I had difficulty finding straightforward instructions on how to install the Google Android SDK onto Apple’s OS X Lion so I could test websites. Eventually I merged the instructions provided by this Ben Hedrington with the instructions provided on the official Google Android SDK page and was successful.
So I’ve written revised instructions below for Apple’s OS X Lion 10.7.3:
You should now see an application called “java” appear on your dock that uses the Android icon. Additionally it will open a window that will allow you to install the additional components required so you can actually use the Android operating system as you would on a regular mobile device.
You have now successfully installed and launched the Android SDK simulator application on your Apple Lion OS X.
