ARM is introducing a new tool for Android developers called the ARM Development Studio 5 community edition. It allows applications written in C and C++ to be optimized for ARM hardware (pretty much every chipset inside every Android device) even more than the Native Development Kit provided by Google allows.
With this, developers can achieve up to 4 times better performance than they currently enjoy. While the NDK has proven to be good enough and has helped developers bring over many great applications, this tool can only help developers and users alike.
