There are 2 downloads, one is the SDK and Studio/IDE the other download is just the SDK. I downloaded just the SDK and followed the tutorial. I used to download all sorts of stuff in the SDK but the tutorial enumerates the modules that need to be downloaded. It save a lot of time and disk space.

Subject: Setting up Android SDK on Mac

The online tutorial asks mac users to install the latest JDK -- done

then gives this URL

for the Android SDK.. but it links to a completely new IDE: Android Studio… and nothing matches the LC lesson on this any more…

hmmm what to do: lesson online is out of date now?

go ahead and install it anyway. ends up in my Mac/applications folder.

But I am unable to now select the android SDK in the LC preferences/mobile  set up.

what next?
