I tried Android Studio, only just a simple example project (bluetooth chat with mods)
import (mods to make the bluetooth part connect to a bluetooth-serial type endpoint)...

It is painful.

They went to great lengths to name every other element of that ecosystem
DIFFERENT than people coming from other contexts may recognize. 

I mean, you know what an 'activity' is ? At first glance? ...

The standard controls are well, standard; and no clear path/explanation to install any 
non-standard ones (like, how would you program up something like analog gamepad buttons?)

(one might just about recognize a Button class, and c&p its creation&usage to get what one wants,
 within the bounds of same class... ok it works... even got progress/trackbars to work as joysticks...
 but the rest is so baroque and unhelpful and unintuitive, I can't bear to look at it any more... 
 too many variables. oh, and what is a 'listener' again ?)

Now try merging code from another example (e.g. accelerometer/gyroscope handling)
with the serial bluetooth dongle/chat example. In Java. 

I'm still struggling.

Not helped by, that my 4 year old i5 24XX CPU turns its fan into a small jetplane (noise-wize)
wile just browsing code trying to figure things out for more than half an hour.
