General Development "Android Studio is a new Android development environment based on IntelliJ IDEA. Similar to Eclipse with the ADT Plugin, Android Studio provides integrated Android developer tools for development and debugging." Lots of ooh's and aah's from the developer crowd as this one was demoed.

I think the only UI toolkit that's more of a chore to work with than Android is iOS. That's a true house of horrors. Even from C#.

Depends if you're talking about only mobile UI toolkits or all of them. I can think of a few that are still in use (low-level mfc or GTK+) that make even iOS' UI design look like a pleasure trip. And, of course iOS is a horror in C#, because it wasn't designed with C# in mind.

The problem with UIKit and AppKit was that they were designed to be used with Objective-C. They don't translate to other language interfaces well, because of the unique way Objective-C declares methods and links views/controls to actions/outlets in the controller's code.
