How to make an Android App?

There are various steps involved in Android app development, but here we will discuss in brief:

1. Android Studio: The first step of android development is Android studio, which is a direct product of Google. Android app can be developed in Android studio only.

2.Installation of Java Development Kit: In addition to the ANdroid studio, it is essential to install the Java Development kit for android app development as it will interpret and compile the code for this process.

3. Start the Project: Click on start android project option, then enter the name of the application and the company details. This information will be needed for the process.

4. Activity Selection: Option of customizing your app the way you like will be available here. There will be various fields available that need to be finalized for the app-building.

5. Layout Selection: Here, we will finalize the images and menus along with letter fonts. Here the menu and the titles are finalized.

6. Welcome page edition: Here, we need to go to the activity_main.xml tab, then click & drag "Hello, World! From the upper left corner of the device to the middle of the screen and move to various folders and double click the strings.xml file. Here find the "Hello World!" and add "Welcome to my App!"

7. Add Button to activity: In the Palette menu to the left of display, find Button. Click the Button to be positioned under welcome message. Afterthat, go to properties and find the field for text. Alter the message from “New Button” to the “Next Page”.

Now return to your content_main.xml and click on the button. In the right corner, where you have the various fields for the button, you will have an option called ‘onClick’. Click on this and then select the ‘onClick’. After this, you have told Android Studio that you want to associate the section of code with the button created.

8. Test the App: Here, you need to run & test the application. Click on run app from the below menu. Follow the steps to launch the emulator running the app.
