Go to Google's Android development web site, download/install the android emulator, learn Java (Android's Dalvik is java with a different compiler/virtual-machine), and get some Java programming books. There are tonnes on Amazon.

You need to know Java, if you don't then go and learn it then come back.

If you know Java, then perhaps reading one of these books will be suficient enough


First of thing you must have java knowledge. Without knowing knowledge of java Android development is difficult. You can refer following books to learn Android App Development.

• Unlocking Android: a developer's guide

• Android Programming Tutorials
