Android Studio

Android Studio is the IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for the creation of Android apps and is based on IntelliJ IDEA.

I began app development with Apple years ago, but as Android has so much of the market, I have realised that it is better to start again with a different IDE, programming language and platform.

So, now I am in Android development and will provide resources for app development on this site, as I work my way through the IDE.
