Android Studio or Eclipse?

The build a simple app course in the Android track uses Android Studio, but the build a blog reader app uses Eclipse. Will there be added courses that use Android Studio in the future? Or should I make the switch over to Eclipse?

Eclipse is old. Android Studio is the direction android development is heading. Android courses in the future will use Android Studio. If I were you, I would try and do the old videos that use eclipse using android studio. Im not sure how easy that will be as I havent tried it. But it would probably be better to try and use android studio if possible.

You should use whatever IDE/editor you are more comfortable in. I use Sublime Text due to it's simplicity, package control, and code building: http://www.sublimetext.com/.

It doesn't matter what you use, as long as you know how to use it. The editors are purely a personal preference.
