    I would like to try to create my first app and would like some advice. I would like to create a "simple" app that uses google maps or similar that let the user "draw" a route on a map and then make it possible to walk/run that route one or multiple times and have the total distance/number of laps specified after this is finished.

    How hard would that be for a beginner and what steps do I need to take to build that app.

    Are you familiar with the Java programming language?

    Yes, I am far from an expert on java but I think I have a pretty good knowledge of it.

    The first thing I would do would be to follow some simple tutorials online to get the feel of Android Studio. You may then want to familiarize yourself with the Google Maps API as this would be extremely helpful with your application.
