Menu Welcome to freeCodeCamp News. This is a free, open source, no-ads place to cross-post your blog articles. Read about it here. When I started, there seemed to be no helpful articles that could direct me towards the best resources for Android development. Most articles were vague and often seemed to be written by people who had little or no hands-on experience.
For some of these topics you can find information in the general tutorials as well but if you want more detail, this is for you. In this tutorial you will learn how to set up the action bar, how to add actions, how to split, hide, and overlay it, as well as how to add navigation.
You will also learn about action bar interactivity, such as how to handle clicks on its items and to use action views.
In such cases you need to know how to handle this data. This tutorial leads you step by step in the world of XML parsing. It also helps you create a parser that will look like the one shown in the next screenshot.
Android for iOS Developers With the huge popularity of Android, even die-hard iOS developers are likely to consider switching or at least expanding to it. If you are an iOS developer, you are lucky because you are not new to mobile development as a whole. Of course, you could read the general Android tutorials I listed earlier but especially for you, here is a better tutorial.
Unfortunately, some of the info in this tutorial might be outdated but with the rapid development of mobile programming technologies this is inevitable. This tutorial is great because it summarizes the differences between iOS development and Android development, thus making the change easier for you. The tutorial is a pretty detailed one — it starts with how to install Android Studio, how to create a new project, how to add functionality to it, how to run it, etc.
Localizing Android Apps Android applications are popular all over the world. Your users speak different human languages, which means if you want to reach them, you need to think about localizing your Android apps.
This tutorial explains it all.
Getting Started with Android Library Projects At some point in your Android development career you will get tired of having to re-invent the wheel all the time and you will appreciate the advantages of reusable code. If you are already there, you will certainly want to know more about reusable code.
In this case this tutorial will help you get started as quickly as possible.
The first part warms you up with some basic concepts, while the other two delve into more detail about how and when to use Android Library Projects. So, if you have a spare minute, check the tutorials, learn something new and let us know your favorite tutorials.
If you are still not on friendly terms with it, there is no drama — just move forward and revisit it later. Naturally, we start the list with a tutorial from Google, the creators of Android.
This is good because all the important content about the topic in one place and you just have to read it.
This tutorial has more topics and information than the tutorial from Google, so if you are looking for an in-depth tutorial, this is one the.
If you want to get the most from it, you will need quite a lot of time to read it from start to finish.
It can be a great source if you need to consult a given topic in detail. I find video tutorials less useful except when they teach design, animation, or any other visual topic but for many people they are the preferred way of learning.
If you belong to this group, you will love this series of video tutorials.
Similarly to the previous two tutorials, this series covers everything from absolute beginner level to advanced topics. It might be old-school, but for me the best way to get a complete idea about something is by reading a book about it.
The first two tutorials in this list are book-like but if you want something more authentic you could print them.
Even better, a pdf tutorial, like this one , is a much better option. Similarly to the previous resource, this one might not be very up to date but it does cover the major principles of Android programming.
This is one more general tutorial that covers Android development from beginner level to advanced. If you have some knowledge about Android but you want to delve into games development, this series of video tutorials is a great start. The series starts with the very basics of Android and Eclipse but my personal feeling is that if you are a total stranger to Android, the journey will be too hard.
From what I saw, the series mentions general Android as well, not only game development. For some of these topics you can find information in the general tutorials as well but if you want more detail, this is for you.
In this tutorial you will learn how to set up the action bar, how to add actions, how to split, hide, and overlay it, as well as how to add navigation. You will also learn about action bar interactivity, such as how to handle clicks on its items and to use action views. While you could write Android applications that do not involve any data input, often you will need external data.
