Developing Android Apps on Mac OS X

Ok, so I have a new Galaxy 551, which btw I rooted. (Have to use my parallel desktop to do that as it does not work on Mac even if I have mono installed). Click Read More to setup Android Development on OSX.



  1. So first step is to download eclipse. Since I do J2EE for other projects as well, I downloaded Eclipse for Java EE.
  2. After that, install eclipse.
  3. Download Android SDK from this site : http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
  4. After installing eclipse, go to Help -> Install New Software
  5. Add in this ADT site : https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/ . If you have issue using https, try http

  12. Click on OK.
  13. After installation, click on restart now.

Once you've successfully downloaded ADT as described above, the next step is to modify your ADT preferences in Eclipse to point to the Android SDK directory:

  1. Select Window > Preferences... to open the Preferences panel (Mac OS X: Eclipse > Preferences).
  2. Select Android from the left panel.
  3. For the SDK Location in the main panel, click Browse... and locate your downloaded SDK directory.
  4. Click Apply, then OK.
