Ok, so I want to develop an application for the phone that gets some data from a website then displays it. There is an RSS feed and I only want a part of the description tag. I need to a starting point to jump off from. Many many moons ago I used to tinker with C and C++ using a GNU compiler. I have a basic understating of programming (or had anyway, but I'm sure it will come back). A major hurdle for me is that I have never developed anything with a GUI other than some little BS things with VBasic years and years ago. From what I've read it seems Eclipse with the ADT (android SDK) are the tools to use? Any help, tutorials, ebooks, would be greatly appreciated. Also, does java have procedures for taking that RSS feed and parsing the data I want from it? Thank you for the help, I'm sure I'll be asking for more soon.


Also, I have a 64 bit system but do I download the 64 bit or 32 bit Eclipse IDE and compiler?

Just download the 64bit Eclipse IDE (there are problems with EE, so the standard version!). And the install the ADT and Android SDK from Android.
In there, there is a ton of tutorials and articles on how Android works, so just start reading and trying it out - starting here: Fundamentals

And then HF
