Should I use Maven for an Android App? [closed]

My teams current task is to develop an Android app. Since it is a small app and also some kind of prototype we decided to evaluate Maven and the Android Eclipse plugin.

In short:
After two developers spent three days, we were not able to gain the Android Eclipse plugin functionalities in our Maven project.

  • The R class was not updated according to our resources
  • We were not able to start the application directly from within Eclipse in the emulator and/or an attached device

Because of these issues which impeded our development sincerely we decided to develop the app without Maven.
But if any of you knows how to fix these issues I would love to hear a solution!
