    214marp, hello, congratulations on your first post and a hearty welcome to TechJamaica. I am Satanforce. I will save you.

    Or at least try.

    Back in the day, we'd go straight to the Hackaday series on Android development. By "back in the day" in mean 2010. You will need DroidDraw, Eclipse and the Andoid SDKs to get started. Stay Tuned.

    The Hacaday Series:

    My dev flow is as follows:
    1. UI development with Photoshop use sites like http://freebiesbug.com/psd-freebies/app-design/ and http://www.pttrns.com/ to convert ui into png files and so on build the perfect user interface
    2. Android studio and grade ( Package dependency management) prefer over eclipse.
    3. Android documentation is your friend https://developer.android.com/guide/index.html
    4. Me been lazy i dont really code stuff that already exist https://android-arsenal.com/free
    5. Open source is your friend, search for open source projects and learn from them.
    6. Source control (Not a criteria but a must have moving forward as a developer)

    If you ever want to learn anything, the best way to learn is to code most things yourself.

    If you are not interested in learning and just want to get something working then copy and paste other people stuff.

    @pezz dont think you need to code fancy UI,File management and other aspects of app dev when you can preload libraries to do so.

    I agree.

    Using a library is not the same as copy and pasting.

    214marp, How good is your Java? While I will try to help, my Java skills have atrophied greatly, so stuff like interfaces, listeners, anonymous and generic classes will take a while to come back to me.

    @SatanForce I just started learning java about 4 months ago.. then i focused more on OOP aspect of Java.. to be honest my java knowledge is not all that great.. however i was able to pick up some concepts and how it applied to Android(which i started a couple weeks ago).. i realized the only way i was gonna get it is to build something real(the photo app).. i would appreciate any help i can get..
