My First Mobile App

I've been trying to push my limits for the past few days, to make up for the fact that I've been very de-motivated. So, I decided to pick up the progress on WNC Local, which has been going well. I've also been working on the WePay API as well, and that's been...enlighetning? It's been a little challenging, but it's good to get the experience.

So, to take a break from the many hours I've spent slaving over the API, I decided to switch directions for a bit and start tackling the Android and see what I can do with mobile apps. Not having a speck of knowledge in Java, it is a real challenge.

However, thanks to the Android SDK bundle, the Eclipse IDE was included (I've had experience with Eclipse when I was working on C++ back in 2003), and Eclipse+Android Development Toolkit (ADT), getting to "Hello World" was fairly simple.

Using the techniques mentioned on the basic training page, I created the following:
My First App Icon
(Yes, that is Asuna in the background)

My First App

The basic training allowed for the creation of the basic app: input text, output the text.
My First App Output

The documentation was not completely fool-proof, so I had to do some additional research to do a few things (thanks to Toast), like this:
Search Button Pressed

Settings Button Pressed

And the documentation didn't go this far, so I thought I'd add this based on some UI experiences:
String cannot be Blank

I know it's not a very impressive app, but it's not bad for my 1st one done within an hour.

In case you want to fork it or view the source code, I have the app on Github: https://github.com/kode29/MyFirstApp

Here's the APK if you want it

Here's to seeing what Mobile App Development can do!
