Almost all the UI development on Android I've done has been changing XML files manually. This can get pretty limiting quickly. The graphical view seems to be broken except for the most basic UI because what shows up on the device/emulator is different from what shows up there.

Has anyone here used good tools out there to make UI development in Android less of a pain?

Thanks,

How is the graphical view broken? Can you show an example?

The UI designers are just very awkward to use. I think after you use it a while, the awkwardness becomes something you get used to and you find ways to get the UI you want. But it does take practice.
