Which eclipse should i download for Android Apps
If you would like to start develop an Android Apps, the first documents you read is  the HelloWorld from  Android Developers. They will assume that you are using Eclipse and suggest you develop using Eclipse, but doesn’t not suggest which Eclipse that you should download. You will open the website Eclipse Download and they are more than 10 kinds of download.

Note: ADT no longer indicates which version of Eclipse is supported.

ADT 14.0.0 (October 2011) supports only Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) or greater.

ADT 8.0.1 supports Eclipse Helios (3.6) Formerly documented in here.

For older versions of ADT, you may need to install version 3.5.
