Text of 7 Steps to Create Your First Android App


  • Over the last 6 years, FreedomApps' programming team have developed over 130 awesome apps for clients in over 13 countries.

    Theyve spent nearly 250,000 man hours in front of their keyboards programming new app ideas.

    We know our stuff!

    And were constantly on the cutting edge of which apps are hot and which are not. Even more important were watching trends over the next 3 years to see what the next big winners are likely to be.

    We have two offices both in Sydney and abroad. In Sydney were situated amongst the leafy streets and cafes of trendy Victoria St, Darlinghurst.

  • IF YOURE THINKING OF creating Android apps but do not have much know-how, you can follow the steps we listed...

  • Formulating your app concept through ideation.

    Before getting started, you need to have an idea of what youre going to create. The trick is to make your first app relatively simple and to focus on creating something.

  • Choosing your IDE and setting it up.

    The IDE is your Integrated Development Environment - a piece of software that provides everything you need to develop your apps.

  • The official recommended method and most common way to build Android apps is to use Android Studio and Java as it gives flexibility while ensuring plenty of support if things go wrong.

  • You can build your own images or borrow from free public resources but be aware of someone's copyright.

    Collecting Resources

  • Theres nothing wrong with using free materials; most professional apps do it!

  • Building the layout

    Create your layout in Android Studio using the designer. This is a tool that lets you simply drag and drop the widgets where you want them on the page.

  • Writing the code

    Once you know the

    basics of Java and have

    your widgets/views in

    place, you may start

    writing the code. Just

    set up the basics like

    operations, variables

    and button clicks.As you build your code,

    youll want to test that its

    working. Build a debug

    APK and install it on your

    device, or use the AVD

    (Android Virtual Device)

    Manager to run Android

    apps on your computer to

    test if your apps are

    working or not.

  • Applying more advanced functionality

    Add more advanced functionality specific to your app by identifying what you need your app to do and then search Google to find advice on how to get that working.

  • Publishing your app

    Publishing your app means you need to sign your application and create a new APK (the installation file that users will download to use your app). You'll also need to pay a one time $25 registration fee.

  • "With the ability to look up

    your own solutions and use

    them, theres really no

    challenge you cant handle. By the end of day 7, your app should

    be able to do all the things that it

    needs to do."
