A unique application development Web site, FreeAndroidAppMaker.com, is making it easy and cost-effective for people to create their own applications for Google’s Android phones and tablets. The site offers review, building, and submission of apps to the App Store all free of charge. Users simply have to supply the content and the Web site does all the work.Just in time for this month’s debut of Google’s new online App Store, an application development Web site is making it possible for consumers to develop applications for the Google Android OS free of charge. The site—FreeAndroidAppMaker.com— offers a user-friendly solution for inexperienced application developers.”Making your own Android app has never been so easy and affordable,” said Adan Vielma, president of IntroWizard LLC. “We’re trying a unique way of reaching out to consumers with app ideas but no understanding of how to make them or the funds to pay a developer.”FreeAndroidAppMaker.com represents a unique option in the marketplace. Unlike other app builder services, it offers free review, creation, and submission of apps to the App Store Marketplace. As compensation, the site places advertising in each of the free applications but also offers an advertising free paid submission service.
The new Web site provides a quick, cost-effective solution for casual developers who are interested in creating their own Droid compatible applications. The goal is to provide a personal development experience for people who have very limited or no expertise in computer programming. FreeAndroidAppMaker.com provides a simple, streamlined interface that walks individuals through the entire app development process.
Here’s how it works: Users provide the content—text, pictures or videos—and the Web site’s team of experts program, assemble and submit the final product to the App Store. “Now budding developers are in complete control of creating a fun and engaging Android app that they can share with friends and others in the greater community,” Vielma said.

I want to learn making Android app, just to make an app for my business website, could anyone help me how to learn android app, can anyone point out to related books which can teach an amateur like me clearly or any online tutorials. I look out for answers thanks in advance.I’m interested in the same thing, and while I heard of a few people who jumped right into Android and learned Java on the way, I’ve decided to start from the bottom and learn Java. Head first Java is a good book, and my main reference point. If I get to something that is a bit confusing, I jump to another book to try to take it from a different point of view. The other books I mostly use are “Sam’s Teach yourself Java Programming in 24 Hours” and “Beginning Java Programming for Dummies”. I generally hate any book that is “for dummies” or claims to teach you something “in 24 hours”, but these books actually work for me. Don’t be afraid to use more than one book/site.

Lastly, everyone will tell you that the best way to learn is to jump in and start coding, but you obviously need a little info first. What I did was study up the basics(variables, syntax, and most importantly OOP), then start coding like crazy. Even if they are simple as hell programs. I would make myself write about 5 programs per day when I started(and still do). Some of them would be as simple as writing a 10 line Dog class with a Bark() method, then crating another class with a main method to run the program. Sure they are easy program, but it still help to be consistent and definitely helps keep you skillset moving forward. If you want any info or books, just let me know. I’m pretty new myself and am really enjoying Java so far. I can’t wait til the day where I can work on apps, kernels, and ROMs!As a big fan of the Android operating system, and a user of the programming language Basic4Android (B4A) it was only a matter of time before I wrote about it, so here it is….

B4A is a very easy to use programming language that helps you make your own applications, or apps, for an Android device. The language itself is reminiscent of the BASIC programming language, hence the name, and is very easy to pick up and learn.

I have created gps, video streaming and even a magic eight ball simulator with it and you only have to go to the languages homepage or its forum to see examples of just what can be achieved with it.

Having previously only used early forms of the Basic programming language (as a teenager I dabbled with BBC and Commodore Basic) and Googles App Inventor I found it easy to pick up and within a few minutes of trying it was already creating simple apps. Within a few days I was creating more complex apps.

At this point I want to point out that B4A is NOT an interpreter, your app is a native android app which is converted from your basic code into a standalone Android application. That means you get the ease of use of the Basic programming language but the speed of a native Android app because you don’t have an interpreter in between Android and your app telling each how to interact. Whatever you create with it will work the way you want it to, it just won’t be as hard as developing with something like Eclipse.

Part of the beauty of B4A isn’t just that it is easy to learn, but that it can use libraries created by its users to extend its functionality even further.

A library is, in basic terms, a small collection of instructions that allow your app to do things that B4A on its own may not do. There are libraries to record or stream audio, to parse xml or Json data, to scan barcodes, to turn on or off gps remotely and much more.

With Android becoming the most popular mobile operating system an easy way to develop apps for it makes good commercial sense and ofcourse good sense for programmers who would like an easy way to program for it.
B4A has a very helpful user community, plenty of example code available and can be bought at a surprisingly low price which given how powerful and well featured it is I must admit did pleasantly surprise me. There is also a trial version available on its homepage that you can download to see what you think of it.And so that all important question – is it easy to use, and does it really work?The answer to both questions is a resounding yes. Do the apps work on the Android market place? Yes. Aside from the many more mainstream apps other programmers sell on the market made using B4A, I myself have some what could be called niche apps (10,000 downloads) on the market and I can confirm that they work as any Android app should.B4A created apps are just as good and quick as apps hand coded in Java, as you would expect, but with the added benefit of being quick and easy to develop and deploy.So if you have an Android device and fancy writing your own software for it, check out the website and give the trial version a go and make your own mind up.
