android app creation

Is there any easy way to do this...a template program or something? Or can only uber code monkeys handle it.

From what I know, Android OSs are similer to Linux, so one would probably need to have a decent knowledge about working with code.
Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Take any post I write with a grain of salt. I've been wrong before, and can be again

I'm not sure what you need here, but if you need an application to collect and retreive data, and that can make calculations with that data HanDBase might work for you.  It is a database that you can format (easily) to do what you want.

A companion desktop program is available for either PC or Mac which can synchronize with the handheld unit (rare in the Android world, though it was very common back in the Palm OS days).  It is a small company but has been arond since Palm days.  Support is excellent and they have a really good online support forum.  There are also hundreds of pre formatted databases that can be downloaded for free (and customized if wanted).

No easy way.  I believe you are in an area with a lot of universities.  Google "Java Users Group".  They can program android apps.  They generally have a meeting once a month.  Go to a meeting and they can help you with it.  Probably they'll do most of it.

If it's for a game (or even if it's not for a game) then I'd recommend GameMaker Studio.  But it's a little expensive (to export to Android you will need either Master edition (about $800) or Professional edition+Android module (which comes to about $300 total)).

You do need to know a little programming but the language is very easy to learn.  I have never used the Android export though, so I'm not sure how much of a hassle it is to actually get your app onto the mobile device and all that.  Also, I don't think it has support for the camera or microphone.

If you know Java then you're good to go. The Android SDK seems easy enough to navigate, but I've never gotten round to trying anything -because it's still too daunting for me.

there's a great language called Processing that is quite simple and easy to use. It has great documentation. You can see immediately what it is you're doing. You can develop for Android using Processing.

 You might be able to use chunks of other people's code, providing it's free.

Oh, and if you're interested in Windows, take a look at Microsoft Project Sienna ;)

If you've got the idea but don't want to program it yourself, I could try programming it for you.  I'll do it for free (I'm a game design student and I need some projects to work on for my portfolio anyway).  Let me know if you're interested.

Now that's a solid offer.
