IntelliJ IDEA. Android Studio is a new Android development environment based on IntelliJ IDEA. It provides new features and improvements over Eclipse ADT and will be the official Android IDE once it's ready; Codenvy: Cloud workspaces for development teams. Codenvy makes development more agile by providing workspaces that are on-demand, collaborative and constraint-free. Based on the open Eclipse Che project, Codenvy can be installed behind a corporate firewall, in a private cloud or as SaaS.

Android Studio and Codenvy are primarily classified as "Integrated Development Environment" and "Cloud IDE" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Android Studio are:

  • Flexible Gradle-based build system.
  • Build variants and multiple APK generation.
  • Expanded template support for Google Services and various device types.

On the other hand, Codenvy provides the following key features:

  • Portable Developer Workspaces
  • Multi-Tenant
  • Workspace as Code

"Android studio is a great tool, getting better and bet " is the top reason why over 164 developers like Android Studio, while over 99 developers mention "Anywhere coding" as the leading cause for choosing Codenvy.

Lyft, Zillow, and PedidosYa are some of the popular companies that use Android Studio, whereas Codenvy is used by eXo, Teaching Kids Programming, and Montemedia. Android Studio has a broader approval, being mentioned in 916 company stacks & 670 developers stacks; compared to Codenvy, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

Advice on Android Studio and Red Hat Codeready Workspaces

The problem I have is whether to choose Android Studio or Visual Studio? I have to develop a simple app for a school project that can work on both iPhone and Android.

The most important factors for me are Android and iOS compatibility. Although note that i would like to become a Software Engineer when i finish my course. (I'd like to work for Apple, just saying!)

After that id like easy integration for Google Ads and such if i do develop another app that people actually use to support development. (I'd also like to stick with one easy programming language that's compatible with a wide variety of platforms since i'm a beginner and have only ever used Pascal)

First of all - Android Studio and Visual Studio are IDE's. Tools to create code. What you are asking is programming framework. I assume that when you are talking about Android Studio you mean Native Android Development and by Visual Studio you mean Xamarin.

If you want to create crossplatform app then Native Android Development is NOT a way to go. Xamarin might work for you, BUT - you'd rather recommend you to go with Flutter. It's much more performant than Xamarin, programming model is friendlier for developer and technology seems just more refined. It's also officially supported by google, so no worries about support.
