10 Steps to Create Your First Android App

10 Steps to Create Your First Android App

Building an Android app isn’t as hard as it might seem, as long as you focus on creating a simple app at first. Android Authority shares a tutorial that covers the 10 main things you have to do to develop your first app.

Although it’s presented as a 10-day program that takes you from idea to Play Store publishing, if you don’t have any coding background, you’ll probably need more time than a couple of hours for each of ten days. Learning the basics of Java alone could take days or weeks.

Still, this is a good outline with linked resources to get you started. The ten steps:

  1. Ideation (coming up with your app concept)
  2. Drawing a wireframe
  3. Choosing your IDE and setting it up
  4. Learning the basics of Java
  5. Creating or acquiring your images
  6. Building the layout
  7. Writing the code
  8. Implementing more advanced functionality
  9. Adding some extra polish
  10. Publishing your app

Somewhere between steps 7 and 10, you can also add “Debugging” because you will run into bugs. Also, steps 7 through 9 will include lots of Googling and visits to Stack Exchange.

Check out the guide below to get started.
