Android Studio is the new IDE for coding Android apps. It is still in beta. Google is recommending this over Eclipse with ADT plugin. Installing Android Studio is fairly simple. Go to downloads page – https://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/studio.html. This page will automatically detect your OS and show you correct package to download. Accept the terms and download the dmg file. Double click the downloaded file and then drag the Android Studio logo to Application directory.
Now double click the Android studio logo to open it. On Mac OS X Mavericks you will notice that you see an error –
To open “Android Studio,” you need a Java SE 6 runtime. Would you like to install one now?
If you don’t want to install Java 6 you can click Not Now button.

Eclipse recently launched new version of its IDE – Luna. Luna comes with official support for Java 8. Installing Eclipse on Mac OS X is fairly simple. Go to eclipse download page. Download should automatically detect your OS and show you correct package according to your OS. Download the package which suits according to your need. Extract the downloaded file to get a directory named “eclipse”. In this directory there should be an executable called Eclipse. Double click this to start eclipse.
In Mac OS X Mavericks when I tried to start eclipse I got this error:
The JVM shared library “/Library/Third Party Plugins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/…/lib/server/libjvm.dylib” does not contain the JNI_CreateJavaVM symbol.
SOLUTION: To solve this issue righ click on Eclipse executable and click “Show Package Contents” as shown here:

Insert this line (replace * with correct version number). Also note that this is all in one line.
Save and close this Info.plist file. Try to reopen Eclipse and it should work fine.
