which app for android programming

Posted 23 December 2013 - 05:25 AM

Hy there!

I am a student in my final years of collage, where i studied computer science. I consider myself a good programmer, and i enjoy coding in C++. But for my thesis I decided to write an application for a tablet like Nexus 7 and others that have Android OS. The application would be something like a diary app for teachers, but with many other functions including statistical informations about their students, charts from that information, the option of making pictures and thus the GUI would need to be quite good.
But i do not know where to start... I found a couple of SDK-s but unfortunately i have no experiences with programming for Android, so if anybody has experiences with programming apps for Android i would be very grateful for helping me out.
The ones i found were these:
Corona SDK
PhoneGap
Marmalade
Titanium
Xamarine

I was mainly thinking of using Mamalade, what do you think?

Hey.

Personally I'd start with the official Android Developers Training. That'll teach you how to actually develop for android.

Those things you listed all seem like cross-platform dev tools. Having never used any of them, I can't say if they are any better than the actual SDKs for each platform, but I'm betting they don't exactly simplify matters.

I like using the Corona SDK which can cross-compile into android and iPhone. I know Java which you can use to strictly program for android or you can learn Objective-C for the iPhone. Hope this helps!
