Android Studio is the official Integrated Development Environment (IDE) recommended by Google for Android application development, based on IntelliJ IDEA

Download Android Studio

Before installing it, you need to download the latest version of this software  (Always prefer latest version because fixes bugs etc)

If you are installing this higher than 2.3, then you need not install the JDK(Java Development Kit)
