Launching Android tools right from IntelliJ IDEA

This is a post from MobileTech conference in Munich, Germany where we enjoy talking to a bunch of mobile developers about IntelliJ IDEA for Android and AppCode for iOS. And we thought like sharing with you one more feature coming in IntelliJ IDEA 11.1.

With the latest IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 EAP you can easily launch Android tools such as DDMS, Hierarchy Viewer and Draw 9 Patch right from the IDE. New actions are available in Tools | Android menu.

For a proper interaction with ADB we highly recommend launching DDMS from the IDE, not from a file manager or command line. If you want to launch it from the outside of the IDE or launch Eclipse+ADT without closing IntelliJ IDEA, please disable ADB service from Tools menu before it.

Please feel free to give us feedback in comments here or submit bug reports in our tracker.
