Develop Android Application !

Hi, I'm going to tell you about developing applications for Android mobile phones. Okay lets begin.

Requirements

First, you need an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for developing an Android application. You can use the following IDE's:

  • Eclipse
  • Android studio
  • IntelliJ

For beginner you can start with Eclipse. You can use eclipse and Android Development Kit for development. It can be achieved in two ways.

Method 1:

Google provides the development kit for Android in which both eclipse and ADT are bundled as a package. you can download it from here.

Method 2:

  1. First download the eclipse from here
  2. Open the downloaded Eclipse
  3. Now you need ADT plugin(Android Development Tool) for Android development.
  4. To install and configure ADT, follow the procedures from ADT configuration

For Experts you can use Android studio which has enhanced features for development.

For Most people I prefer Method 1. Because it's so easy, simply download the package and open it, you are ready to code !.
