    Hi Kavindu Dayananda

    AVD (Android Virtual Device) is a great tool for developers who want to test their apps on a virtual Android environment without having to use a physical device. It allows developers to create and customize virtual devices with different screen sizes, resolutions, and Android versions.

    AVD can be used with Android Mobile Studio (formerly known as Android Studio), which is the official integrated development environment (IDE) for Android app development. Android Mobile Studio comes with AVD Manager, which allows developers to create, manage, and run virtual devices.

    Using AVD with Android Mobile Studio can help developers test their apps in different environments without the need for physical devices. It can also help them identify issues that may arise on different devices and versions of Android, which can be crucial for ensuring the quality of their apps.

    Overall, AVD is a suitable tool for developers who want to test their apps on virtual Android devices and can be used with Android Mobile Studio for mobile app development.
