Hey everyone! I've heard that some of Android developers use IDEA instead of Android Studio. Is there any reason to do so?

Not really — Idea lags behind AS in terms of features a bit, and while AS lags behind with Idea builds, it’s usually not something you would actually need

Some devs at my company use IDEA because they want to avoid Gradle sync, and you can’t turn that off in Android Studio. (we manually run a gradle task to generate the IDEA project files)
