     title: Android Shell Tool Guide
     # Android Shell Tool Guide
    -This guide shows how to use Cordova's set of platform-centered shell
    -tools to develop Android apps. This development path, discussed in the
    -[Overview](../../overview/index.html), may offer you a greater range of development options
    -the cross-platform CLI tool described in [The Command-Line Interface](../../cli/index.html).
    -For example, you need to use shell tools when deploying a custom
    -Cordova WebView alongside native components.  Before using either
    -development path, you must first configure the Android SDK environment
    -as described in the [Android Platform Guide](index.html).
    +## Building with Gradle
    -To enable shell tools for Android, download Cordova from
    -[]( The download contains
    -separate archives for each platform. Expand each you wish to target,
    -`android` in this case. The relevant tools are typically available in
    -the top-level `bin` directory, otherwise consult the __README__ file
    -for more detailed directions.
    +As of **cordova-android@4.0.0**, Cordova for Android projects are built using
    +[Gradle]( For instructions on building with Ant, refer
    +to older versions of the documentation.
    -These tools allow you to create, build, and run Android apps.  For
    -information on the additional command-line interface that enables
    -plugin features across all platforms, see Using Plugman to Manage
    -Plugins. See Application Plugins for details on how to develop
    +### Gradle Properties
    -## Create a Project
    +It is possible to configure the Gradle build by setting the values of certain
    +[Gradle properties](
    +that Cordova exposes. The following properties are available to be set:
    -Run the `create` command, specifying the existing path to the project,
    -the reverse-domain-style package identifier, and the app's display
    -name.  Here is the syntax for both Mac/Linux and Windows:
    +  * **cdvBuildMultipleApks** (default: false)
