About This Class

In this Course i will showing you the basics of how to get started with making GUIs in Android using Eclipse. In particular this video covers how to make an Android version of an iOS GUI - which you will probably be required to do quite often in this day and age due to the popularity of the iPhone.

There’s a lot to get excited about in mobile application development today. With increasingly sophisticated hardware, tablet PCs and a variety of software platforms (Symbian OS, iOS, WebOS, Windows Phone 7…), the landscape for mobile developers is full of opportunities — and a little complex as well.

So much choice can be overwhelming when you just want to get started building mobile applications. Which platform should you choose? What programming language should you learn? What kit do you need for your planned project? In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to start writing applications for Android, the open-source mobile operating system popularized by Google.

Here are a few other advantages Android offers you as a developer:

  • The Android SDK is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, so you don’t need to pay for new hardware to start writing applications.
  • An SDK built on Java. If you’re familiar with the Java programming language, you’re already halfway there.
  • By distributing your application on Android Market, it’s available to hundreds of thousands of users instantly. You’re not just limited to one store, because there are alternatives, too. For instance, you can release your application on your own blog. Amazon have recently been rumoured to be preparing their own Android app store also.
  • As well as the technical SDK documentation, new resources are being published for Android developers as the platform gains popularity among both users and developers.
