Learning to program is awesome. You can make yourself think in very different ways, and learn a trade that will be extremely useful in years to come. Plus, it’s fun!
There are plenty of programs on desktop computers for writing and compiling code – but what about on Android? Here are 15 apps that will hopefully make your life easier while programming, whether you are just beginning, or have been programming your whole life. Productivity is extremely important in programming, so maybe a few of these apps will help you be on your way to being a coding maniac!
Once you’ve built your app, it’s a good idea to look at an application performance monitoring software. Apps such as Stackify and New Relic allow you to test how well your app is running and investigate error logs. You’ll find though that many of these apps have their own debugging and testing environments included and many don’t even require programming knowledge in order to get started.
So you want to create an Android app. Fortunately, the process doesn’t need to start from scratch. With one (or more) of these eight great Android app templates, you can get a head start in developing and publishing your very own Android app.
XDA-Developers is a great community, famous for all sorts of mobile hacking and development but with a particular focus on Android and Windows Phone. It provides great resources and information about all things developer-related, with a wiki and a large forum that has over 4,000,000 active users. It is due to those active developers and forum members that XDA is considered a leader among all dev communities. Most of the custom ROMs ever built are made by the experienced developers over at XDA.
These developers often create apps and software which are not suitable for the Android Market – some of which are even against the Market’s Terms of Service. Here are a few great examples that I find to be very useful and one of a kind. Some of these can be found on the Android Market, but many can’t; all are made by members of XDA-Developers.
