    I just finished my java course and I am in a software class and one of our assignments is creating an app for Android, except I am unversed in swing, as well as the Android SDK. So...is there any mnemonics that can help me memorize these things or basic terminology about the Android API syntax? Like what exactly is activity? What exactly is intent? Does everything basically work the same as in Java? What is a listener? Also on the XML generated files, if one alters their java file, does one have to somehow alter their XML files as well? I am not versed in XML as well, but it looks very similar to JavaScript which I am familiar with. I know what GUI is, but I am also having problems with creating a GUI for my app.

    DROIDDraw can handle the GUI for you/ introduce you to Android related XML.

    You should check out the official android dev site for anything sdk related the really do have a good intro, reference section to the API
