Simple Tuorials on Android Development

Postby saigeethamn » Thu Aug 27, 2009 6:38 am

Hi,

I see that Android has grown so rapidly in the last couple of years that all the material available is mature and helpful for the already android-educated.

For a novice, the android official documentation is the best. However, when I was trying to learn the very basics, I found that very simple tutorials with sample code for each new concept would be a wonderful way to introduce the many "NEW" aspects like intent and intent filters etc.

So, here I have created a few tutorials and thought it might be useful for those really new to android (this list is growing rapidly).

You may access the first 3 parts of a series of tutorials at the following links:
The part 1 introduces you to the basic jargon like intent, activity, service, content provider viewable at Android Fundamentals
- on fundamental jargon

Part 2 gives you a very simple example on explicit intent accessible here

Part 3 explains and demonstrates implicit intents accesbile along with complete source code downloadablehere

Part 4 gives code snippets for invoking native applications of google through implicit intents, accessible here

Part 5 shows how you can invoke one activity from another and get back a result from the second activity into the first. You can view it
here

I have added a few tutorials for local service, notification, remote service etc. at Android Tutorial


Thanks

Hi Warrenfaith,

It sounds like a good idea. I will certainly be creating a few more tutorials. So, when I do, I can probably share it at your site as well.

Thanks a lot! I've only just started looking at them since I'm at work, but it looks very promising.

I appreciate the tutorials going up for all of us new Android developers!
