    Tips for Beginner Mobile App Developers

    Hi, I'm just new to programming and I want to make my own mobile app. I just wanted to ask for your advice. Can you give me some useful tips? Any lessons you've learned when you were just starting out? Any easy-to-use programs you can recommend? Thanks so much!

    Here is one useful tip for you. User interface is essential to the success of any mobile application. Great user interface is much better than any faster, more functional application but with so-so user interface. Remember, easier to use, the more chance of success in the marketplace.

    Hello everyone! I have read about mobile application and I am also currently eager to know more information about it. Thanks for sharing your views here. I heard that there are many mobile apps available to help one build an application that may even suit your budget. I am also trying to see more reviews about which is easier to use.

    Hi Maryann, thanks! Are you a developer too? What platforms/programs have you used in the past and which do you think is best? I currently am choosing between Unity, Xamarin, and Titanium, but you might know something better.

    Titanium is good. Xamarin is good too but expensive. But are you a student? Xamarin is currently offering free subscription to students, so if you are, you might want to take advantage of that. I suggest though, you have to be good in native code first. You can actually create mobile apps if you know native coding without the need for any of these 3rd party programs.

    Learning Java is a definite need if you want something high quality, but to get used to the structure and the way Android works, MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has created a free online tool for creating basic applications and learning the structure. And for learning Java, I can't say I have learned it myself, but I am in the process of doing so, and there are a lot of webinars (web seminars/lectures) out there (Google should become a close friend), and for a quick and dirty approach, Sams Publishing and the For Dummies series have nice resources as well.

    Start learning programming from OOP basic concepts and then code by yourself some small programs preferably in Java.
