Android Applications Development
Clearly there’s a demand for Android app development, and it’s turning the platform with the lovable green mascot into more and more of a strong first choice rather than just a secondary option to iOS.
Android is an exciting space to make apps to help you communicate, organize, educate, entertain or anything else you’re passionate about.

Here are a few more reasons to learn Android:

  • You'll be plugged into the open source platform with (at the time of press) thelargest market share of smart devices worldwide.
  • Android's policies on device provisioning and app submission are more open than Apple's, meaning that once you complete your first app—as you'll do in this tutorial—you and your friends can enjoy it on your devices right away !
  • If you have experience developing for iOS, you can become well-versed in the ways that the two platforms coincide and differ (we'll discuss a few in this tutorial) and what you like about each. Then you'll have more tools at your disposal for your next mobile project.
  • It's not just the iPhone anymore. There are so many smartphones, tablets, glasses, and watches out there, coming from so many manufacturers, and they're all trying to jump into the game. You don't have to be any sort of market analyst to know that there are a few important platforms and Android is one of them.

This tutorial has been written with an aim to teach you how to develop and package Android application. We will start from environment setup for Android application programming and then drill down to look into various aspects of Android applications.
