With Android SDK manager, you can download important packages of Android API and tools.


You Must Download the following Pacakages.


SDK Tools
Required. Your new SDK installation already has the latest version. Make sure you keep this up to date.



SDK Platform-tools
Required. You must install this package when you install the SDK for the first time.



SDK Platform
Required.You must download at least one platform into your environment so you're able to compile your application.


To get started, download the latest Android version, plus the lowest version you plan to support (we recommend Android 2.2 for your lowest version).



System Image (emulator)
Recommended. It's a good practice to download system images for all versions of Android your app supports and test your app running on them with the Android emulator.



Android Support
Recommended. Includes a static library that allows you to use some of the latest Android APIs (such as fragments, plus others not included in the framework at all) on devices running a platform version as old as Android 1.6. All of the activity templates available when creating a new project with the ADT Plugin require this.


SDK Samples
Recommended. The samples give you source code that you can use to learn about Android, load as a project and run, or reuse in your own app.
