    I assume that by 'smoothness' you mean that how quickly and faithfully the screen responds.

    There are two primary factors: the version of Android and the hardware.

    Later versions of Android have changes that help make the interaction more responsive, however this can only go so far and a faster processor and more memory also has a big effect.

    A further element of hardware that can have a bearing is the actual screen: cheaper (and some older) devices often have screens that are simply less responsive.

    Re learning to program for Android: there are many tutorials available on-line. Simply Google "Android programming tutorial". These usually include information about and links to the software you need for your development environment.
