Desperate Noob

Postby MsNoob » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:48 pm

I'm a complete noob, so I apologise in advance if my questions reveal my total ignorance of what I am doing. :-)

I am trying to build apps to point to each of my websites. Just like, but with no advert, and with my certificate. I have spent all day on it, but have finally managed to get Java SDK, Eclipse, and Android SDK Manager running on my PC. OMG... I can't believe how hard it was!

I have two questions... in the hope of kindness (or pity!).

1. Can someone post the code I need to send the user to my site when they click the app? I guess it is simple... for you... but not for me. I can then just change the URL for each site I have.

2. I have some 'hello world' code in Eclipse, and can run it in the emulator. BUT, how do I make an APK file from that? How do I get from the code to the apk?

I know I have to sign it with my certificate after that, but that's a battle for another day.

If I can get these two questions sorted, I think I might make it through... perhaps.

Can someone help? Please?

If your app when launched just opens a website then this code should be put in the onCreate method of your primary Activity:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
Using java Syntax Highlighting
  1.                 Intent objIntent = new Intent();
  2.                 objIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
  3.                 objIntent.addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_BROWSABLE);
  4.                 objIntent.setData(Uri.parse(""));
  5.                 startActivity(objIntent);
Parsed in 0.015 seconds, using GeSHi

Replace my website with your own. You can also use this code to launch the website from within a button click action

To go from code to apk:
In Eclipse:

Right Click> Export > Android Application
Create the keystore and whatnot, make sure the validity is 25years
at the end of the process it'll ask you where you want the apk to go
EG: C:\Users\MsNoob\Apps\HelloWorld.apk

Then that apk is the signed apk that can be uploaded to Market
