Since last few days I was trying to get my hands on some new technology, tried many but finally landed with Android Development. The only thing which attracted me to this is that I can deploy my apps directly to my phone. Here is a quick tutorial how to get started.
Android plugins are available in the major IDEs like Eclipse and NetBeans, I tried configuring with all but the ADT (Android Development Tool) available is easy to use and recommended. Just download the bundle and extract to a specific location and it does everything for you.
With a single download, the ADT Bundle includes everything you need to begin developing apps:
- Eclipse + ADT plugin
- Android SDK Tools
- Android Platform-tools
- The latest Android platform
- The latest Android system image for the emulator
Stay Tuned for next posts on android development.
