Creating Attractive Layouts:

The fact is that before downloading any type of app or game from Play Store,users including me first read the reviews about the opened app or game. If the app has majority of bad reviews, I don’t download it on my Android device because I think it is a waste of time to download such type of apps having majority of negative reviews.

If you use dull on unattractive colors in your Android app there are possibilities that your app will not get a good score from users and hence a time will come when no one will download your app. To avoid such situation you must create attractive layouts for your app. Creating attractive layouts are easy,anyone can do this by learning XML language. Therefore learning XML language will help you to create attractive layouts. You can learn XML language from here.

Be a Java Guru:

Java is a very popular programming language developed by Oracle(previously known as Sun Microsystems).Question arises here,why you should be a”Java Guru”? The reason to be a Java guru is that,Java adds great features to your app.Learning Java is also not very difficult. A bit of concentration can help you to become a java guru.

Follow the rules:

Google has defined some rules for Android developers. Your developed app should be up to the standard mark otherwise you will face failure and your dream of becoming a good Android developer will break down like a home of cards.

Practice makes you Perfect:

When I was in the process of learning C++ language,I used to ask everyone how I can become a good programmer? The answered I got almost from everyone was”Practice,Practive and Practice”.So I started practicing the C++ syntax on daily basis.Within few days,I found myself a better programmer. So it is easy to practice your knowledge on daily basis and try to solve your language’s syntax errors yourself and you will become a successful Android developer.
