Google released Android which is an open-source mobile phone
operating system with Linux-based platform. It consists of the
operating system, middleware, and user interface and application
software. An Android app is a software application running on the
Android platform. Because the Android platform is built for mobile
devices, a typical Android app is designed for a smartphone or a tablet
PC running on the Android OS.
Although an Android app can be made
available by developers through their websites, most Android apps are
uploaded and published on the Android Market, an online store dedicated
to these applications. The Android Market features both free and priced
Step 1: Download Android Studio
To program in most languages,
you need a piece of software called an IDE or ‘Integrated Development
Environment’. The most common IDE for Android development is Android Studio, which comes direct from Google itself. You can get it here.
Step 2: Setting Up Android Studio
Now you can click on Android Studio to launch it. Once it
opens up, you’ll be presented with a menu where you’ll be able to get
started or configure some options. The great thing is that everything is
handled for you at this point, though you may want to familiarize
yourself with the SDK Manager (Configure > SDK
Manager) which is where you’ll update your Android SDK to support newer
versions, as well as download things like code samples or support for
Google Glass. But don’t worry about that now but if Android Studio says
you’re missing something, this is where you’ll probably need to go to
So really there are three main things interacting when you use Android Studio to create your apps.
Android Studio itself, which is an IDE that provides you with a nice interface for coding.
The code you write in Java, which you installed a moment ago…
And the Android SDK which you’ll access through your Java code in order to do Android-type things
Step 3: Starting a New Project
Once you’ve installed your samples, you can go back to the first page
you saw when you loaded up Android Studio. Now you want to choose Start a new Android Studio Project – it’s finally happening!
the name you want for your application and your ‘company domain’.
Together these elements will be used to create your package name with
the following format:
Step 4: Making an Actual Layout
Once you start new project you need to create layout of you application. it is very simple. in android studio you manually as well as pick and drop these are 2 option.
you can create layout manually programming or either you can create layout by pick and drip option. pick and drop is very simple to use without programming you can design layout of your android application.
Step 4: Making an Actual Java Programming
For this step you will need the programming language to program application. you can also initially start with the basic activities, such as opening new window, create pop up, toast message it is very simple to create. You can its 2 three line programming on google.
As per my opinion as developer android application you should start with such a basic things after that you will get automatically known other hidden things of android application development.
So lets begin to develop your firt hello world application. all the best.
