Topic 2: "Why you should probably be using Android Studio"
At the last couple meetups, there's been some informal discussion about the merits and faults of Android Studio. This presentation is a continuation of that discussion. I'll be showing off some of the cool features of Android Studio and I'll try to show how Android Studio relieves us of certain pain points that come along with Android Development. I'll also address some hurdles that might arise when trying to move your projects over to Android Studio.

    Matt... any chance that you could create a list of those shortcuts that you showed us in Android Studio? I'm trying to remember the one that automatically rewrites your catch statements correctly... :)

      Arrgh!... for some reason some of my keyboard shortcuts are not working! alt+enter doesn't do anything. Any idea? I haven't changed any settings since installing so it's a basic setup.
