Tizen SDK gets a fresh start as Tizen Studio, offers one-click installation
Samsung has big plans for Tizen since most of the smartphone powered by this particular mobile platform have been very successful on the market.
So, the next step logical step after introducing the Z2 last week would be to provide developers a friendlier environment where they can create apps much easier. And Samsung has just delivered on that unspoken promise.
The South Korean company has just announced that Tizen SDK becomes Tizen Studio 1.0 beginning September 1. But this isn't just a marketing move, as the new Tizen Studio comes with many new features and improvements.
The most important is the option to install all SDKs needed with just one click. Previously, in order to start creating apps for several platforms, developers had to install SDK packages for each of platform.
The good news is Samsung now allows users to select and install necessary platforms and profiles with one click. Basically, when installing the newly announced Tizen Studio, developers will be able to select what they need in order to start creating apps.
Moreover, Samsung announced that Tizen Studio 1.0 is now more stable and lightweight. Also, its usability has been improved, so developers can expect better UX and UI. Along with this release, the Tizen website has been enhanced content-wise, but its search engine has been improved as well. 50 new sample apps have been added too.
It's also worth noting that starting today, version control will be used separately for Tizen platform and Tizen SDK. The new Tizen Studio 1.0 can be downloaded from the Tizen developer website.
