Would Android Studio be okay for this?

Android Studio is still in beta testing at the moment and I could encounter some bugs, but would it still be okay for using this to build and run the Blog Reader app?

Hi Shane, Alternatively, you could try writing your code on the Workspace link provided in the video if you're worried about the existing bugs, but it should not affect your Blog Reader project. IntelliJ / Android Studio is the best tool for Android Development so far to be honest.

You may refer to this link to find out more about the IntelliJ IDE.

Best regards, Henry

Thanks Henry, but I figured it would be easier to just download a new copy of Eclipse straight from the Google Developer site rather than having to import and export my projects. Why I'm downloading a new copy of Eclipse, is because I had a problem updating the IDE so I figured I would just download a fresh copy of Eclipse.
