    Developing android apps

    Hellos,

    Anyone know what book is a good place to start on learning to write android apps?

    Is a general Java book any good? That is the language I think used for android.

    Thanks,

    This is THE best Android development system on the market. It is extremely easy to use and is similar to VB script. The product has libraries that cover everything that you could ever want to do in Android....It's cheap too

    Also a good place to start is the android dev guide:

    https://developer.android.com/guide/index.html

    You can download the SDK and emulators for testing and debugging your app. There is also a lot of info in there regarding UI standards and coding standards.

    I see in South Africa we cannot open merchant accounts with google for paid apps! Work arounds seem to be opening bank accounts in other countries.

    Well, if you want to write a good app, get some source code from sourceforge on the internet and download that, and edit it. this will save you time. you can laod different sound and graphics files from wherever you usually do it from, but that is not the most important thing in this market is it?

    Why not type in a google search with java for dummies? these books will teach you the instructions for setting up the operations or instructions, leaving you to your imagination, and, you have experience already. type in "pdf" in your search.

    Can also use Lazarus

    Is like a Delphi clone, just open source and free! Based on Free Pascal.
    Can develop for any architecture, any platform (o/s). Very powerful!

    Seems that one can only develop for Android using Linux
