Programming Languages You Should Know To Develop Your First Android Application

The growing trend of smart phones and mobile applications has resulted in Android application development in Miami turning out to be one of the hottest fields of profession for both individuals and business enterprises. While a few individuals decide to take up Android apps development as their profession, the rest develop apps just for their passion. Be it for profession or for passion, developing an Android app needs a lot of skills and expertise.

If you are a newbie to the field of App development who is in an urge to develop the first Android application, it is a must for you to learn Java and XML. Being the most widely used pair of languages for developing mobile apps, Java and XML are Google’s recommendation for Android mobile apps development.


Considered as the king of the Android programming languages, Java is most preferred by programmers as it is platform independent and a lot of tools can be used through Android Studio offered by Google. In addition Java is a simple language that can be used to develop complex programs using basic commands.


Regarded as Java’s best partner for application development, XML is a label based markup language. The major advantage of using XML for app development is that it allows the storage of information and data in a format that is readable both by the computers and the humans. Being a native entity of Android studio, XML can be used to create elements that need to be displayed on the screen. In simple words, it can be said that XML is used for creation and organization of the screen layout of an application.

Android Studio

Once you get a hang of Java and XML, you can begin to develop your first Android application by installing the Android development environment called Android Studio. Upon installation, you can start developing your app by entering the detail of your app such as name, domain and folder where you wish to save the app, and the devices on which the app can be used. Once the basic information is keyed in, you can select the design for your app based on the Material Design in order to enable the platform to set up files to make programming of our app easy. Once all this done, we will land at the Code Editor where we will have to pour out all our Java and XML skills.

If you are thinking of where you can find the Java and XML files, here is the answer. All the Java and XML resources and files created for your app will be available in the Java Folder in the Android Java Developer. However, the XML files corresponding to our app’s design will be in the XML and Values folders.

Now that we know that Android and XML are the two most crucial languages for Android app development in Miami, it is a must for you to know how to use them to bring your ideas into a proper form.
