Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can make an app for Android?

perhaps a builder software for Windows, websute service, I am not much of a coder. I know only web design languages but not programming languages

it would be serious help and would really appreciate it if someone could assisst me with this.

Thank you for your time.

There might be some 'build your own" things out there, but learning Java and using Eclipse with the Android SDK would be the better idea in the long run.

Thats what I did. But I have a grounding in other programming languages before I started, so that helped.

Here's where you start, following these steps:
  • Download and install the Android SDK
  • Download and install the packages you want; the Android Development Tools, version-specific SDKs, etc. instructions found here
  • Download and install Eclipse Juno (for mobile development)
  • Install the ADT plugin for Eclipse; instructions found here
  • and that's about it.
There's lots of code samples and what not, included in the SDK you download. Be sure to check them out. And of course, Google + StackOverflow are your best friends! Happy developing.
