Apps Can you guys tell me which things to learn please?


Hi guys,

I am new to the forum.

Currently I have no programming experience except basic HTML and basic php.

However, I have always kept my interest in the technology world.

I am planning to make an android app that will be a mobile app for a website that I don't own.

There is already an app for the site but all it does is load up the mobile version of the website which can be accessed through a normal browser as well.

What I want to do is to make a proper mobile app.

For example, I wish I can load up threads in a forum in bigger texts, load up forums in bigger icons, let users swipe through pages, recognize gestures to go to certain forums.

At the moment I only have abstract ideas about the app.

The reason why I am putting this post up is because I was hoping to get some advices on which languages to learn besides JAVA and which IDE to use.

Also advices on making apps in general or even better on apps like mine would be of a great help to me.

Thank you :)

I moved this here to get some better eyes on it. I'm not a developer, but it seems to me a lot of folks like the eclipse IDE. Check the sticky threads at the top of this forum for instructions.:)
