LearnAndroid


With Android phones and tablets making their way into more and more pockets and bags, dipping a toe into Android coding is becoming more popular too. And it's a great platform to code for -- the API is largely well-documented and easy to use, and it's just fun to write something that you can run on your own phone. You don't even need a phone at first, because you can write and test code in an emulator on your Linux PC. In the first of this two-part intro to Android coding, get a basic timer app up and running and start learning about the Android API. This tutorial assumes some basic familiarity with Java, XML, and programming concepts, but even if you're shaky on those, feel free to follow along!

You will learn about
How to setup your development environment,
How to build a Hello World application,
How projects are structured,
How to localize,
How to store data,
How to build background processes,
How to make sure your application is performing well.

Not very good You must traverse a multi-layer menu to get to each page - you cannot just flip to next/prior pages. It takes awhile to get to much meat - some of the early pages have only a few lines. You also cannot adjust the text size, and some of the example code is *very* small! The examples are of limited use because you cannot highlight and copy any of the code. Overall, this App is more a waste of time and hardly worth the cost even if free.
