Willing to learn to program on android, should I start with Java?

First of all, I want to introduce myself, I'm Uriel, and I live in Mexico, I'm an student of dentistry. Hello everyone here.

So, I want to program some apps for my Android cellphone, and some friends have told me that programming on Android is like programming in Java, is this correct?

If that is truth, how should I start to learn how to program on Java? Which is a good webpage, or where can I find good tutorials?


Thanks!
-Uriel

    Hi there!

    Yes you it right about learning Java before kick staring android application development. I have started learning Java from this book called "The Complete Reference Java, J2SE 5th edition.

    Download the Eclipse IDE that is required to code the Java programs. http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/

    PS: The collection concepts of Java is the foundation of the Android app development.

    Let me know if I was helpful.

    If it's not too late...

    99% of apps are written in Java, as that's the language of Android. However, it's possible to put other layers on top to allow programming without needing Java. I have an app called [link=http://easycoder.memabilia.net]Easy Coder[/link] which is available from the Play Store.

    It's a complete high-level programming system, where all you need is your phone and the product website. No Java or Eclipse. It's suitable for beginners but it's not just for them; it's a high-productivity tool for creating games, demos and apps that provide information. And it's free.

    All feedback is welcome.
