What's up developers!

I've compiled a list of some of the top developer tools for Android, mainly for creating your own app or smartphone optimized website. Here are a few:

Buzztouch: One of the most popular open-source app engines for android. No programming skills necessary.
AppMakr: Another “no coding required” app builder with excellent user support.
ShoutEm: App creator mainly focused on bloggers and publishers, integrates with WordPress, Facebook and Twitter. Again, no programming required to get started.
AppsGeyser: Great tool for building android-friendly websites.
AppYet: Professional and intuitive app creator.
AppyPie: Three-step app builder with simple drag and drop interface.
Mobbase: Cool app maker for bands, artists, DJs, labels, radio stations, general music industry people.

Are there any other useful ones that I've missed? Or better alternatives?

I am surprised you have not mentioned mobincube here. I am fairly new to this, but having tried so many (so called Free) app building platforms from this list (appsbar, appypie, appsgeyser etc etc), I find most of them though might offer 'No ads' or 'white labelling', but are very costly.
Yeah even the yearly plans, cos it's just 1 app per plan.
And not everyone can afford to pay for the whole year anyways, when they are not sure if their apps will be a success or not, in the fast expanding app universe.

Of course, nothing beats Buzztouch (3 apps Free with no ads n then just $79 a year for 50 apps) but then again, it is not exactly a drag n drop, download app files n publish kind of platform.

So, What do think of mobincube? Great prices and unlimited apps. That's what everyone wants, I believe.

I am currently using Tabletize. It 's the most complete editor WYSIWYG I have found online. I have already created a dozen native applications for different clients on platforms iOS, Android, and Chrome Web Store.

Is Android Studio considered a developer tool?

Currently I am using Haxe and Haxeflixel to develop android games.

You could consider an IDE, a tool yeah :)

I use Android Studio most of the times for native Android app development.
