The term “Android” is commonly used to refer to the operating system, and that’s accurate but it’s also incomplete. Android is a complete software platform. It includes the operating system, which is based on Linux but is specifically designed to be run on mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets. In addition to the operating system, the Android platform includes an application framework that lets you create and deploy your own custom apps. The Android SDK includes all of the tools you need to create and package those apps, including compilers, debugging tools and more. And there’s also support for apps that go beyond phones and tablets: Android Wear for wearable devices like watches, Android Auto, and Android TV.
