Hello, Simon here – your friendly developer advocate and rebel elf!
I first want to share a conversation with you that I had with a couple of android developers called Layla and Ben:
<Layla> Help me Ben, you’re my only hope.
<Old Ben> You know, android development is going to cause me a lot of trouble.
<Simon> I find your lack of faith disturbing.
<Layla> I hate waiting for code updates, and hate leads to fear.
<Old Ben> Who’s the more foolish; the fool, or the fool who waits for code updates?
<Layla> I assure you, my team is working as fast as they can.
<Old Ben> Perhaps I can find new productivity tools to motivate them.
<Simon> Now, witness the true power of this fully operational JRebel for Android — version 1.0!
That’s when I showed them all a JRebel for Android demo — true story! Only at the end did they realize the power of JRebel for Android! Okay, so that may not have happened to me, but it might have occurred somewhere in a galaxy far, far away.
What is JRebel for Android?
JRebel for Android is a productivity tool that enables you to see your code and resource changes instantly. You know, without the install, build or run stages!
We also have more great news for you! Not only have we released version 1.0, but our license price has come down as well. In fact we’ve cut our personal license from $149 down to just $49! That’s no typo, just forty-nine dollars for an entire year of Android development with instant code and resource updates! Why this change? Not only is it the time for giving, but you’ve all been very very good girls and boys ;o) Check out our pricing page for more details.
Since our early access version of JRebel for Android, we’ve made big improvements on our overall performance. In fact, start up times are virtually the same when using JRebel for Android as when not. A big shout out to a lot of hard work from our performance elves.
Some of the other really important and significant JRebel for Android features include support for:
- Debugger integration
- Android Studio 1.0 and later, including 2.0 preview builds
- Both Android emulators and devices
- Incremental install
