Then, your mind is immersed in creativity to create a thirst-quenching app for users. Some cool images come to your mind where you can see unsurpassed downloads? Where are you stuck? Is learning how to program a successful Android application?
Learning is an endless process and if you have that hunger inside you, no task is unattainable. Developing Android applications can be a daunting task, especially if you are a beginner. A lot of in-depth knowledge is needed to start the development process. Some of the terms you may not even be familiar with appear, but a special thanks to Google, which makes our task a lot easier. Take a deep sigh of relief and fasten your seat belt for large, uneven coding.
Step 1: Select the operating system
An operating system is the most important software that runs on a computer. It is a means of communication between the programmer and the computer itself. The correct selection of the operating system (operating system) depends on the scope of the project. There are three main operating systems that rule the world of the Internet: Linux, Windows, and Mac.
Linux is the operating system of choice for most developers, but if you are new, choose the Windows operating system. Once you’ve made your selection, you can move on to the next step in installing Android Studio.
Step 2: download and install Android Studio
Android Studio is Google’s most widely used “integrated development environment” owned by Google. IDE is a platform where you can see the codes you write and view the results there itself. After downloading Android Studio, you can simply complete the installation process to see a screen where you can run your codes.
A common editor can also be used to execute codes, but why ignore the specialty of this IDE? It is designed specifically for Android code and application.
Step 3: Download the Java Development Kit (JDK)
After downloading Android Studio, the next important software is JDK. The programming language that will be used to develop the Android app will be JAVA. Therefore, to use Android Studio, you need to install JDK which can be downloaded here. Follow the installation instructions carefully. Once done, your Android Studio is ready to launch.
Another deciding factor is the UI where you want to see the output of your code. There are two options open for you: Emulator or Real-time Device.
An Android emulator is an Android virtual device that will look exactly the same as your Android device and can be used to run and test your code. If you have chosen to test your code on a device in real time, the driver that supports it must be installed again.
Step 4: Starting the first project
You are ready to start your new Android Studio project. Enter the name of the project you are waiting for and after successful completion, you can upload it to the Google Play Store.
Naming your project should be smart enough because this will be the file all users will see. As you think about the application, you may have decided which platform to run on, that is; Phone or tablet.
Step 5: The start page for the final project
Once you open the app you are creating, you can see a message that says “Hello World”. This is the smallest program that all developers make while learning about a new technology. From this, you can start coding your desired project in mind. It can be a job posting app or a taxi booking app or maybe even a Book Store.
Finally jumping into reality
Not all apps are successful and get great reviews. A little bit of marketing coupled with a user-friendly experience is something that needs to be focused more. Furthermore, JAVA is a language that requires a deep sense of knowledge. Practice is the best possible way to come out with flying colors.
