How to build an Android applications in 5 min
Recently i’m walking through the a demo video by Dan Morrill who builds a simple application on the Android platform.He is a member of google developer program and explain the following thing in the first cut of making applications for android
It is very easy to builds applications for android
Application are developed using android sdk (Download the SDK )
How to make a simple application for android ?
- Go to SDK under the menu of file>project>android project.
- Decide the details of application like Package name /Activity name / Application name.
- After filling the details just “Finish” it.
- This will create a source directory in right side with the name of “src” menu (java directory)
In the similar way you can create lots of applications from simple to advance for example if you want to develop an application to dial a phone.
How to create an application to dial a phone with xml base file (layout) ?
- Go to the source file of you hello code (described above) you may change the hello word into any thing for example name.
- Copy this source into the xml editor and create different class (e.g Class.Activity)
- Now in order to get access to data follow these logic commands
- Now you will create mapping which tell us “which column map to which user interface element)
- Go and map the person name to row activity
- Map the data from data source to user interface that will display things
- Decide the methods like “when user click on interface then particular activity occurs” e.g start activity
- Make the options if user need permission to access the database
- Make the options to request for permission using commands READ_CONTACTS and CALL_PHONE
Note: The main benefit of developing application on android is the ease of coding and size of codes
The details video describing all the above facts and methods is here

Maybe it's some useful information for some of you.
I have found a good option for small businesses which want to make mobile apps to connect to customers.
This may be useful for new developers but I cannot see this being helpful to end users.
This start-up offers a subscription service for small businesses to build apps and connect with their customers. The subscription starts at US$9.90. Definitely the cheapest option for small businesses to try out building their own apps before committing to a big investment.
why are you using an apple mac to make an android app... traitor, get a better computer and then come talk to me
I want to make an android apps base on rss feed of my blog, could you provide some info about how to make it and how to use on android phone?
Great article, but didn't got anything from it because I am not a programmer, I am willing to learn the system.
Our application in android detects & recognizes sound and google search that word. We click a button and say the word. But we want to detect the sound automatically(without button clicks) whenever we say a word. Can anyone help us to detect sound automatically...
Hey this is a pretty good android tutorial series for beginners: http://www.youtube.com/cornboyzandroid
Thanks for sharing such an informative post !!!
I am a newbie to the android programming so this post would help me a lot to improve my programming in Android.
Is it possible to build a very simple Android app, that only opens the browser and directs to a certain predestinated URL? (like an icon on the Windows desktop).
I have a very good mobile website, so I don't need to build a complete app. But it would be nice to have my logo in the Android menu of course and it makes it easier to visit the site.
Hope to hear!
It's important to consider marketing your app even before you create one. I teach marketing courses & if you want to sell these apps you must consider alot. One of the main errors people are making is NOT creating a demo site.
When it comes to marketing Droid apps, you MUST have an app demo website for your potential clients to test out. The best & cheapest advice is to get WordPress to market it (Google that if you aren’t familiar). When you get setup use a premium Wordpress theme that is targeted to the Droid like this one:

Have you checked the "android-rss" Android RSS Feed Reader.
Might be this can help you http://code.google.com/p/android-rss/
Great article man. I would like to ask you for a small guidance on which codes to grab from the library and how to use them (I'm no coder, but with some help I can find my way around).
I just would like to develop a small RSS reader app pointing to my blogs' feeds, but so far I'm having a hard time to understand anything...
I also thought about using another app as a base, but the option seems unavailable since I cannot download the apps to my pc.
Thanks in advance for your help, mate. Cheers,
