    Sorry, I'm new to this forum, and idk if this is where I post this or not):

    My question is, how hard is it to code a droid application? And how hard would it be to connect it to a website? Like what type of access would I need to connect it to the website?(Me and my friend run a Website/Forum and we want people to be able to browse the forum through an Application on their phone, but we are not the hosts of the Website(We are paying a company to host it)

    How hard wold this be to make? Also, any other information you could give me about this would be appreciated.

    -Thanks.

    Sounds like you want an app similar to Tapatalk. Another option would be a mobile version of your website for easy phone browsing.

    Android is based off of Java so any background you have in that language is helpful. Start with the SDK, there is a lot of info there. I use Eclipse as my IDE. My main reference sources are the books written by Mark Murphy and the Stackoverflow.com website.

    There are sample apps as part of the SDK to help you see how an Android app is built.

    Hope that helps
