I am a part-time Android developer, and I don't find Android development, or any code development "breaking and entering".

There are lots of development tools for Android and lots of code examples and projects. You don't need to "break and enter" to do Android development anymore than it is necessary to 'break and enter" do learn Linux or any other OS.

So, basically, I completely disagree that "Android being a phone O/S, during my learning process is was necessary for me to do much 'breaking and entering' in order to achieve (my) goals"....

.. because there are plenty of development platform options for Android phones; and none require "breaking and entering" other than perhaps "rooting" the phone.

Rooting is pretty standard practice and not considered "breaking and entering".. it is simply installing a privileged OS on a phone which you own.

Hope this answers your question.

Hi Neo...

Got the SDK and Studio; 750MB total phew.

Now a huge learning curve to find out how to use it.

Thanks...

Great news wisecracker! Start a new thread and feel free to chronicle your adventure with building your first Android app using Android Studio on the Mac!

There is a huge learning curve, so gimme a little time...

I have a fetish for Oscilloscopes, Signal Sources, Logic Analysers and RF Test Gear
and I will attempt an Arbitrary LF Function Generator first, maybe dual channel, say
20Hz to 10KHz.

I am wondering if, say, the Samsung Galaxy SIII has the same Audio I/O as the single
pole MBP 13" Audio I/O.

Everything HAS to be able to be bulit and understood by 8 to 10 year olds and
I have to assume that kids don't have access to any gear at all so calibration will br tricky.

Whatever I do I will give it all away as usual as CC0 licence, (Public Domain).

Now to attempt my first "Hello World." this weekend... ;oD

Fantastic!

I look forward to your tutorial on this for everyone.

Who knows, maybe you will inspire others here to become Android programmers and they will create a nice app...

Don't let anyone discourage you, please.

Go for your dreams... never stop learning ... enjoy the fact you are motivated to do it

Crikey, I am not that good...

But I will certainly have a go. Remember; I am an amateur not a pro' and I code badly.
I can't get onto a machine until I get home from work and also I am almost 63 so my
dexterity is not as good as it once was...

LBNL, I have built the HW add-on for the shell AudioScope elsewhere on here but not
had time to modify the code, test and calibrate as yet. Also I might even change my mind
and transformer couple to the mic socket, to completely isolate the measuring input from
the computer mic input...

However I will take on the challenge and try my best... ;o)

I can honsetly say that this site stands head and shoulders above a Mac Forum site I
joined ages ago. I will never post there again - nuff said...

Hey,

Honestly, even when Google first started, the code base was mostly a hack; and ditto for Facebook, and just about all start-ups. None of those guys were "pros" when they first started; they simply had a dream and the courage to "go for it" and then they become "pros".

Of course, you are not trying to be the next Google or FB; but at least you can enjoy your idea/dream/ambition/goal to build an Android app.

I look forward to your progress, even if it is step-by-step; because even when we climb the highest mountain, it starts with a single step, and it is usually the first step which is the hardest.
