Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Learning Simple Android Development Tools.
…So we've looked at three dramatically different ways of building Android apps.…We looked at MIT App Inventor 2, where you program using…blocks and you don't have to type a single line of code.…We looked at Basic for Android, which only runs on…Windows, but is dramatically easier to use than using Java…and either Eclipse or Android Studio to build apps for…Android using a language that looks very similar to Visual Basic.…And finally we looked at hybrid apps that…allow you to build apps without writing any…code but also by generally not using any…logic unless you get a professional programmer involved.…So the next step you take from here is to think about the kind of app you want…to build and to think about how you want…to be able to engage in the app building process.…If you want to try to learn how to code.…
App Inventor is a great solution for that.…It will get you in the process of…creating controls on the screen, and learning how to…structure logic behind those controls in order to…be able to make something happen in an app.…
