I WANT TO MAKE MY OWN APP FOR ANDROID WHERE DO I START?

If you want to start your own app store business and you dont know from where to start it read this.

Since Android came into our lives, there has been a huge evolution of everything surrounding Google’s operating system. There have been many versions that the operating system has gone through and currently some terminals have already received Android version 5.0 that has nothing to do with the one that determined a before and after, version 2.1 with which the Google Nexus One arrived.

As a result, there are many developers who have been adding more and more apps through the official Google Play store.

Surely many people have considered the possibility to create their own application for Android with that great idea that they came up with or with the tool that is missing both on mobile or tablet.

Steps to follow to develop your own App for Android

The first thing once you have clear what you want to develop is to choose and prepare the development environment. In this aspect there are two alternatives, or program a native application or make use of the different frameworks or free applications that exist today that allow you to make mobile applications with hardly any programming knowledge.

Based on the development of an application without the use of framework or applications,it should be noted that Android also offers a complete user interface, applications, code libraries, structures for applications and multimedia support for its use.

In addition, even if operating system components are written in programming languages such as C or C++, Android applications are designed in Java. In this way, since Java is also Open Source just like Android,this entails being able to develop whatever you want without associated costs and in an easier way, although you can also use other programming languages.

To do this the first thing will be to configure a development environment that will be based on using an IDE or integrated development environment (e.g. Eclipse) in which the JDK (Java Development Kit) or development kit for Java corresponding, the SDK (Software Development Kit) and ADT ( Android Development Tools) of Android to be able to make use of the tools and libraries of Android own.

From there, it is advisable to configure an Android emulator within the environment so that you do not have to install the different versions of the application on the terminal itself every time you want to perform a test. You can also have your mobile connected to the PC via USB in“USB Debugging”mode and therefore each time the application is launched you can choose to install the application also on the mobile, being able to do the corresponding tests on the same terminal.

From now on it is only left to start programming the application and once the application is developed leave it installed on the mobile for your personal use and enjoyment.

If you also want to sell the app,you must register as a developer in the Google Play store and upload the app to be reviewed and approved for publication. From there Google will establish a contract with conditions for its commercialization and you will be able to see how the application can be downloaded by thousands of users.
