Yes, we figured you'd need a quick and handy guide you can leave open on your screen while you attempt your first Android app! Developing for Android is quite easy, and that's the best part about it. It utilises Java as the programming language and runs on a Dalvik Virtual Machine, which differs from a Java Virtual Machine.
