Android Tutorial, Part 1: Creating an Android Project Using Android Studio

Hi all! I’m starting this tutorial series to teach newbies to develop apps for android using its native language Java and the official android IDE Android Studio. You are free to use and share, and spread this tutorial with or without permission as long as you would link and give attribution to the source material.

Before we start here’s what you need: - Install android studio in your PC (at least 2GB RAM required, 8GB recommended) - Android Device for testing your app - Basic programming knowledge

First step, we’re gonna define what we are building first: A simple app to rate internet service provider. We all know that sometimes, ISP services vary from location to location so we’re gonna make our app location aware.

Open Android Studio, then create a new project.

Open Android Studio, then create a new project.

We’ll name it Rate My ISP, though you can choose any name for this. Click next.


Ycan choose any name for this.

Make sure Phone and Tablet is selected. And select minimum SDK: API 15 (Ice Cream Sandwich), this would tell the IDE that we are developing for ICS and above. Click next.


Select “Empty Activity”. This will create an activity that will not have much content. Click next.


Let’s name it SplashScreenActivity, make sure that Generate Layout File is selected. Android UI is created and defined using XML, so this will generate an XML File for our SplashScreenActivity. Click Finish.
