Use dependencies and support libraries: Android Development Essential Training: Create Your First App

Android Studio and Gradle use a dependency system known as Maven. A Maven repository is a library of software, a place where developers can add libraries and other developers can download them. In this project's build.gradle file, which I've opened, Android Studio has a couple of lines in the dependencies block that refer to support libraries. The appcompat library gives you features that you can add to an app that will work all the way back to API level 7 devices.
