Android Apps Development is not very difficult if you have a bit idea about java and working with Google related Apps like App Engine Apps. We published ago about the possibilities or rather opportunities those can open up through Android Apps Development. This is a very small but useful guide for Android Apps Development.
Resources needed for Android Apps Development
Resources means – Man, Management and Money. All are open source, no question of Money, Man is you and Management is downloading the needed tools and the works there after. Google has very useful software and knowledge-base for Android Apps Development.
Very easy. You need Android SDK for Android Apps Development that can be found here. Download as per your Operating System is. For Windows download the exe one.
Basically you will get an idea on what to do here on Google’s website but do not read it now unless you know the terms used there !
Get started for Android Apps Development
Just double click to install like a program, no need to think that you are doing Android Apps Development or something difficult sounding. Most will not get the prompt to install Java SE D, its nothing but another software needed for our Android Apps Development. If you get the prompt (or rather you have not installed on your computer knowingly or unknowingly!), you will get the link on that Android SDK installer to download and install this part needed for our Android Apps Development project.
Well and Good. But we need another software to install. This is Eclipse and you can download it from here for your Android Apps Development project. The page is quite head spinning. Simply click the Eclipse Classic. It will automatically detect the closest server nearby you – if you are fearful after noticing 175 MB size, do not be afraid of.
So, right now you have two softwares installed for Android Apps Development project. We need one thing to install through Eclipse. That is ADT Plugin for Eclipse.
Go to Help > Install New Software ; with Eclipse. You will use this url : https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse and name it ADT Plugin. Once all the tools get installed, you will be prompted to restart Eclipse but you will click “Add Changes Now”.

Simply go clicking I Agree, Next etc. These are quite easy steps. I said to click “Add Changes Now” instead of restart because it will automate the next steps needed for preparing Android Apps Development platform. It is a cheat sheet and shortcut.
Now once everything is done, open Android SDK Manager and install the recommended packages.
Everything is done. I have made the dog’s tail straight. You need not to read this Android Apps Development article anymore, because its ready – simply go to this page of Google and create your first Android App.
