The ADT Bundle provides everything you need to start developing apps, including a version of the Eclipse IDE with built-in ADT (Android Developer Tools) to streamline your Android app development. If you haven’t already, go download the Android ADT Bundle.

Install the SDK and Eclipse IDE

  1. Unpack the ZIP file (named and save it to an appropriate location, such as a “Development” directory in your home directory. You can also rename the folder “android” if you like.
  2. Open the adt-bundle-/eclipse/ directory and launch eclipse.

Brew Install

      Even easier is installing via brew.
      brew install android-sdk

That’s it! The IDE is already loaded with the Android Developer Tools plugin and the SDK is ready to go.
