In part 1 of this series we discussed how to integrate the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android with Android Studio. The post stepped through the process of manually setting up a single project in Android Studio. Today, the ArcGIS Android developer team is proud to announce an Early Access Preview (EAP) release of ArcGIS Android Gradle samples. The samples are open source and can be forked from Github. Android Studio development environment is now in Beta and will be the official Android IDE once it’s ready. We encourage you to collaborate with us working with the new Gradle based Android project structure. Be aware that this is an EAP and if you are not comfortable using an unfinished product, you may want to use ArcGIS Android Samples in the Eclipse Plugin bundled with the ArcGIS Android SDK.
