Hello all,

I just want to get your feedback on the Mobile Development ... I've been suggesting to use IntellJ for mobile development.

I'm currently using Eclipse for the development ... if you have any experience with IntellJ ... or any comparision I would like to hear your input and which one would you suggest that would be ideal for Android development.

thanks

If intelliJ is in the list of options, then resistance is futile.

I don't have any hands on experience on either of them, however I've seen (on the internet) people favoring more to Intellij over Eclipse.

One warning though:
the last time I checked intelliJ + android, it had no GUI editor. It has a GUI visualisor (so you can write the xml and then visualize it), but no drag and drop which eclipse does have.

I think Google Officially support Eclipse. And it is open-source too. Not like community edition of Intellij. But I'm not sure which is best for mobile web applications.

I've tried out Intellij and I have to say that is great for android native development. As other users says, it doesn't have a drag and drop GUI editor. Also I don't use the GUI editor that eclipse integrates, it's totally annoying how bad it works and makes me keep switching between the XML perspective and the drag and drop perspective.

The only thing I complain about Intellij Idea is the editor. I'm used to work with netbeans/visual studio/eclipse and I feel the differences between the four.
