Assuming you are comfortable programming in Java, go to http://developer.android.com to get started.

If you aren't comfortable programming in Java, I suggest you learn how to program on a PC first. It is MUCH easier to learn the fundamentals on a PC before moving to the constrained environment of a handheld.


There is also the AppInventor site, but it will be shut down at the end of the year. If you want to create something and don't care about maintaining it past two weeks, that may be an option. :-)

If you already know C# and prefer to use that, instead of Java, you can also fork out the $400 for Mono for Android which allows you to develop for Android entirely in C#.

If you are new to Java I encourage you to begin programming in Processing (processing.org) it is a programming language based in java (basically it uses java with a lot of things pre-made), it is a perfect language for starting to learn the basics of Java.

Here you have some tutorials that I found very interesting and useful when I started to develop for Android:
http://www.vogella.d...se/article.html -- tutorial for installing the Eclipse IDE
http://www.vogella.d...id/article.html -- tutorial for setting up the eclipse IDE to program for Android (And a introduction to developing on Android)
http://mobile.dzone....ng-android-game -- Making a sprite with Android

On this tutorials you will also find how to set up the SDK for developing for the device you want to.

By the way if you are planning to develop in Java try to be used to Eclipse, it's a widely used IDE for developing in Java.

(Sorry my bad english)
