Hi,

I've just started developing with Android Studio. Testing code using either the emulator or a real device is slow, and it seems to me that it would be better to have a fast GUI whilst working on the main code; and I was wondering what would be the best way to organize this? Can I install an API like Swing in Android Studio or should I use a separate installation of Standard Eclipse?

Thanks,

Ste.

What do you mean by "alternative API"? What should this API do? Swing is not supported in Android. And my understanding is that Android Studio is now the most advanced Android IDE, so I would not expect that using Eclipse would make things better in general.

Thanks for the reply.

With Android Studio I seems that I'm stuck using the emulator or a connected device to test my programs with. But I don't need to test the code on a device until much further into the coding process. What I want is a quick and simple way to output results, and do a bit of interaction via a button maybe, using a more standard interface. I've done most of my programming in Delphi so far, so ideally I would like a Delphi-like form to work with until I need to test on an actual Android device.
