Need to Rebuild Android Project With Every Change


I’m using Kotlin to develop a very simple Android app (using IntelliJ IDEA 11.1.4) but it looks like I need to “rebuild project” when I make a change to the code otherwise the app is deployed to the device in its old version. This never happens when I develop Android apps in Java. Does anyone have an idea whether this is normal behaviour?


Try this as a workaround: Go to Settings/Compiler and uncheck the "Use external build" checkbox.

Hi Andrey,

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
I’ll give it a try when I get back to it (probably this weekend).
