    [Need Advise] develop apps running in android

    Dear All Friends,

    I am new to android app development but I have basic programming experience

    I planning to develop an application that can running in android platform and hope you can give me some ideas and tips.

    Basically I want to build an application for the user to do the daily inventory records.
    These daily inventory record will need to be consolidate back to a central computer (we can connect via cable to update), so the records are updated in one place and able to generate reports.

    I am thinking of MS excel and MS Access, but I am not sure whether that is possible.

    I hope you can share me your generous idea.

    Many thanks.

    Gary

    Hi Gary,

    In the past few weeks, have you gotten any further on your idea?

    Your app idea is possible, though the data will be first consolidated on a database (Ex: MySQL, NoSQL, SQLite, and Microsoft, Google, and Amazon each have their own type of database you can use as a central location). Then you can allow users to save or export data in a format they prefer (easiest one in my opinion is CSV). They could save the data to their phone and use a cable to transfer the file to the computer, or it could do the connection through WiFi. You could have an option in the app to send the data or summarized report to the user's email.

    There are many different ways to create each app.

    When starting off developing apps, the best way to gain experience is to make many small apps for different purposes. Then, slowly just start adding more functionality to each of the different apps. When you are first starting off, the official Android site, Getting Started | Android Developers, is going to be your best friend. The page I linked you to has all the information you need for your app.

    Then, once you would like to create apps to put on the market, you may want to do some background research to see if there are already apps out there like the one you want to develop. Usually there are, but by looking at those apps, you can probably find a way to do something better or create more functionality. That way, you can distinguish yourself and people would want to download your app over others.

    Let me know if you have any more questions,

    ps - IMHO, all Android developers should browse through Android Developers in order to see the paradigms and to know what is possible or not.
