Bloomy welcomes you back. Hope you all are geared up for another striking tech blog.
Being a tech maniac, digging the basics of how things function has always been of keen interest to me. From the basic Nokia 3310 to Samsung 9+ or iPhone X, I have always had the curiosity to get to the bottom line. Believe it or not, it’s a whole new world when one starts exploring.
The time when these applications started taking over, they had me intrigued. I used to question myself – How can one create such cracking applications that hold an undivided cosmos within them? What tools could have been used to start off from the scratch and reach to the terminal?
Einstein said “I have no special talent. I am just passionately curious”. And look where curiosity led him. I for sure have no comparison with the great man here but it’s the inquisitive nature of mine that helps me get to the details.
So, after a whole lot of research, I got a hold of the best tools one can use for App Development.
Now being in a world where its not only Apple but also Android that’s moving with a fast pace, I picked out one that is best for each of these.
THE BEST TOOLS TO CREATE A MOBILE APPLICATION:
With the versions of platforms available, we have two to choose from. Android and IOS. Both being of different scores, we have different tools for them. Starting off with Android, the developing app that suits best is Android Studio. Let’s get into the details of how is it the best one out.
As the name speaks for itself. This IDE has been dedicated to Android. Java being the basic language code for Android, you certainly don’t need to master on the Language codes as far as you have a little know how about the same. I intend on elaborating how can one go about with Android Studio in order to develop an application of their own.
1- STEP 1:
Every cycle starts off with a single step. For this to mount with, you need to begin with Installing the Program i.e. Android Studio following the instructions provided.
2- STEP 2:
You will have to begin with “Start with a new Android Studio Project”. Here you get to assign a new name to your project. Also ensure that the Phone/Tablet check box has been marked right for you to be able to test your application once ready.
3- STEP 3:
The game starts here. Welcome the Realm with your own customized message in the section of MAIN ACTIVITY. This will be the key to your city. The door from where the end users will get to peep inside what you have created for them.
4- STEP 4:
This is from where the users will lead to pages ahead. Drag on to the button from the main menu to your page and name it as per your choice. This button will be the link between your initial and next pages.
5- STEP 5:
Now comes the time when you have to input your second activity. The other set of events for the end customer. From the main menu, select for New > Activity > Blank Activity (Which can be renamed as per your desire).
Ensure you finish all the activities before moving on to the next step.
6- STEP 6:
This step is about interlinking your previous activities with a click. An on-click button through which you can get back to the activities or move ahead to your desired page.
7- STEP 7:
Your final exam is now here. Testing of your application. Once the green play symbol has been pressed, it asks you to choose your device for the rundown. After the emulator has been launched, your app will auto run on the device opted for.
8- STEP 8:
All-Hail! As your first ever Android application is all set to proceed with. This was the basic process cycle for you to develop an initial interface to start off with.
I hope being an android user and a beginner level developer, this guide proves out to be contributive towards further learning and future Android app developments.
Next on the blog, we have the best tool for IOS App Development. Named as: X-Code
