The Android Asset Studio, a tool developed by Googler Roman Nurik, is indispensable for developers and designers alike. Need to generate a nine-patch without stopping to think about where your 1px black lines need to go? How about a quick icon or two? The Asset Studio has you covered. But for all its useful functions, the last time we had a major visual refresh to cover was back in 2012 when it adopted all the #33B5E5, #holoyolo goodness of Android's older design language.
That changed overnight when Nurik launched a massive visual refresh for the studio, along with cleaner code in an effort to make contributing easier.
The site looks great in static form, but check it out in action:

The studio's individual tools all have a more unified structure, making it easier to predict where important settings will be, and lending a large, open canvas to the asset you're working on. And of course downloading your finished assets is as easy as hitting the bright blue FAB in the corner.
