How to Build an Android App

The Android platform makes it comparably simple to produce and distribute apps, as it features an open source basis, meaning you won't have to wait long periods of time for approval. Assuming you have the proper software, you may build your app from your PC computer. The Android Software Development Kit (SDK) allows you to write raw code among other perks, and keep in mind you may create Android apps using the same tools for developing Java applications.



To create a new project with Android Studio, you'll first click "New Project" on the studio's Welcome screen. Fill in your application name, company domain, and package name after clicking "Configure New Project," and don't forget to select "Phone and Tablet" in regards to what form factors your app will run on.

"Project Location" is the directory on your system for housing project files. The Minimum SDK will also require selection; it is the earliest version of Android supported by your app.

Additionally, you'll need to select "Blank Activity" under "Add an activity to your project" and click "Next". Leave the activity description field for your new project blank at this time and click "Finish".



The next step is to run your app, which you can do from the Android Studio. Simply select a project file and click "Run", which you'll see in the toolbar. Select the "Choose a running device" radio button in the "Choose Window" screen (don't worry, the screen will pop up), and select your device. Click "Ok" to have Android Studio install and start your app on a connected device.



Once your app is installed, you'll learn how to build a simple interface, which is accomplished using a "hierarchy" of View and ViewGroup objects. The former is generally either a UI widget such as a text field, while the latter is an "invisible view container" that "define how the view is laid out, such as in a grid or vertical list."
